Specsavers Galashiels is going from strength to strength – after relocating to a bigger location just three years ago it is continuing to grow with the appointment of a new store director.

Existing director Stuart Forrester will be joined by a new partner and fellow optician, Iain McFadyen, to cope with demand.

Qualified optometrist Ian, from Glasgow, brings with him a decade of experience.

Iain said: 'I’ve been testing eyes for ten years now and have spent time gaining additional training through hospitals in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Galashiels.

'Since the store’s relocation to 3 Douglas Bridge a few years ago it has become even more popular hence the need for an expanded team.

With the new optometrist in place the store will now be able to offer appointments for up to 50 more eye tests every week.
