Enjoy the Experience

There is no need to sit frustrated in noisy waiting rooms for long periods of time, or feel pressurised trying on glasses surrounded by lots of other people.

Your eyes deserve the best quality care, but not only that – your choice of eyewear can have a huge impact on how confident you feel too.

At McConnachie Eyecare we put our customers first, with no commissions and no KPIs to be met.
