Mrs Katleen Keenan

Can’t recommend Mackie Opticians highly enough. I have purchased 2 pairs of prescription glasses over the last 18 months and was given great sound advice and have such confidence in the team. The girls are fabulous and always honest when I’m picking frames and tell me if they suit my face or not.

Mrs Sandra Geddes

Perhaps the most valuable thing that Dr Mackie has provided me with is the unwavering support that allows me to speak out for myself today. I now have the confidence and self-assured nature to speak up when I’m struggling with my vision.’
