Steven Whittaker Optometrists was established in 2007 by Steven Whittaker, who qualified from GCU in 1982.  Steven and his brother Mark have had their own practices since 1989, and in 2007 Steven took over Carnoustie and Brechin on his own. In April 2016, the Brechin practice was bought over by Stuart McConnachie, leaving Steven full time in Carnoustie.

In November 2011, Steven completed his Post-Graduate Diploma in Therapeutics, based at Glasgow Caledonian University, and including one day a week for 6 months at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee. He is one of the growing number of Registered Independent Prescribing Optometrists in Scotland. Steven also started his MSc, in Clinical Ophthalmology, at Edinburgh University in September 2014, gaining a Distinction award for both his 1st and 2nd Year work, and graduated in July 2017 with the final year being a thesis work, which is then due to be published, on the Realities of Primary Care Therapeutics. The thesis also won the Philip Cole Prize for Research Excellence, awarded by the College of Optometrists.

We endeavor to treat all our patients with the emphasis on individual care – we’ll even serve you coffee or tea while you wait for a partner or friend. We regularly send our optometrists, and support staff on training courses run by suppliers and official bodies in order to keep up to date with new thoughts and new techniques.

Our equipment is amongst some of the most sophisticated in the country as we keep bang up to date with the latest technology.

All of this is reinforced by old fashioned service and friendliness.
