Andrew Matheson, Director of Matheson Optometrists was the first optometrist in the UK to obtain the British College qualification in Ocular Therapeutics. He holds many specialist qualifications and is registered with BUPA and other private health care providers, and accepts referrals from consultant eye surgeons such as James Kirwan and Andrew Luff.
Specialising in Anterior Eye therapy, in particular treating dry eye, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and Blepharitis, he first started in this field in the late 1980's and has fitted punctal implants for over 20 years.
He has a steady stream of patients from all parts of the UK and even some from further afield.
We pride ourselves on using the best diagnostic equipment available.
We have Zeiss Cirrus OCT devices in all of our practices which enable us to view your retina and other areas of your eyes which we would be unable to view without this equipment.
We are able to perform autofluorescence photography. This enables us to take photographs of your retina, filtering out all but a small wavelength of light, enabling us to capture images which cannot be taken with traditional retinal photography.
We use Zeiss Humphrey visual screening equipment in all our practices. In the profession this equipment is deemed the gold standard.
We have both Essilors Visioffice digital measuring system and iTerminal Mobile by Zeiss. This enables us to take the measurements required for bespoke lenses which cannot be taken with any other device.
We also have the option to take multiple photographs of you wearing our frames to aid with selection.
As a family run independent group of practices, we are free of the constraints many larger chains of Opticians face. We are free to source the best frames, sunglasses, spectacle lenses and contact lenses available and are not tied to any particular suppliers. We source our products based on quality, style and after sales service.
We are confident we have something for everyone, from high end luxury frames such as Mykita and Lindberg, reasonably priced designer ranges such as Calvin Klein, Nike, Lacoste and Jaeger, Small niche brands such as Rock Optika and of course our own brand high quality ranges.
We can provide lenses produced by all the leading manufacturers including Zeiss and Kodak, both renowned and respected lens manufacturers.
