Testimonials

Excellent service - extremely professional. I also paid extra for the 3D scan of my eyes and it was well worth it because a problem was discovered. An appointment at the hospital Eye Clinic was recommended and with Fiona’s assistance my appointment came through very quickly. No hard sales push for the frames and a very pleasant experience all round. Would highly recommend. Felt very happy and safe with the covid precautions too. The staff were all so pleasant and friendly.

Outstanding experience at Baird Optometrist in Dunblane which is light,spacious and modern with an excellent range of glasses. Fiona conducted my eye test with the utmost professionalism to the highest of standards.I received very helpful guidance when choosing new glasses and was equally helpfully advised about a good range of lenses .This made choosing glasses straightforward.My glasses arrived quickly and were fitted and adjusted on the same day. I am delighted with them and am very pleased with the difference that wearing them has made to my vision. I would very highly recommend Baird Optometrist for excellent eye care and lovely staff .
