Measuring and correcting your eyesight to it’s full potential is only part of a regular thorough eye examination which monitors the health of your eyes and consequently your overall well being.
Some common signs of vision problems are obvious such as headaches or eyestrain. However many potentially sight threatening diseases do not show any early symptoms. Conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts and diabetes.These can all be detected by regular eye examinations.
We use state of the art equipment to monitor the health of your eyes. Retinal Photography gives us a digital image of your eye which can be stored and used to monitor your eye’s health at future visits.
All our optometrists are not only qualified and GOC registered but also are fully accredited to provide Locally Enhanced Community eyecare, to assist our GP and Hospital Eye Service colleagues.
Our appointment schedule provides sufficient time for advice to be given about your eyes and for any questions you may have to be fully answered. Our patients have told us how important this time is and how much reassurance it provides.
At Erskine eyewear we offer quality eyewear to suit our broad range of customer’s tastes. From stylish designer wear to classic styles to functional frames and a children’s selection we have something for everyone.

We are all exposed to harmful UV radiation from the sun, whether it is sunny or cloudy. The effects of UV on skin are well understood but the ocular risks of sun exposure and the need for eye protection is less well known.
80% of our lifetime exposure to UV happens before the age of 20 as children spend so much more time outdoors and the clarity of the lens in a young eye allows more UV light to penetrate to the retina than the lens of an adult.
Protecting yourself and your children from the effects of UV rays is easy - just by wearing sunglasses offering 100% UV protection.
We stock a wide range of sunglasses, for all budgets, many of which can be glazed with your prescription if required, even sporty wrap around styles.
We invite you, our customer, to upload pictures of you wearing your Erskine eyewear glasses in exotic, unusual or just silly places, or just looking good in your eyewear, to our Facebook page. Be as creative and crazy as you like. Take pictures with your phone, your tablet or camera.
Your images must be a portrait shaped jpg of no more than 2MB.
Images will be voted on by our Facebook followers and the winner will receive an amazing prize.

I had the fortunate experience of being up in Dunblane recently, and got full on VIP treatment at Erskine Eyecare. My glasses arrived in London almost as quickly as I did. Great staff, fantastic range of specs and excellent service. Now I look like a writer !!! Lisa Azarmi
Following a visit to your practice yesterday, I would simply like to say that the service, care and attention to detail has been nothing short of excellent. One is always warmly welcomed by all the staff when entering the practice and all matters are dealt with efficiently and in a caring way. Iain and Noelle Stothard
My usually thorough eye test was enhanced by having a retinal scan which Laura detected a lesion. I was promptly referred to the eye clinic at the hospital and was seen by an ophthalmologist. I was lucky that it was nothing serious. I am now regularly reviewed at Erskine Eyecare to make sure that all is stable. The equipment and their expertise allows me to be confident that I am getting the best care. Alison
I started using Erskine eyecare recently, when I needed a new eye test. I must say they are a very friendly practice and the level of professionalism displayed, during the most comprehensive eye test I have ever had, was extremely reassuring. The choice of frames is great too, Iain
