New Premises


We have now moved to 15 Foundry loan, Larbert from 242 main street, Stenhousemuir. We have been moving over the past week or so and would like to thank you for your patience as we get things sorted in our new practice.


The move was needed post-covid and I have installed AIR UV filters to provide a clean air space in both practices.


This also gives us more chance to increase the range of frames and add new equipment to provide enhanced eye-care services.

I would like to thank all my patients that visited 242 Main street for supporting me and look forward to seeing you in the new practice with much more space!!

As always, my priority is to look after the health of your eyes and to give you the best advice regarding your eye-care and eye-wear options.


Whether it be budget or bespoke,spectacles or contact lenses we want to make sure you are looked after.

Everyone is entitled to a free NHS eye exam in Scotland and I carry out retinal photography on everyone too.

Kind regards

I qualified as an optometrist in 1997 and have worked in hospital eyecare  and  as a locum optometrist. In  2016 I decided to open my own practice in Stenhousemuir to offer something different - unrushed , bespoke , professional eyecare and a wide range of eyewear. Local patients responded to this personal approach and I was able to open a sister practice in Dollar in 2018. I am currently studying a post graduate medical retina course and an independent prescribing course. Likes - music, dogs. Wears - varifocals

Sharon : I have known Sharon for over 20 years - she has been an optical manager  longer! She has vast experience in helping you choose the perfect frame for your style and is exceptional at making sure you have the correct lenses for your lifestyle and budget. Likes - running .
