Since opening its doors 10 years ago, Specsavers Ballarat has provided its customers with exceptional customer service, administering more than 99,800 eye tests and more than 144,100 pairs of glasses and prescription sunglasses.
To broaden eye care reach in the region, the Specsavers Wendouree store opened in December 2016, the team administering almost 17,000 eye tests in that time.

Co-owners optometrist Dean Binns and dispensers Krystal Green and Jai Carroll are encouraging the community to prioritise their eye health and proactively schedule necessary health checks.
Dean stresses the importance of regular testing. “It’s essential to have your eyes tested every two years to track any changes in eye health that may be occurring, even if you aren’t concerned about any changes in vision or don’t wear glasses,” he says.
The teams are also heavily involved in raising money for the community. Since 2013, they have donated a combined $10,200 to the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute and $10,300 to The Fred Hollows Foundation, as part of the Specsavers Community Program, with a portion of every pair of glasses sold goes towards both charities.
More recently, the stores hosted a fundraiser for Buy a Bale, an organisation that provides meaningful support to farmers by delivering hay and other essential items to farmers who have no feed left for their cattle.
