An independent optician offering unbeatable service

Colin Picken Eyecare is an independent opticians, providing the very best professional eye care services to the local community and beyond. We use the latest technology to gather the most detailed information about your eyes, which in turn assists your optometrist in making accurate and timely diagnoses.

Our clinical assessments aim to reveal any issues affecting your sight, or indeed your general health, and are especially valuable in the early detection of conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Combined with our clinical expertise, we aim to deliver expert eye health advice and treatments for optimal visual health, as well as quality products at fair prices.

In addition to providing NHS eye examinations, we also run private Dry Eye Clinics and Contact Lens Clinics. We welcome existing contact lens wearers, as well as those looking to try contact lenses for the first time.

All of this is available at our independent opticians and contact lens centre in Moffat, Dumfries and Galloway.

** COVID-19 Update **

Coronavirus has changed the way all our health services work. All optometry practices (opticians) are now open, but services will be delivered differently during the pandemic.

If you have an eye problem, you should always contact your opticians first. It’s also important to have a regular NHS-funded eye examination as this can help to detect any eye problems and signs of other significant health conditions before they become more serious.

Due to physical distancing and infection control measures, opticians can only offer a certain amount of appointments each day, and priority will be given to people with emergency or essential eye problems.

When attending your appointment, your opticians will look a bit different, but please follow the guidance to help reduce the risk of infection.

These changes are in place to protect you, your family and staff. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
