INFORMATION REGARDING CORONAVIRUS COVID-19

As of Monday 23rd March 2020, Optometrists in Scotland will no longer see you for any routine appointments. This includes both routine eye exams and contact lens check ups and is in line with the latest Government and NHS guidelines. As eye care professionals, this is a very difficult decision to comply with, however, patient and employee safety is always our main priority and it is necessary at this time.

We are still here for you though - please don't be stuck.

We will continue to provide emergency and essential eye care. However, please DO NOT come to the Practice. To access this service, please call us (01592 751460) and Mrs Rach will triage you before deciding the best course of action.

Opticians are still the first port of call for eye emergencies and we aim to keep it this way, particularly during these difficult times. The NHS is under a lot of a strain so please help them to help you by calling us with any ocular emergencies.

If you have broken your glasses, lost your glasses, or lost, damaged or run out of contact lenses, please call us and we will advise you of what to do.

We will be working with a locked door, appointment only policy so it is essential that you contact us if you need us. We will not open the door unless you have an appointment.
