Your optometrist will discuss your lifestyle and specific visual
needs before explaining which contact lenses are available to you
and the merits of each. Once the lenses are fitted, we will teach
you how to wear and care for your lenses and what steps to take to

'I had found myself straining my eyes while using my laptop in
work, struggling to see the screen properly. I decided to book an
appointment at Black & Lizars, as my friend had recommended
From the moment I booked my appointment at Gordon Street the
service was exemplary. I was booked in quickly, at a time and day
that suited me, and when I arrived for my appointment they had all
my previous optician's notes to hand; I felt they really knew about
my eyes. The optometrist was very pleasant and answered all my
questions and even gave me the confidence to try daily disposable
After my eye test I was helped to choose my new glasses, which
were ready in a few days' time to coincide with my contact lens
fitting. My whole experience was very satisfying and the difference
between Black & Lizars and other opticians is clear... quality,
person-centred eye care!'
