The company “has set out to build the largest network of opticians in Canada,” according to a press release.

Leading the effort is Claudia Rojas, head of opticianry, Specsavers Canada.

“In my new role as Head of Opticianry, I am guided by my commitment to promote eyecare and eye health awareness,” said Rojas. “I look forward to broadening our network and ensuring opticians feel relevant, important and appreciated, as they are integral to the eyecare industry.”

Rojas has served on the College of Opticians of British Columbia and is currently the vice president of the Opticians Association of Canada and president of the OAC’s British Columbia Chapter.

Founded in the U.K., Specsavers entered the Canadian market in November. The company describes itself as “the world’s largest optometrist-owned and -led business.”

Specsavers has more than 2,500 Specsavers locations across 11 countries.
