Testimonials

2 months ago
I have been wearing contact lenses for more than 40 years, and have just experienced the best service and best results for assessment and fitting new lenses in all this time from Andrew Baird. I was recently turned away from a major high street chemist and optician who decided they could not meet my needs and was fortunate enough to find Baird Optometrists to do the job. I felt welcomed and respected by all the staff I had contact with. The high tech equipment was used with first class professional skill to provide me with excellent sight and comfort. Don't hesitate to give them a try!

I visited whilst on holiday in Callander. I felt that I had something in my left eye which turned out to be a small swelling under the eyelid. Fiona was very kind and professional and after deciding what she thought it was contacted another optometrist for confirmation sending photos. The whole experience was exceptional and I was seen promptly.

I try to be mindful of getting the health of my eyeballs checked at least annually, this year it made a difference. I had been struggling to focus for a few months at least, therefore, I made an appointment. Baird opticians were their usual friendly professional selves. I am now enjoying a pair of close work glasses that allow me to enjoy reading again. Thank you for your care and attention and will look forward to a new style from your extensive range.
