Dresden on the road

May we introduce our ‘Anhänger’? It’s German for ‘trailer’. We know there are a lot of frustrated glasses-wearers all around Australia. This clever workshop on wheels is our way of helping answer the call.

The trailer’s been beautifully designed to open up and bring a full optometry and on-the-spot glasses service to events, workplaces and neighbourhoods.

Helping those in need

We were recently on the road taking eye testing and high-quality glasses directly to those in need. We teamed up with Vision Australia to offer eye tests and specs to locals who had previously been unable to access the NSW Spectacles Program. The week-long pilot covered Port Macquarie, Kempsey, Macksville and Nambucca Heads, areas where there is the highest unmet need. Program Coordinator, Jennelle Schroder says “Dresden’s community conscious approach to vision correction aligns with Vision Australia’s own focus on providing the tools people need to access independence, education and employment”.
