Downes Opticians

If you've already read our charity page, then you'll probably have some understanding of how we operate, but this is how we work in Practice! We are extremely proud to be nestled in the heart of Leith and one of the many benefits afforded to us by our location is our incredibly diverse patient base. As a local independent optician we are exceptionally privileged to have a far reaching client base that covers many parts of Edinburgh and beyond. That isn't to say we aren't professional-we are very proud of our eye examinations, dispensings and well, the whole journey in-between.

We do purposely aim for a more relaxed and informal experience. After a warm welcome to all, it's time to relax on our comfy sofas with a complimentary coffee (tea or hot chocolate!) If you do need new spectacles, then our fair ethos again comes into play. We house a whole host of frames starting from free up to around £300 and everywhere in between.
