Longtown branch

Our independent family-run and family-orientated Practice in Longtown was first established by Eric Hagan and Christine Hagan in 2003.

We were joined by Optical Assistants Alison Carruthers and Tracey Van Nuil in the first week, and Dispensing Optician Michael Rice became part of the team in 2015. Our aim is to provide a friendly and professional local service encouraging better eyecare and eye health in the heart of the local community.

Eric has been a fully qualified Optometrist for over 30 years and has a specialist postgraduate qualification in Ocular Therapeutics following clinical training at the Cumberland Infirmary, and can prescribe licenced medications for conditions affecting the eye. He and Mike work across both Practices and have a wealth of experience and expertise.

After 17 years we still follow the same principles of high quality products and exceptional service, and are fortunate to have a super team of friendly and knowledgeable staff who will go out of their way to help with your eyecare and eyewear needs. Our patients travel from all around the local area and South West Scotland, and we greatly value their loyalty and feedback on their care and health needs.

We have a wide and select range of frames including Silhouette, Kate Spade, Bulgari, Emporio Armani, Versace, Johann Von Goisern. We provide a range of specialist spectacle lenses to meet every visual need and purpose. We can provide single vision, bifocal and varifocal lenses to every specification, and eyewear for driving, sportswear and safety spectacles for when specific eye protection is needed.

Our goal is to provide a local, personal and professional service and we look forward to welcoming you to the Longtown Practice.
