Welcome to truly Independent eye examinations and contact lenses in Falkirk
I qualified as an Optometrist / Ophthalmic Optician in 1996 and have over 20 years experience all over Scotland . I have worked in Hospital optometry , independent practice and high street practice.
I have always stayed in the Falkirk area and I decided in 2016 to open my first (and only) practice in Stenhousemuir,Falkirk.
I carry out all my eye exams professionally and in a relaxed manner. All my patients will have plenty time to have their eye exam , a contact lens consultation and/or choose spectacles - whatever they prefer. Childrens eye exam's are also avaialble and every eye examination is given the same level of professional care and attention.
All patients are entitled to a FREE NHS funded eye exam in Scotland and all my examinations are carried out in a thoroughly professional manner above and beyond the minimum standards required by the NHS audit. All my equipment is also NHS audited to their specific standards, so you can be sure of a detailed examination.
The benefit of being a true independent optometrist and optician, is that I have access to all major spectacle frame suppliers and contact lens suppliers. I have over 200 frames in stock for you to try from budget spectacle frames to designer spectacle frames.
I have extensive contact lens experience in fitting : daily contact lenses , monthly contact lenses, toric contact lenses, varifocal contact lenses and gas permeable contact lenses.
I teach my new contact lens patients how to insert and remove lenses safely and supply all safety information before a trial of the lenses.
I do things differently - I take all the measurements myself for new spectacles.
I do all the clinical procedures : pressures, visual field checks etc that elsewhere are carried out by "optical assistants".
You will see the difference with eyecare from me.
