From Our Website

Dr Roisin Mackie is a specialist in paediatrics working at Royal Hospital for Children, Glasgow. Dr Scott Mackie is a specialist in eye diseases and is a Fellowship examiner which is the highest qualification for the College of Optometrists. Each has several post graduate qualifications in Low Vision and Independent Prescribing. Our Optical Stylists will give you the the correct advice on all aspects of patient care; from explanation of the eye examination to frame and lens selection. Our practices are multi award winning offering person centred eyecare.


At Mackie Eyecare we have a budget to suit all, from our constant sale stand to our range of high street and niche designer brands of spectacles. Each persons eyes are different and we will explain the choice of lenses and any extra options which will benefit you. These lenses are up to 40% thinner than conventional glass or plastic lenses. They offer improved cosmetic appearance, are lighter to wear and provide enhanced visual clarity (less side distortion). They usually also incorporate a reflection-free coating.


Visual ability is an important consideration when taking part in any sporting activity. Visual safety, which will depend on the type of sport which you are undertaking, is also paramount to avoid injury. If you are already wearing either spectacles or contact lenses are they suitable for your particular sporting activity? In addition, you may have been experiencing poor vision, headaches or colour perception problems while taking part in sport. A full eye examination will offer advice on the best practical solution for your visual requirement in relation to comfort and safety when playing your preferred sporting activities.
