We took a call today (13/7) from a lady looking to book an appointment…

She’d gotten her eyes tested at the place she usually goes to but had noticed a bit of an attitude from the gentleman that was testing her because she hadn’t bought her current glasses from them, she was then made to feel very guilty because she indicated that she wouldn’t be buying her next pair from them either due to the expense.

YOUR eye test is paid for on YOUR behalf by the Scottish Government and you’re under no more obligation to buy glasses from the place that tests than you are to buy a car from a showroom because you enquired about the price…

“Following an eye test, your ophthalmic practitioner is legally required to give you your optical prescription…You should never feel obliged to buy glasses from the place where you had your eye test. Shop around for the best value and only buy glasses or contact lenses when you’re happy with the product and cost”


Please don’t think we’re saying ” Don’t buy glasses from anyone else, only buy from us”, we’re saying the same thing we tell people at appointments “Don’t settle for a frame you don’t love”, it’s going to be on your face, it’s the 1st thing people see when they look at you, is an extension of your personality and is every bit as important as the clothes you wear.

Even if you book an appointment with us you’re under no obligation to buy, if you don’t see something you love from the brands we carry (we like to think that we’ve got something for all tastes and budgets though), tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll source it for you….
