Eye Examinations

At Ochil Eyes, we believe the eye examination is about more than just making sure you have the right prescription. We believe its the single most important part of your journey with us.

Contact Lenses

Many people believe that they cannot wear contact lenses because their prescription is too high or because they need multifocals. 

Some of our patients even believe they are too old to try contact lenses for the first time. We say you are never too old to try something for the first time.

I recently visited Ochil Eyes for the first time and cannot speak highly enough of the service I received. The staff were friendly and spent a lot of time with me, making sure I didn’t feel rushed into making a decision. The eye test was thorough and the optician took the time to talk me through each stage. My new glasses are brilliant and I was happy with the price. Thanks again.

For the last 10 years I have used franchise opticians. It was mid summer 2021 and due to CV19 I decided to go to a more local optician. The staff were friendly. They eye test was good taking the same time as the franchised shop. Only difference was there was no checks to the back of my eyes. All was good. Due to a sensory disorder I need the best varifocals and the widest frame available. I was shown an example and yep the frames were great. Then - A bit of paper was turned over to reveal a cost of £380. I said that I cannot justify that cost. I asked for my prescription to take elsewhere. I had glasses made from the Ochil Eyes Prescription with the highest quality varifocals. at £180. From the start there was a problem. For Diving - OK but a bit blury in the far distance. Seeing my car dash/ reading - OK. Now I began to have problems. I use subtitles on my TV due to tinnitus. The subtitles were blurry. Annoying me I went back to the Optometrist. The special measurements were rechecked and all was ok. I could read a number plate etc... 4 weeks later I'm still having problems with the subtitles. I return to the Optometrist. The prescription is checked again. The optometrist says "There are no details for intermediate sight test here. That is the problem." I went back to Ochil Eyes and spoke of the issues I was having. I was told, " it is best to get your glasses made where you get your eye test done". Not so friendly s before. Now I recall I got the print out of my prescription after I rejected the overpriced glasses. So either the intermediate sight test was not done or not included. One or the other. Now 14 months later, with straining to read subtitles my vision has greatly deteriorated in reading & the subtitles & I need to enlarge my PC screen or I cannot see well enough. Glades from incomplete prescriptions damages ones eyesight. I need a new eye exam, somewhere else & will get the same place to make up my varifocals as,as advised by O.E. Having a test and glasses mage up from elsewhere, means that i'm in the situation that I have NO right of redress. Any typos -It is because my vision has deteriorated so fast I'm struggling to see. I won't be back there again. Use CTR and + to enlarge PC screen text and CTR and - to reduce screen text and CTR and 0 to bring the screen text back to standard. Fed up of doing this but now I can't read text on my smartphone so I must buy new glades. Not happy !

After years of taking my daughter to a corporate opticians and not having quite the personal touch, we visited ochil eyes. Sam was very friendly and helpful in the shop and Richard was absolutely fantastic with my daughter! They have a great range of glasses for children to choose from! Definitely worth visiting for a family as my husband has also been checked there for years and praises the practice after every visit and loves the range of glasses for men, Susie is great at getting it right for help choosing your new frame!

Excellent, friendly, professional service from Ochil Eyes . I was going to a Retail chain company before this, I could give you a list of the poor service I received from the Retail Chain Company. I can recommend Ochil Eyes I would not go anywhere else.

First stop,last stop for eye care. I like most people went to 'default' specsavers. The last glasses I got from them were blurred on the distance vision. I had decided on varifocals for my job as an Out of Hours driver, so one pair would suit all. I mentioned to them about the blurr and was retested, but given the same result. After struggling on for about two years, I thought to try my local optician Ochil Eyes. The best decision ever. After my appointment I was told that the glasses I had from specsavers were two and a half times stronger than I needed , so it was no wonder I was having problems. I got my first glasses from Ochil Eyes and couldn't believe the difference, my eye site was perfect, it was amazing. I now love wearing glasses. Samantha ( Sam) the practice manager travels every day from Perth to run the shop. She and Susy are amazing, and help in every way possible so that you get the result you want. They are both very experienced, friendly and professional. The optician? Richard Hay, well he is amazing, in my opinion, perfect result every time. I would never go anywhere else, even if I lived 100m miles away, I would always return to Ochil Eyes. By the way, Susy is also an amazing artist, and specialises in pet portraits, so if you want your little dog, cat bunny, whatever, then look no further than Susy. @SusyNimmoArt · Artist

Personally my experience at Ochil eyes has been fab. The staff are all so friendly and they made it such a fun and easy experience to get my glasses. My new glasses are very high quality and I would definitely go again for my next eye test 👓

Wonderful place, magical selection of glasses. I look forward to going every time, not just so I can read the bottom line on the eye chart.
