Welcome to Independent eyecare
I qualified as an Optometrist 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.
I carry out all my consultations 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.
The benefit of being a true independent optometrist is that I have access to all major frame and contact lens suppliers. I have over 200 frames in stock for you to try from budget frames to designer frames. My frame prices start from £19 / £free
I carry out contact lens consultations including standard single vision, to specialist toric and varifocal 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.
