McMenamin Eyecare

In our latest business profile, we take a look at a business that’s been established at their current location for more than 20 years: McMenamin Eyecare on Quarry Street …

The business was founded by Harry McMenamin, a dispensing Optician, “to serve the local community of Hamilton and surrounding area with eye exams and contact lens fitting services“. Harry retired from the business four years ago.

Opened in February 1990, McMenamin Eyecare provides professional eye care and screening services for glaucoma diabetes and many other medical ailments which can be detected through routine eye exams.

Today, McMenamin celebrates being the longest trading opticians in Hamilton and is seen by many as their first choice for professional eyecare. In store, you will find a large range of spectacle brands “to suit all age groups and fashion tastes“.

And the company’s products and services combine to deliver the complete offering: “providing people with the correct visual appearance backed up by a professional in depth eye exam“.

Recommendation and referral is key to the business: “We have managed to attract many new patients due to word of mouth recommendation from our loyal patients. Our patients are our best asset in growing our business as they are our advertising department!

Check out their key services …

  • Free Sight Tests: The process of an eye test is simple and thorough. At McMenamin Eyecare, we recommend you have your eyes checked by a specialist at least every 2 years, or more frequently if recommended by your optician. Most people living in Scotland are eligible for a free eye examination.
  • Free Retinal Screening: A retinal examination allows our Optometrists to check the back of your eyes are healthy. The retina contain the light sensitive cells that help our brains process what we see. For anyone recently arrived in Hamilton you will be surprised at the choice of shops, cafes, restaurants and the friendly nature of the locals.
  • Free Diabetic Screening: Diabetes can lead to a condition called Diabetic Retinopathy as well as other eye conditions. Regular  eye tests can help our Opticians to spot the early signs of this condition and enable you to take action to control diabetes before it damages your body and your eyes.

They have five full time staff with three locum optometrists on duty on different days to give the widest choice of eye care services, and these extend beyond Hamilton with another branch in Newmains, Wishaw, which trades as Economeyes Opticians.
