John Burnside has retired and the Clarkston practice has been acquired by Urquhqart Opticians.  We wish them well.   Battlefield shall continue as a fully independent optometry practice as Burnside McPhee Opticians with Allan and David McPhee.  We will continue with our well established ethos.

We always put quality first and have invested in the most advanced eye testing equipment available.

Our practice offers a friendly, comfortable environment and welcoming staff. We are completely independent, so are able to offer a very wide range of spectacle frames and lenses, which we believe is more extensive and better value than many multiple groups.

We have over 30 years of experience in fitting all types of contact lenses including the more complex designs. We always welcome new and existing contact lens wearers.

Spectacle Lenses

Made to order

All our spectacle lenses are made to order to ensure that each individual patient gets the best bespoke solution for their needs.

At Burnside McPhee, we like to stock huge range of frames and believe we have a larger range than other optical outlets, with no duplicates on display.
