About Us

We’ve been serving Scotland’s eyes since 1962, and we pride ourselves on our long-held tradition of excellent customer service and our forward-thinking commitment to providing the very latest optical technology.

Based at Cumbernauld, Elgin, Kilsyth, Buckie and Forres, each of our five practices offer comprehensive eye examinations and stock a huge range of designer glasses, designer sunglasses . Many of our team have been working with us for decades, and are always on hand to offer expert advice on your eye health and eyewear to suit your lifestyle.

As part of our dedication to innovation, all of our practices have been recently refurbished, and we’ve invested in state-of-the-art OCT scanners and an Optomap machine which enable us to offer you one of the most comprehensive eye tests in the country.

For over half a century the family-run McLachlan and Dawson Opticians has remained staunchly independent, striving to deliver the best possible eye care service to our patients and their families. Now led by Edith McLachlan, we look forward to continuing to serve your visual needs well into the future.
