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 Eyecare 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 care about our environment and are comitted to ethical procedures and sourcing. One of our new brands, neubau eyewear, is dedicated to style and quality going hand in hand with setting high environmental standards. They use naturalIPX, a highly developed eco-friendly material, in the manufacture of their frames.
We are also very excited to be stocking the frames from a young and dynamic Edinburgh company called Hemp Eyewear. As the name suggests, they manufacture their frames from hemp. Hemp is one of the most renewable, eco friendly and diverse resources grown. Their frames are pretty cool too.
There is also a large children’s selection, ranging from free to £60. Kids of all ages will find what they want from bright, fun frames to the latest in cool design. Added with the personal attention of our team, children will actually enjoy their eye care.
Drop in and try our frames, our friendly staff can advise you on style, face shape and frame size and type. Also, look out for our regular “Open Days” when we will have independent style consultants in store to give free advice.

Whatever your activity we have a solution for you.
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.
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 !!!
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.

I want to put on record my sincere thanks to the team in Auchterarder. When I advised the practice of a change in vision in one eye they immediately explained to me, and took me through, the triage process. This resulted in a vision test the next day and was followed immediately by an unscheduled appointment with the optician, Scott. I am grateful to Scott, not only for fitting me in at extremely short notice, but for his diligent work which resulted in a referral to hospital leading to treatment later the same day. The speed with which I was treated in hospital would not have been possible without the prompt care, flexibility and professionalism of the team who looked after me in Auchterarder. I am extremely grateful not only to Erskine Eyecare but also the NHS team who treated me.
When I got Trigeminal Neuralgia one of the first things to change was my left tear ducts stopped working. Having had contacts for years I had to go back to glasses, I hated them. 7 yrs later Erskine Eyecare has found contacts I can wear. This is why shopping local is best. Proper customer care.
