At Ythan Opticians, we are committed to providing the highest quality eye care and advice. Our practice in Ellon was established in September 2007 and continues to grow in strength.

We provide NHS eye examinations which are free of charge and our specialist prescribing optometrists are able to treat eye conditions, providing NHS prescriptions as required.

We also provide a full range of optical services including specialist paediatric eyecare, occupational eyewear and all types of contact lenses.

As a totally independent company, we are able to source the most suitable spectacle lens option for your needs. We are approved suppliers of a wide range of quality spectacle lenses and are qualified Varilux specialists.

Our practice has one of the widest ranges of spectacle frames in the North East of Scotland. If we do not have a specific frame in stock we can normally source the exact model. We cater for all budgets and tastes and pride ourselves in providing the highest quality dispensing service.
