Eye Casualty

Mackie Opticians are registered as Independent Prescribers and treat all casualty patients as first port of call. 

You cannot attend a GP or Hospital with an eye condition.  As part of Lanarkshire LENS scheme we diagnose and treat eye emergencies and/or triage to the Ophthalmology at the local hospitals (Monklands, Wishaw General or Hairmyres).

We accept referrals from Pharmacy, GPs and the General Public irrespective if they are a previous patient of ours. Furthermore we offer clinics every day (excl Sunday), including Sat and Tue/Wed late night clinics.

We also work with specialist providers to offer patients another alternative to NHS clinics for a faster pathway or procedures not generally available on the NHS including refractive surgery.

Drs Scott and Roisin Mackie will discuss these alternative pathways to you if appropriate.
