Discover the Untold Secret to Exceptional Eye Care with Buchanan Optometrists

Have you ever wondered why some people take their eyesight for granted while others do everything possible to protect it? Welcome to Buchanan Optometrists - where we treat your eyes like the precious gems they are. Established in 1999 by visionary Alisdair Buchanan, we've made eye care a science and an art form.

Your Eyes Deserve the Best—Why Settle for Less?

Imagine being served by an optometrist practice that's been declared the absolute best in the UK, not just once but multiple times. Yes, you read that right! We're not just another optician on the high street. We're the multi-award-winning, best Independent practice in the UK and home to the Optometrist of the Year.

What Makes Us the Elite in British Optometry?

We've poured over £650,000 into cutting-edge technology and raised the bar for the industry, specialising in complex fields such as advanced glaucoma care, dry eyes, and bespoke, tailor-made spectacles.
