In 2012, Euan Simpson qualified as an IP Optometrist, meaning he can prescribe the full range of drugs required to treat eye disease and acute eye conditions. Prescriptions are free, the same as from your GP or Dentist.
In 2015, Siobhan Simpson, principal optometrist at the East Kilbride practice qualified as an IP Optometrist.
You should consult the Optometrist before going to the Doctor, as we can thoroughly examine your eyes and begin treatment immediately or refer you to the Hospital Eye Department or GP surgery. We work closely with all the local GPs and with the Ophthalmologists at Hairmyres and Wishaw General.
Simpson Opticians is part of the LENS scheme, operating an Eye Casualty service. We will always fit you in to see the Optometrist, in an Emergency, and this too is a FREE NHS service.
To make an emergency appointment please contact us on 01698 882622 or 01355 220977 as soon as possible.
