Huddersfield Hub is proud to welcome Valli Opticians as major new sponsors. It’s a growing, successful and innovative company which puts customer care at the heart of everything it does.

Since opening its first branch in 2005, Huddersfield-based Valli Opticians has flourished and expanded to 16 locations across Yorkshire and the North West.

The business is highly successful and ever growing, supporting over 100 jobs throughout the two regions.

The company’s latest venture, University Valli Opticians, is a pioneering collaboration with the University of Huddersfield.

A fully operational practice University Valli Opticians is based on the university campus but is open to the public. The state-of-the-art practice offers University of Huddersfield optometry students an unparalleled experience in their clinical development.

Throughout the firm’s growth, the ethos at Valli has remained unchanged. The company is committed to bringing back a sense of care to customers by building long-lasting relationships, with both staff and patients.

They ensure this by employing locally to create deep-rooted relationships within the community, listening and understanding customers’ needs and by simply being a friendly face who will give more time and care.

Moin Valli, founder and CEO of Valli Opticians, said: “As a business, we focus beyond simply generating sustainable profit.

“We also measure our performance on the positive impact our business makes on our communities. We do this by being actively involved in initiatives for local schools and universities, businesses and charities.”

With family values being at the forefront of everything they do, Valli take the time to ensure you receive personalised care within an environment where professional standards and customer care are paramount.

Unlike the quick 20-minute eye tests provided by many high street stores, Valli conduct tailored 45-minute tests and carry out a comprehensive examination of eye health and vision.

Valli have won 15 business and industry awards and Mr Valli himself was recently chosen as Yorkshire Live Business Person of the Year. The company also has a 98% customer satisfaction when it comes to eye tests.

In addition to the eye care, Valli now provides a full hearing care service including free hearing tests, ear wax removal and supply of hearing aids, all with a team of HCPC registered audiologists.

Valli also specialises in other cutting edge services to ensure you are getting the best treatment and care for your eyes; such services include myopia management and visual stress management.

Myopia (short-sightedness) is a very common eye condition affecting one in three people in the UK and usually starts in childhood.

However, Valli now provides a new lens which can treat myopia in children. The MiYOSMART spectacle lens provides full vision correction and has a treatment zone which slows down myopia progression by up to 60%.

University Valli Opticians is one of a small handful of practices in the whole of the UK to have the Lenstar Biometer, a piece of equipment which accurately measures the axial length of the eye, which is essential when monitoring myopia progression.

University Valli Opticians have also been raising awareness of children’s eye health in the region with a new research study where they carried out free vision screening for over 1,000 primary school children in Kirklees.

By doing these tests and measuring outcomes on children, they hope to discover how skills for these tests develop with age and impact on learning to read.

When it comes to providing quality products, Valli Opticians are home to some of the best. They stock a large range of designer eyewear including Tom Ford, D&G, Ray Ban, Paul Smith and Lindberg.

Valli provide easy monthly payments for their products and services through the ‘Valli VIP Plan.’ Starting at just £10 per month, the plan includes free eye tests and imaging, 25% off complete glasses and so much more.

You can even upgrade the plan to include your whole family, which gives the highest quality care that you need, along with peace of mind and convenience.

For businesses look no further than Valli Co-optic – the easy solution to a company’s eyecare needs.

Any business can create a Valli co-optic account online in minutes and purchase vouchers for their employees to use and exchange in return for eye care services at any Valli branch. This unique service makes eyecare simple and reduces all that extra admin and paperwork.

Mr Valli is currently vice-chair of the charity ‘Outlookers’ which has achieved tremendous growth since 2017 and is now the leading sight loss charity in Kirklees.

Their main fundraising event, the ‘Valli Rally’ (pictured above) is an annual countryside trek. The event is usually held in September.
