Clear vision is Ryder Babcock’s passion and he loves supporting patients to see more clearly. In his view, Victoria Gardens is a centre with a big heart, and it’s the community that makes it tick.
Ryder loves getting to know the locals at Victoria Gardens and says “I have gotten to know many of our customers by name. They always have a friendly smile to give and a wave if they’re just walking by” says Ryder.
He is inspired by his work “I love the opportunity to help people see and feel their best” and Ryder’s commitment to his patients is clear. “Assisting patients with their vision is a passion of mine” he adds.
Ryder has been working at the Victoria Gardens’ OPSM since 2017, “It has been amazing working in the same store for five years. The centre isn’t that big, but it has a big heart” he observes.
Victoria Gardens is also a community of shop owners, and Ryder values the friendships and connections with other retailers. “Most staff at other retailers know us well” he says.
In his time at Victoria Gardens Ryder has enjoyed watching the centre refurbishment and seeing new stores open. ““The centre has changed quite a lot since I first started working here. It’s been exciting to see the centre evolve into something great where people really want to come visit.”
