About​ Us

your local eye care professionals

John F. Forbes Opticians eye care professionals in Bishopbriggs are dedicated to providing a quality service which is clinically and professionally tailored to suit our patients needs in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Our practice on Kirkintilloch Road in Bishopbriggs is fully equipped with the latest eye care technology – including Retinal Photography, using fundus cameras to capture an image of the back of the eye, allowing for earlier detection of many ocular related health issues.

We can also take a 3 dimensional scan of your eye to allow us to see your eye in even more detail, helping us check your eyes are healthy. During your eye examination we routinely check for Glaucoma and Diabetic changes, providing follow up aftercare wherever necessary.

At John Forbes Opticians we believe in providing the best clinical care to our patients. Our optometrists have either completed or are in the process of completing the College of Optometrists Diploma in Ocular therapeutics as Independent Prescribers. This allows optometrists to prescribe medicines for your eyes in a similar way to your doctor prescribing medicines for the rest of your body.

Our helpful team are always on hand to advise you on designer frames, lenses, contact lenses, children’s eye care and more.

At John F Forbes Opticians we have a wide variety of designer frames to suit both your style and your pocket. Whether you like the traditional shapes or prefer the more stylish sleek or geek chic frames, with over 1500 frames available, we’ll have something for you. We carry designer names including Guess, Vogue, Paul Costello, Superdry, Jimmy Choo, Silhouette, CAT, and Ray-Ban.

We look forward to seeing you.
