Say Hello To Our Refurbished Practice

If you have visited our Bothwell or Lesmahagow practices recently (or even just passed the window) you will have noticed we have now completed our refurbishments. We are thrilled with the makeover and we have been getting plenty of compliments and positive feedback from our patients, which we truly appreciate! We wanted to invest in providing person centred eyecare with the most advanced equipment as well as extensive new ranges of frames and contact lenses. We look forward to welcoming new and existing patients to our new and improved practice.

Congratulations to Dr Scott Mackie and Dr Roisin Mackie

Our consultant opticians for each of our practices have been awarded a NHS Glaucoma qualification to manage hospital patients in the community. NHS Lanarkshire is sending 500 patients to ease the backlog at the hospitals. Roisin and Scott are only two of the five opticians in South Lanarkshire who have the NESGAT qualification.

New Service Alert – We Now Offer a Hearing Assessment

We have recently opened a new hearing clinic in our Bothwell practice every Thursday morning and in our Lesmahagow practice every Thursday afternoon. Initial hearing assessments are FREE and every second week we run a wax removal service using the newest technique micro suction which is painless and the results are very effective . These treatments have proven very popular so please phone each practice to book an appointment for yourself or a family member and we will get you in the diary for 2023.

Our Charity Trip to Cambodia 

We sent 2000 pairs of recycled spectacles to HMP Barlinnie’s Right to Sight where prisoners sort and grade the spectacles. These are then sent to Cambodia in preparation for our clinic in July this year – where both Dr Scott Mackie and Dr Roisin Mackie will be assisting in surgery and screening of patients.
