EYE specialists Razak Optical Limited is expected to add four to five more employees to its payroll when it opens its third outlet at the Damodar City complex when Damodar City completes its Laucala Bay project.

The company yesterday marked an important milestone in its history when it signed a five-year tenancy contract with the Damodar City management.

Razak Optical Limited managing director Shameem Razak said plans were in the pipeline for this one investment, worth between $100,000 to $150,000.

"We also intend to have an operating theatre with an ophthalmologist for major eye surgeries at a much cheaper price," Mr Razak said.

"Private eye surgeries are very limited now and public eye departments are too clogged up, plans for the surgical theatre are still in the pipeline though.

"The contract is subjected to renewal after every five years," Mr Razak said.

While planning on expanding their business, the opening of the new shopping complex has given Razak Optical a perfect opportunity to open another retail outlet.

He said this outlet would serve many more customers who could not visit their centrally-located shop in the city.

"The plan for starting another branch where service could be provided after normal working hours has been in the pipeline for quite some time now," Mr Razak said.

"Damodar City development gave us that opportunity to have a branch in a different location, with a different concept to the retail aspect of the company," he said.

Mr Razak said it was the company's main objective to provide an easy and accessible eye care centre for members of the public.

"While designer brand frames like Oakley, Jaguar, Menrad, Joop will provide the glamorous side of styling, our low budget frames will be of no exceptions as we will cater for everyone.

"We intend to open Damodar branch to late evenings every day. There are plans of Sunday clinics," he said.

He added that services would also be able to be accessed by citizens who could visit the eye centre during their working hours.
