“You should ask about the nocturnal contact lenses, I have been wearing them for over 6 years and have never looked back.  My distance vision is fantastic.  Might not suit everyone but it’s been the best thing I have done, it’s worth a try.”

My family and I have been attending Ivar for many years. Ivar has a great manner with the kids and made their appointment fun but also explained everything to them. My new glasses are fab so also thanks to Helen and Gwen for their advice and help! What a choice of frames!! We would recommend visiting Ivar, he is thorough and explains everything really well.

I and my family have been patients of this practice for over twenty years. I have always found them very friendly and helpful.
3 years ago, I changed from wearing glasses/monthly contact lenses to nocturnal lenses and I can’t believe the difference! I found them challenging for the first week until I got used to wearing hard lenses, having never worn them before, but the bonus of not needing any lenses/glasses at all during the day was worth it. I would definitely recommend anyone to try them and “see” the difference!

I have been going to see Mr McLeish for years, and couldn’t ask for a better service! Mr McLeish and his staff are lovely, they even remembered myself and my daughter when they met for the first time at 2weeks old. I Had the OCT scan for the first time today, it’s really amazing what it can do.

I’ve been going to Mr McLeish for years and couldn’t ask for a better service! Had the OCT scan for the first time today and it’s really amazing what it can do – everyone should definitely get it done.

After a really bad experience with hard contact lenses 20 odd years ago I thought I’d be stuck with glasses forever! then I heard about nocturnal contact lenses and couldn’t quite believe they could be as good as they sounded – 6 months on I’m delighted with them, best decision ever! The testing and fitting process was reassuringly thorough and every step was explained, staff at IJ McLeish were really supportive throughout.

So impressed with my new Orthok nocturnal contact lenses. No more glasses after just 1 week, 20/20 vision after 2 weeks, now 6 weeks on & have never been happier. Thanks so much to Mr McLeish & lovely staff, best decision I ever made!

Been going to I J McLeish Opticians for over thirty years for my eye care and still very happy with the care I get. Peace of mind that my eyes are healthy and for over six years been wearing my prescribed contact lenses especially made for over night wear and in the morning my distance vision is so good I don’t need to wear my glasses. Its the nearest thing for me to having laser eye surgery. Just contacts no operation to get my 20 20 vision.

I had never heard of nocturnal lenses before, but after trying them I have never looked back! Highly recommended if you don’t like wearing glasses.
