I had a great experience with Baird in Dunblane when I ordered both my prescription and cycling glasses. From the eye test to the delivery of the glasses there was a great attention to detail and care for the customer. The whole team spent a fair amount of time to find the right solution and frame for my needs, definitely recommended.

My experience with Bairds was wonderful. The team are so friendly and professional and the shop itself has a really brilliantly curated selection of glasses, including many unusual frames which are hard to find elsewhere. I was travelling when I saw the frames I wanted in Bairds, and they were able to fit the frames and post them onto me once my lenses had been made. The turnaround was extremely quick and I couldn't be happier with my glasses. 10/10 for service and price - I will be returning for sure!
