It is heartening to see our optician friends put their heart and soul in restoring their businesses post the nation-wide lockdown. The economic condition is also gradually picking up pace. No matter what the challenge, the optician community has never stood down. And this time is no different as they were among the first to up their game, in view of the sanitisation and social distancing measures recommended by the government.

COVID-19 has changed the way we look at things. From the hesitance to step out to the need to sanitize, everyone is still getting accustomed to the new normal. Instead of looking at it as a problem, opticians across the country took up the so-called new normal as a challenge and once again emerged as winners with their exceptional service to the customers. This year’s ZEISS YOU&EYE Awards salutes the opticians who successfully rose to the occasion.
