Expert Eye Care in Partick
We offer a comprehensive range of services and stock a wide range of frames that are regularly updated. Our styles suit all budgets and we use simple, complete pricing – which includes single vision lenses. We stock independent brands and well known designers.
Eye Examinations – we believe in taking time to discuss any concerns you may have and tailoring the exam to suit your needs. We book a relaxed 40 minutes for each appointment so that even the most complex patients can be looked after.
Generally all examinations will involve a thorough check of your eye health using the most up to date equipment – we use a Keeler Symphony Slit Lamp, Volk Lens Biomicroscopy and a Topcon Fundus camera to image your retina. We will then assess your vision and eye muscle balance – measuring whether or not you require a corrective prescription. Additional tests such as measuring your field of vision and eye pressure may also be required. The results of your examination will be explained and appropriate recommendations made.
Contact Lenses – we offer all major contact lens brands and also have specialist knowledge of less common lenses such as Rigid Gas Permeable(RGP) lenses.
Contact lenses are available at competitive prices with home delivery and Direct Debit payment options. If you are new to contact lenses we offer a free trial to ensure you are suitable.
Acute Eye Problems – our optometrist Martin has completed an additional qualification to become an Independent Prescriber. This means he can diagnose and treat many common eye conditions, which would otherwise require a referral to hospital. If you have any issue concerning your eyes, you could save yourself a long wait in A+E if you visit O’Callaghan Opticians instead!
Dry Eye Clinic – having previously worked at Caledonian University Vision Centre, Martin has great experience in managing dry eye and associated conditions such as blepharitis and meibomium gland dysfunction.
We offer dry eye specific examinations and can structure a management plan to suit your individual needs. We can provide prescription only medical treatment if required.
First time here and was very impressed. Staff were very welcoming and Martin was just excellent!!
Apart from first class eye examination, he took the time to go through other problems I had with my eyes and gave me very good advice on how to deal with them.
"Absolutely fantastic opticians. I had an emergency appointment a few weeks ago and they took really good care of me and assured me that my vision is safe and I know I'm in safe hands with them. Every member of staff is friendly and knowledgeable and I honestly don't know what I'd have done without them in these past few months."
Lovely people and nice and relaxed service! Can't recommend enough! Really stylish glasses at a good price too compared to other places.
A Spectacle MOT is suggested every 6 months, to make sure they stay in tip top condition. We can straighten, tighten and even give them a deep clean with an ultrasonic bath! So if you are in the West End why not pop in and see us.
