Airedale Opticians was established by qualified optometrist Mohammed Hafejee after he spent a lot of time working for high street optical chains. He noticed that a lot of the chains put glasses sales above anything else. This inspired Mohammed to start his own practices which were instead driven by investing time into professional development and the latest technologies, with customer care at the heart. Airedale Opticians is the longest established independent opticians in Keighley, and Cross Hills and has a large base of returning patients.
Airedale Opticians offers thorough eye exams, allocating longer appointment times to provide in-depth consultations. They also offer OCT and Optomap scans, being the only practice in the local area to provide this technology. Through continued learning and development, both practices now also offer an array of specialist services such as AMD Monitoring, Dry-Eye & Blepharitis Clinic, Punctum Plug Fitting, Tear Duct Syringing, Visual Stress Clinic, and more.
Supporting both practices will be THCP audiologist Faisal Imran, who will be providing various hearing care services across Keighley and Cross Hills. These include:
- FREE hearing tests
- Hearing aids
- Ear wax removal
- Hearing protection services
Faisal’s career began working within the NHS on a degree-based placement. However, after just 8 weeks of training, he was offered a full-time position within the audiology department after making such a good impression on the hospital’s lead audiologist.
Upon completing his degree, Faisal continued working for the NHS for another year before deciding it was time to join The Hearing Care Partnership. “One of the main reasons I decided to take a leap of faith and join THCP was the equipment, and the technology of the hearing aids at my disposal. I always felt that with the NHS we were somewhat restricted, but with THCP, we’re able to work with any manufacturer and use any hearing aid, which gives me all the tools I need to provide the best possible service to all my patients, and really make a difference to their lives!”
