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.

08 January 2020Happy New Year!
A very happy 2020 to all my wonderful patients. It's great to be back from the holidays and to be out and about on home visits. I'm looking forward to Spring already, but I suppose there are a few months to go yet!
McBay Mobile Opticians is now nearly 6 years old. And I've been working as a qualified Optometrist for 25 years. How time flies.
Looking forward to seeing you all again throughout the year ahead.
Very best wishes, Ann
09 December 2019What to do about Dry Eye - part 3
Diet, or what we put in our bodies, can play a big part in Dry Eye.
Smoking has a direct link with Dry Eye and your Optometrist will have already advised you to stop.
A healthy diet rich in Omega 3 fatty acids can help too. If you don't like oily fish then consider a good quality supplement or old fashioned Cod Liver oil. Vitamin D can also play a role in healthy tear films. Adequate levels are tricky to achieve from diet alone and in northern countries it makes sense to take a supplement.
