Free Eye Examination

In Scotland, adults are normally entitled to a FREE eye examination under the NHS once every two years. However, your optometrist may specify an annual examination for glaucoma patients, over 40's with a family history of glaucoma, diabetics or over 60's. Children are normally seen once a year.

We take pride in offering a fully comprehensive examination. Retinal photography and fields screening is included as standard.

Our clinic is diary based to ensure plenty of time for each patient and to minimise any delays. Unlike some larger practices, we do not take 'walk ins' unless there is a free space available at the time.

To arrange an appointment, please call us on (01382) 221333 or request a time online

We also offer a range of premium services outwith the NHS including optical coherence tomography (OCT), slit lamp photography and private/vocational eye examinations. Please contact us for more details.

We offer eyewear for all budgets and tastes. Our philosophy is to offer consistent and superior quality across all price brackets. We also strive to offer something a bit different, so our focus is less on 'mass market' designer brands and more towards quality and exclusivity.

Our range includes:
  • Quality manufacturers such as Tom Davies, Rodenstock and Walter & Herbert.
  • Cutting-edge styles from continental designers such as Woow and Inface.
  • Ultralight Silhouette titanium rimless.
  • A wide selection of mid-range eyewear.
  • Budget frames from only £35.

We even offer a bespoke service where the frames are customed designed and hand-made especially for you! Read more about this facility here

Our lens prices are very competitive, and we will always give you honest advice about your options. We're not tied to any one supplier, and our staff are under no pressure to dispense the most expensive products. If you're looking around and have seen a better deal elsewhere, please let us know because we may be able to match it.

We have an on-site lab with modern glazing technology so we can offer fast delivery times, even on rimless. Many of our competitors no longer offer this service. Most single vision spectacles without any additional lens treatments can be made up the same day if required. Coated lenses or bifocals normally take just a few working days, and varifocals about a week.

Contact Lenses

We can supply a full range of contact lenses, the most popular being fortnightly or daily lenses. However, we can also provide more specialised solutions such as astigmatic, multifocal or kerataconic lenses. We also fit 'ortho-k' lenses, where the contact lens is worn overnight allowing clear vision without lenses the next day.

Our preference is for well-known and trusted manufacturers such as Alcon and Johnson & Johnson. We don't have an "own label" range.
