Why work with Vision Scotland

Vision Scotland was established in 2010 and is Scotland’s leading provider of hospital based, multi-site cataract and refractive surgery. We are fully regulated by Health Improvement Scotland’s Healthcare Environment Inspectorate (HIS HEI). In addition, our surgeons are regulated and revalidated by the General Medical Council.

We’re committed to investing in the most up to date technology for the benefit of our patients. We provide a service that compares favourably to the best eye centres in Europe and America. To maintain these high standards, we continually invest in new diagnostic equipment, new staff and introduce new services.

What sets us apart from the rest is the exceptional patient care we provide to each and every one of our patients. Every member of staff lives and breathes a mindset that our patients come first.
