Curran Optometrists was established in 1960 - during that time the practice has enjoyed providing quality eye care and eyewear to the community. The experienced members of staff show dedication in their work, and fully understand the visual needs of everyone.
Our ethos is to strive for clinical excellence, and we achieve this through a continuous education and training programme for all our staff. We attend seminars and lectures throughout the year and this enables us to deliver the best and most up to date patient care.
The practice utilises all the newest technology in ophthalmic instrumentation to deliver a comprehensive eye examination. In addition, the onsite optical laboratory is fully equipped to carry out spectacle glazing and repairs.
