When all you can see is opportunity

Find more opportunity in an Asda Optical store

Asda Opticians was first introduced to our stores back in the 2000. Now we have optical teams working in over 130 Asda stores across the United Kingdom.

We’re very proud of our approach to healthcare services at Asda. After all, our promise is to help people 'Save money. Live better.' So when someone visits our optometrists, they can expect one thing – great care and honest advice.

It’s one of the reasons we were given top scores for customer service in Which? magazine’s most recent opticians survey. Customers rate us highly – so do our employees. Here are some of the key factors behind that.

1. No extra selling

Our optometrists don’t have to spend time selling extras to customers. Because we have one price point, single vision glasses are the same price as varifocals, and there are no top-ups like thinner lenses, anti-reflection and scratch resistant coatings.

2. Fees paid

We’ll pay for your General Optical Council registration fees, and give you opportunities to obtain both interactive and non-interactive CET points.

3. Annual conference

Every year, we invite all of our optical professionals to our Optical Conference at Asda House. It’s a great place for everyone to come together, learn new ideas and share best practice.

4. Relocation package

Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible for a relocation allowance

5. Discretionary bonus

We offer competitive salaries – and you also have the chance to earn a good bonus if your performance measures up.

6. Benefits package

The package at Asda stands out – and includes pension, share save plan, discounted healthcare and a 10% discount card.

7. Community impact

At Asda we’re working to make our local communities healthier, happier and better places to be. Our optical teams often get involved in initiatives like fundraising for charity or imparting knowledge to people in the local area.
