14 April 2020We're Still Here!
I certainly hope you are all staying safe and keeping well during this time. Many of you will be missing your annual eye examination, but be assured that once things are back to normal it will be scheduled as soon as possible. If you have any eye related concerns don't hesitate to call for advice. Optometrists are still your first port of call for anything eye related.
Very best wishes to you all.
Ann McBay, Principal Optometrist

15 March 2020COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Important Information
At McBay Mobile Opticians the health of our patients and their families is of paramount importance.
Optometrists have been advised by the Scottish Government that, due to Scotland moving into the “Delay” phase of COVID-19 management we are to cease providing domiciliary (home) visits for routine eye care services with immediate effect. This is to protect those individuals from infection who are in the high risk categories.
If you have an appointment booked we will be contacting you shortly by telephone.
If you are due for an eye examination or have received a reminder letter please contact us by telephone for advice.
If you are having a problem with your vision or with the health of your eyes please contact us by telephone for advice.
McBay Mobile Opticians will continue to closely monitor advice from NHS Scotland, the Scottish Government and the World Health Organisation to ensure we navigate these challenging circumstances with everyone’s health and wellbeing placed as the absolute priority.

17 February 2020It's Random Acts of Kindness Day
Loneliness in the older population is a huge and growing problem in Scotland that can't be fixed with a quick or easy solution. But there's so much we can do to help ourselves and others.
Knock on your neighbours door. Pause when you're out shopping to have a proper blether. Pop round to see that auntie you keep meaning to call.
But more than anything, let's all be kind.
