Ferrier & MacKinnon Optometrists

Good morning!

As you know, all opticians across Scotland have only been permitted to see Emergency and Essential appointments. This includes Emergency and Essential dispensing for glasses 👓

From today, we will be able to 'upscale' our work. In practical terms, this means that routine appointments are still suspended.

Our practices are open by appointment only (as per demand), so when you call you'll be put through to our Dunfermline practice which is currently staffed 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday. We'll triage your symptoms and book you an appointment where appropriate. Please do not attend the practices without an appointment.

We would again like to thank all our friends, staff and customers. We can't wait to see you all soon ☺️

Hi everyone! 👋

While we are open for telephone advice, this is a reminder that we can still only see emergency and essential eye care for the timebeing.

We STRONGLY recommend you don't attend any of our practices without an appointment.

Call your local practice to have your call forwarded to our Dunfermline 'hub', where we will triage any symptoms and organise a phone consultation with our optometrist in the first instance.

If our optometrist feels that you need further clinical assessment, they will organise a face-to-face appointment (with appropriate PPE) at your practice.

If you’re concerned about your eyesight for driving, please call us and we’ll do what we can to help.

Reminder: the best way to test your eyesight for driving is with a routine eye test.. 😉

We can note you down for a routine test once lockdown has been lifted.
