Last year was a fantastic year for the practice, culminating in winning the UK Practice of the Year award and we are busier now than we’ve ever been. As a result we are delighted to be opening a third consulting room and next month we welcome experienced optometrist Claire Keith to the practice. Claire has recently moved to Edinburgh after running her own practice in Aberdeen for 17 years. Since qualifying as an optometrist in 1993, Claire, who is originally from Warwickshire, has developed a passion for contact lenses, in particular, working with patients with complex needs.

Claire said, “I am very excited about coming to work at Cameron Optometry. It deservedly has a fantastic reputation for offering the best possible eye care with the most up to date equipment. I am thoroughly looking forward to getting know all the patients, providing them with the best possible level of service. With great staff, equipment, care and service, the practice has built its reputation and the loyalty of its customers.”

In Aberdeen Claire became her clients’ first point of contact for all emergency eye care, rather than visiting their GP or the eye department. This increased her experience and expertise allowing her to deal with the wide range of eye-related issues we see at Cameron Optometry, from removing foreign bodies to acute, sight-threatening conditions. She is currently working towards her Independent Prescribing qualification, allowing her to manage more eye conditions and use the full range of available eye medications. Once Claire has passed her exams Cameron Optometry will be the only practice in the UK with three independent prescribing optometrists giving us a unique ability to manage the most complex and challenging patient issues and problems.

Outside work, Claire and her family are a sporty bunch, embracing the great outdoors at every opportunity. Having run her first (and not last!) marathon last year alongside her husband, she keeps her body as healthy as her eyes. Her children, Connor, 15 and Ella, 11, share her passion for sport and she spends her weekends watching them participate.
To make an appointment with Claire, please call 0131 225 2235.
