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 late night clinics either in person or virtual appointments.

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.
