Yes, this service is being offered by Lawrence and Mayo, the premium optical retailer of the country at some localities of the city. “The van came at our doorsteps and we (my spouse and myself) had a thorough eye check-up done. The optometrist who attended us was extremely helpful and cooperative,” says Mr. Tapan Saha, a resident of Salt Lake. “Really a unique concept and very helpful for senior citizens like us,” he added.

It is the first time in the country that a comprehensive eye care services are being offered to the customers at their doorstep. While this service has already been launched in Kolkata, the city where the famed Company started its journey 140 years back.

Mr. Bagchi is all praise for the services. “Keep up the good work, Lawrence and Mayo,” he says. “It has been a great benefit to each and every member of my family.
