Coronavirus Update

As an essential healthcare service, all opticians continue to provide essential eyecare with appointments prioritised to ensure those in-need are seen in a timely manner.

Due to the suspension of routine eyecare during the initial lockdown periods we do have a significant backlog of patients overdue their eye examinations and as a result the waiting time for routine appointments is around 3-4 weeks.

Anyone with any concerns about their eye health or vision should telephone their last optician visited.  Initial consultations may be by telephone or video with face-to-face arranged if required. 

Despite recent relaxations (March'22), as an NHS Scotland healthcare provider we are still required to minimise the number of people in our practice.  Entry to our practice is by pre-arranged appointment only, face coverings must also be worn.  Our staff have been fully trained in revised procedures with the appropriate PPE worn when required.  Additional hygiene measures and frame sterilisers have also been introduced.

Routine appointments can be booked online or by telephoning the practice on 01738 622026.  Non-routine appointments can only be booked by telephone as we need to understand your symptoms to ensure the appropriate time is allocated.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation. 


Kind regards,

The team at Henderson's
