Excellent service from start to finish. The Dunblane practice is welcoming and the staff gave me a very high standard of service. The optician Fiona, gave me excellent guidance and advice about the reduction in my eyesight. I got advised and fitted with a lovely pair of glasses from the fantastic range they have available. I highly recommend Andrew Baird Optometrist. Thanks again.

Having had my eyes tested only 4 weeks earlier in Stirling and received spectacles which were of no use to me, I decided to stay local and have my eyes tested again at Andrew Baird Optometrist, Callander. The service I received was second to none and I really appreciated the calm, quiet and professional atmosphere. I was not pressured into purchasing frames - in fact I was offered new lenses in my own frames. Only a week later I collected my spectacles with new lenses, they were fitted to me and the prescription is perfect. I am delighted and highly recommend this Optometrist.
