Following Government advice, we are pleased to advise you that McCabe Opticians will be allowed to see some routine patients from Monday 3 August.

Since all Opticians have a 5 month backlog of routine patients to see, we are asking you to allow us to work through some more urgent patients in the first few weeks, before we open up to everyone.

If you have broken glasses, or have changes to your vision which concern you, please call us and we will fit you in soon.

If you are managing with current glasses, and are just overdue your routine appointment, then we hope you will be able to wait a little longer.

For further assistance please call the practice on 0141 880 6868

At McCabe’s we’ve been interested to see the local and national adverts announcing the arrival of the new state of the art OCT screener


In answer to the questions that we’ve been asked by several patients, yes this is the screening device we have been offering for the past 9 years. It has been and will continue to be offered to our patients at no charge to them.

Our History

McCabe Opticians opened at the Westbourne Centre in 1986. Over the past 30+ years, the practice has grown continuously and we are now the longest established Optometrists in the Barrhead/Neilston area. In 1990 Tony was joined by wife Mary (also an optometrist) and we now have Nicola and Anna as members of our Optometry team.

As a family run practice, it has been a pleasure to see patients return to us over the years and we now see the children and grandchildren of our original patients.
