We were delighted to welcome Nicki to the practice to accept a cheque on behalf of Guide Dogs. We would like to thank all our generous patients for their support, Ross for bringing the gorgeous Nicki in and Jean for accepting the cheque. We will continue helping to sponsor a puppy and collecting for this very important charity.
Do you go to your optician as the first port of call when you have an eye problem? We have the education, training and equipment to help – and the knowledge to refer you on if that’s required. If you have any worries about your eyes or eyesight ring 01382 224620 to book an appointment. 50% of all sight loss in Scotland is avoidable. Don’t take any chances with your precious sight.
We think Joseph looks great (and a little cheeky!) in his new glasses. We are open over the Christmas holidays so bring your children in to have their eyes examined. We make the examinations fun and afterwards you can be sure that either your children don’t need glasses. or if they do they will be wearing frames that suit them and are comfortable. Children may not realise that there is anything wrong with their eyes and if there is it can hold them back educationally and socially. You want the very best for your children so make sure they can see well.
We also have a dedicated children’s play area so our young patients love coming. Ring 01382 224620 to book an appointment.
Smokers are three to four times as likely to go blind with macular degeneration (the largest cause of blindness in Scotland) than non-smokers, and smoking is also a risk factor for cataracts and dry eye syndrome. There is so much help available to help you stop- for the sake of your eyesight take advantage of it.
