About Look Opticians
Look Opticians have been providing family eyecare in Erskine since 1986. Originally founded by dispensing optician Diarmid MacArthur and optometrist Calum McCallum, it is still owned and run by Diarmid and his optometrist wife Joan, who came to work there in 1992 and married the boss in 1995! Look Opticians is very much a Community based business, supporting many local schools and charities over the years. Many of the friendly, knowledgeable staff are local which gives a real “family” feel to the business, as they know a great number of the patients and their families. We feel that this is a very important factor in our business, as so much of our day to day life is spent dealing with large, anonymous companies and call centres. We like the personal touch and that is what we strive to achieve at Look Opticians.


Following the arrival of Joan and Diarmid`s daughters in 2001 and 2004. we were delighted to welcome optometrist Sharon Scally to our professional team. Sharon had worked for us as a student and is another “local” girl. Following the arrival of her wee girl in 2010, we were joined by another local optometrist and former student employee, Suzanne Laidlaw and we are delighted that she has stayed with us following Sharon`s return to work. These three optometrists bring a wealth of experience and fresh ideas to Look Opticians.

We have an excellent team of reception and support staff, who are knowledgeable and friendly and will give advice and assistance whenever required. They also carry out duties such as peripheral vision screening and contact lens instruction, as well as occasional dispensing and spectacle fitting. They are our “front line” staff and are here to help you!

The role of the optometrist (and indeed, the name – they used to be called Ophthalmic Opticians) has changed greatly since Look Opticians opened. The emphasis is now very much on the health aspect of eyecare and we are now the first port of call for any eye problems you may have, rather than your GP or pharmacy. The Optometrist will assess whether you need further referral or some other course of treatment.
Look Opticians provide full vision testing, screening and contact lens services and also stock a comprehensive and exciting range of spectacles, including many of the top designer names. However, just because we stock expensive frames, it doesn`t mean we are expensive! We have a great selection of fashion frames from £30.00 and, if you are under 19 or entitled to an NHS voucher, we have a large selection of free frames to choose from (it`s worth noting that not all opticians provide free specs with a voucher!)

See yourself as others see you!

Do you have problems seeing yourself when trying on frames? Don`t worry, we have the answer. Our Vision Control system takes digital images of you in your selected new frames, then lets you look at the pictures. You can see the front, the sides, compare colours and shapes. No more guessing what your specs are going to look like.
