Seeing is believing! Buncrana's McCool Eyecare leading the way

Optometrist Roslyn McCool and Optical Assistant Louise Doherty.

Buncrana's newest opticians has proved to be a big hit with local residents.

McCool Eyecare, which is situated at 10a Ardaravan Square, has gone from strength to strength in just a matter of months.

The high quality and friendly service that is provided by Roslyn McCool (Campbell) and her professional team allows her to get to know her clients on a personal one to one basis to find out their specific needs, which allows her to make excellent recommendations based on this.

Roslyn takes her time with patients, which makes the whole process a pleasant experience.

As an optometrist, Roslyn worked in an opticians in Foyleside for the past 13 years but always wanted to have her own store.

From years of experience, Roslyn had the opportunity to work with a variety of eyewear ranges and lens suppliers. Following this she saw a gap in the North West Region for a personalised one to one service offering a thorough eye exam followed by a complete styling consultation regarding eyewear a patient would walk out of the store excited to show off.

“We want all our patients to look good, feel great and enjoy the best possible vision from their glasses,” Roslyn said.

Roslyn also works with HSE part time and works in St Conal's Hospital, Letterkenny and works as an optometrist in the paediatric clinics. This job role has given Roslyn excellent experience in working with children with complex eye conditions and children with disabilities.
