If you are looking for an established independent practice which can give you trusted clinical advice by experienced optometrists using the latest technology, then you are looking at the correct website. If you are looking for honest guidance on a wide range of spectacle frames and lenses covering all budgets, then you are looking at the correct website.
Kilgour Optometrists has just celebrated its 50th Anniversary. Started by Bill Kilgour in 1961 the practice has grown to require the services of 6 optometrists and 2 dispensing opticians.
We have a practice in Ayr and Troon, both of which are equipped to a very high standard. We have time to listen and have the expertise to really care for your eyes.
Our professional staff have been with us for many years and work very much as a team. All of our optometrists have hospital experience – John Watt, Alistair Simpson, Carol Semple, Douglas Orr, Sarah Muir and Julia Hunter.
Together, their collective enthusiasm ensures that the practice is at the leading edge of community eyecare services such as diabetic, glaucoma and macular degeneration screening.
Our contact lens practice is large and is recognised for the range of contact lens designs that can be fitted successfully.
When it comes to spectacles if you want to look cool - - we can do cool. If you want designer - - we can do designer. If you want budget - - we can do that too. Being independent doesn't have to mean expensive for comparable products. Having the correct frame and lens doesn't happen by accident. You need advice from people who know what they are doing. Our dispensing staff - Douglas Hart and Fiona Kelly in Ayr and Alison Bargh in Troon will give you time to choose.
Our close links to the local Eye Hospitals allow us to arrange direct referral for conditions such as cataracts, and wet age related macular degeneration. We will also provide follow up care after your surgery or treatment. We look after a large number of patients referred by the eye hospital for specialist contact lens services for conditions such as keratoconus and patients who have had a corneal graft.
Our loyal reception staff keep the cogs turning and together we have a successful progressive practice which we hope you will enjoy.
