Investment pays off.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

JENNY BURDEN, receptionist at Derek Casey Opticians, proudly shows off one of the Sunderland independent's investments, the Briot Silver+ technology lens edger. The new single unit combines a 4D tracer, blocker, edger, automatic groover and polishing technology. "We do most of own glazing," said Ms Burden, "usually about 10-25 jobs a day, but more if we are busy. This new Briot is much fast and more accurate, especially with the shape tracing. We used to have to do our supra glazing by hand and this is much better."
