Ann White, Banchory

Constantly reaching for my reading glasses, which I've needed for the last 15+ years - forgetting that earlier today I got a pair of incredible varifocal contact lenses from the best opticians in the world! My brain can't quite understand why I keep reaching for the glasses when I don't need them any more! A million thanks to Ann Glennie at Hughes Macdonald & Davidsons of Banchory. Great people, great service and great prices!

I just wanted to thank you for the attention showed to my father when he needed his eyes examined and the swift response to gaining an appointment at the eye clinic in Aberdeen with the result of an appointment tomorrow afternoon. Just need to see what tomorrow brings.

I would like to thank my optician for carrying out my eye test today. Very helpful and good dialogue throughout. I will certainly recommend HMD to others.

A client came to me for shooting lessons and we noticed a problem with his eyes so I sent him to Alan Macdonald. After a sportvision consultation Alan confirmed a complete left eye dominance. So we started again from scratch shooting left handed. Dedication from my client and new glasses have really paid off.

You need shooting glasses to compete in registered competitions, as well as to protect your eyes. So, why not make sure they are correct. That's why I went to Hughes, Macdonald & Davidson Opticians. Feb 2016

“I’ve been wearing my new glasses with varifocal lenses from Hughes, Macdonald & Davidson since mid-October. I am so happy with them and delighted to say I don’t have to take them off when trying to see up close, (which I have had to do with previous ones I got elsewhere). So thank you again, I love my new Silhouette glasses and the varifocal lenses, make my life easier…I’ve never laid them down and lost them once!!!”

“I was delighted to hear Hughes, Macdonald & Davidson were opening a local branch here in Banchory. I visited the practice early this year for the first time and it really is state of the art. The retail area is bright and airy and they have a huge selection of eyewear to choose from. The tests were done to the highest of standards and I certainly got the feeling I was in good hands! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a professional, quality service.”

“I’ve had Dailies Total 1 contact lenses in everyday since Sunday (5-8 May). They are great. Not dried out or uncomfortable. Will definitely change to them.”


“I just wanted to say thank you. I collected my contacts on Sat, and yesterday wore them for over 6 hours without them falling out, drying out or getting a migraine. Also I was able to wear them this morning without problems. Now I have a new perception, its great not having a fuzzy look.”

I can highly recommend Alan Macdonald having attended a Sportvision consultation with him last summer (2015).

“Just to let you know how appreciative I am of the service I received from your staff last Wednesday when I had to get an emergency appointment after I was sent home from work with a searing pain behind my eye and throwing up. Angela talked me through everything on the phone and arranged for me to see Mr. McLeod. He gave me a thorough examination and diagnosed a severe Migraine and advised me on further medical steps to take. It is service like this that keeps me and my wife coming to you for our eye treatment. Please pass on my thanks to your staff.”
