New Eyecare centre opened in Balfron

Local MP, Stephen Kerr, officially opened ‘Balfron Eyecare’, the new comprehensive centre based in Balfron last week.

The business is owned and operated by Optometrist Susan McGarry who has over sixteen years’ experience, including a diploma in Therapeutic Prescribing that enables Susan to carry out treatment of a wide range of ocular medical conditions directly. The new business will be providing professional eye examinations, high quality eyewear at exceptional value and excellent local service.

Balfron Eyecare provides:

NHS funded eye examinations

High quality affordable range of glasses

Contact lenses fitting and aftercare

Children’s eyecare

Red eye and dry eye treatments


The centre is located at 20 Buchanan Street in Balfron.  The centre will provide a service for people across west Stirlingshire. At present people have to go to Stirling or Milngavie and that can present a problem for those with eyecare conditions, often meaning they are unable to drive.

Stephen Kerr said:

“I was delighted to be asked to perform the official opening and to welcome such a great local business for people across these rural communities. I’m sure the centre will be well supported given the wide range of services available and the opportunity to access them much more locally than before. Our local entrepreneurs are the back bone of high streets and always understand the need to provide excellent customer service.”

Susan McGarry said:

“This is really exciting and I look forward to welcoming people to our new centre.  I wanted to be able to provide as wide a range of services as possible but maintain great value for money. Everyone has been so welcoming and what a lovely place Balfron is to run a business from.”
