We'll give you a good Scottish welcome....

    Established October 1984

Graham Henderson:


bullet My commitment to patients is at the heart of my practice.


bullet We are fully committed to providing our patients with a comprehensive eye examination, fulfilling if not exceeding the requirements of the Scottish NHS eye examination.


bullet We allow adult patients at least 30 minutes per eye examination appointment, explain our findings, answer questions, provide copies of their prescription after the eye examination, give advice on frame and lens options without sales pressure, explain and clarify pricing, explain procedures carried out and provide a locally based long-term follow up for any issues arising, and an adjustment/repair service afterwards. 


bullet We supply contact lenses in accordance with the current legislation and encourage patients to follow our recommendations on health and hygiene.  As independent optometrists, we are able to supply any lenses.


bullet We continually invest large sums of money in new and innovative equipment for the benefit of patients, something I feel is especially important given the distance from eye hospitals.


bullet We train our team to assist patients not only in the selection of appropriate eyewear but also to answer some common concerns and provide information about eye conditions.


bullet Our reception team are trained to carry out a wide range of basic repairs and adjustments.


bullet As an independent practice we aim to provide excellent eyecare and aftercare, and provide continuous training for our team.  We learn by experience as well, changing procedures to benefit the patient, and listening to patients' suggestions and requests.


bullet We feel a great loyalty to our local area and continue to provide the best service we possibly can.
