Covid-19 Info

To all our Patients,

We are fully open!  

Following the Scottish Government lifting of most of the remaining restrictions on 9th Aug 2021 I am pleased to say that all our branches remain open with our usual hours.

We have been issued with separate guidance specific to healthcare that we will continue to follow, this guidance means that as previously all visits to our branches are by appointment only.

If you have any eye related issues please give us a phone so we can discuss these with you.

In addition to our regular services we are also offering remote consultations and advice where appropriate, don't hesitate to ask if you need us.

The pandemic has been extremely disruptive to normal practice. 

We are currently trying to identify all patients with a clinical need to be seen, however if you believe that you were being monitored for any condition (for example raised eye pressure) please contact us to discuss this.


Best wishes to you all, 

Iain Pentland

Partner and IP Optometrist.
