We have been using Andrew Baird Optometrists for a few years now and we always get a great service. If my son breaks his glasses or has any issue with them he can be seen the same day, if they need fixed or replaced we only ever need to wait a couple of days for replacements. During lockdown Andrew was great at fixing and replacing and even dropping them back off to the house. Always a great service received and we wouldn’t go to any other optician now.

Andrew and his team (Gavin) are simply "fantastic" and genuinely provide a good customer experience when getting the right glasses prescription and design for you. Would highly recommend their service.

As a family, we have been going to Andrew for eye tests, glasses and contact lenses since he opened in Callander. Just recently, my Mum who is in her 90s, went to see Andrew, because she has been struggling with her eyesight. Her new glasses have changed her life and it's great to see her confidence out and about returning. And her new glasses are super-trendy too! Thank you, Andrew.
