Comprehensive, conscientious professional eye care and unbiased ethical advice.
Ruth Bigger Opticians have been providing an exceptionally high standard of eye care in the Waterside area of the city for over 30 years.
Originally located just opposite Ebrington Barracks on Limavady Road in 1985, as a Waterside addition to Brian Mooney’s Queen St practice in the city. Moving to Clooney Terrace in 1999 for more ground floor space, and adding Gavin Fullerton in 2006 and other equipment upgrades along the way! We were the first optician in the Waterside area of the city, attracting people from Claudy/Dungiven, and out to Strabane and Eglinton/Limavady. Nowadays returning “youngsters” visiting family back home come from much further away!
Familiarity breeds content!
By embracing the latest in modern technology combined with our wide experience in vision care and ocular health, we deliver a superior level of eye care within a comfortable and friendly environment.
In addition to routine eye examinations for NHS and private patients we are happy to accept complex cases and undertake specialist work such as:
- Diabetic eye screening and Retinal scans
- Dry Eye diagnosis and effective lasting relief from discomfort
- Contact lenses – including Ortho-k and myopia control
- Paediatric eye care
- Visual stress and reading difficulties clinic
You will have your vision and eye care requirements fully explained and needs met where possible.
Should you require glasses you will be offered a range of frames that fit and flatter, and within your selected budget. We don’t change your specs if you don’t need to or don’t want to. You should see better with your new specs or we’ll give you your money back.
All appropriate options for vision correction are presented, including contact lenses, as there may be more than one solution to fit your lifestyle.
The frames, lenses and contact lenses we use are best in class. We believe you deserve that.
