About

As an independent practice we have been present In Morningside since 1966. We are committed to providing a friendly, personal eye care service for all of the family. We provide the highest level of eye care utilising the very latest technology in order to offer a solution for any optical requirement.

Being an independent practice, we have been able to do things differently. We can fine tune each appointment to each patient’s individual needs. We can spend time with our patients to ascertain the best possible option, be it Spectacles, contact lenses, treatment or onward referral.

We don’t push the most expensive option. We won’t confuse you with offers. We will however help you find the most appropriate solution for all your eyesight needs.

We only stock the highest quality frames and lenses and have options for every budget. We have a large range of designer frames from Silhouette, Gant, Guess and Elle as well as many others.

We care passionately about our patients, and have gained a strong reputation for delivering a very high standard of service and friendly family eye care. Many of our patients have been with us over 40 years.

We believe in a tailored approach that lets patients access all the advantages of the latest technology, while being treated with care and consideration. We believe in doing things differently. We have introduced only the most up to date technology into our practice. We have been recognised as one of the top five practices in the UK for the technology we have incorporated into our eye exam.

We offer 3D-OCT Ocular Coherence Tomography

This enables us to scan your retina and detect any early signs of conditions like macular degeneration, glaucoma and can also help us monitor changes in many eye conditions associated with diabetes, corneal disorders and even floaters. The significance of detecting such conditions at an early stage means less chance of your eyesight being permanently affected.

In addition to this we also have a Digital Imaging Slit lamp. This enables us to take detailed images of the surface of the eye and has been vital in allowing us to diagnosis and monitor many eye conditions such as Dry Eye , Blepharitis and Conjunctivitis and to track the effectiveness of any treatment.

We would recommend you to have an OCT scan

  • If you are over 60
  • If you are over 40 and shortsighted
  • If you have high blood pressure
  • If you have diabetes
  • If you have any retinal abnormalities
  • If there is any family history of eye problems
