Did you know an eye test could save your life?
With the specialist equipment we have at Buchanan Optometrists it is not uncommon for us to discover things that may not have been diagnosed elsewhere. These are just two of our patients who credit their eye test at Buchanan Optometrists as saving their life.
"My eye test at Buchanan Optometrists saved my life"
I was referred to Alisdair Buchanan by my doctor after I was suffering eye problems which couldn’t correctly be diagnosed. As soon as Alisdair examined my eye, he transferred me to the hospital, where they found out I was suffering from Mucormycosis – a rare flesh-eating disease with an extremely high mortality rate. The hospital subsequently removed my eye before any more harm could be done, but it is fair to say Alisdair saved my life. Alan Smith
"If it wasn't for Alisdair, I wouldn't be alive today"
If it wasn’t for Alisdair, I wouldn’t be alive today. I had been experiencing poor vision for a while, and whilst other opticians could not solve my problem, I visited Alisdair after a recommendation from my brother. Within an hour of seeing me, he suggested I go to the hospital, who then diagnosed a tumour, which was subsequently removed. The hospital since told me that if it hadn’t been discovered I would have been dead within three weeks. Thank you Alisdair.
