Our philosophy

We like to think that our philosophy is simple - your eyes are precious and we exist to take care of them. Since 2004 KD Wallace Eyecare has delivered first class eyecare, quality products, professional advice and service, in a personal manner. As a completely independent practice we are able to focus on excellent clinical practice and commercial integrity so that you can be assured of the care that you and your family deserve.

Our generous appointment times allow us to take the time to thoroughly examine your eyes and fully address your needs. Our individualised approach provides an eye care experience above and beyond the industry standard - and this backed up by our industry leading patient return rate.

We are aided in this by the latest state of the art equipment - rivalling that of a well equipped hospital. In the right hands these sensitive instruments allow us to detect serious conditions as early as possible and monitor the effectiveness of any treatment.

Our treatment approach is to be patient centred, preventative and, as much as possible, non-invasive. We will give you the information you require to make an informed choice and be clear when treatment is important and what options you have. 

If you require glasses we stock over 500 individually chosen frames to suit every style and budget and can provide expert advice to help you choose from a range of quality lenses.

To find out for yourself how our friendly team can help please call 0131 467 6800 to arrange a convenient appointment.

You only get one set of eyes and it would be our pleasure to help you keep them that way.
