2021 Festive Update from Mackie Opticians

Opening Hours

Throughout the pandemic we have worked 6 days per week – so we are now on our festive break which runs through until Tuesday 4th January 2022.

Eye Casualty

If you require eye casualty between these dates, please either contact other opticians within Lanarkshire who are open and have an IP or LENS optometrist in attendance, or alternatively you can call NHS 24.

Chosen Charity

Mackie Opticians is supporting Medecins Sans Frontieres, who are Doctors Without Borders, this year as we feel the pandemic could impact this vulnerable sector of our society even more than previous. Please visit their website to see what inspiring work they do or if you want to donate to their fundraising.


As conditions around the country continue to change, we’d like to reassure you that as an essential NHS service, we will continue to remain open for routine, essential and urgent eyecare including spectacles, contact lenses and eye casualty.

To make an appointment for when we reopen after the festive break, you can book online via our website or call your clinic direct; Lesmahagow on 01555 893929 or Bothwell  on 01698 854858.

A Final Festive Message

Going forward, we look forward to continuing to help administer the COVID vaccine and boosters.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our patients a restful festive season and best wishes for a promising 2022.
