History and Background:
Written by now owner Gordon Kyle: My family and I were recommended to visit Miller & McClure Opticians in the early 1980s as my sister (Jenny) had an issue with her eyes and required expert advice to ensure they developed in the correct way.
The whole family became regular visitors to the practice and over the years I became fascinated and inspired by the skills of the Optometrists George Miller and Liz McClure. When I was in 2nd year in High School (approx 13yrs old) I sought the advice of George Miller who recommended the correct subjects to take to lead me into the World of Optometry.
I was also lucky enough to spend his work experience week at Miller & McClure when I was 15 years old. This week allowed me to gain an invaluable insight into what was required in becoming a respected Optometrist as well as running an independent business. Over the years I have known that I might have the chance to return as an Optometrist or even an owner.
In 2001 I qualified as an Optometrist and worked with Black and Lizars Optometrists for 10 years. My team had a successful time winning Practice of the year on 3 occasions as well as me becoming a coach who supported other Optometrists. From there I moved to Asda Opticians (working in Linwood) and won Asda Optometrist of the Year in 2014. In 2018 I decided to work as a locum Optometrist which gave me the opportunity to experience a broad range of different businesses. This also cemented my desire to “come home” to Miller and McClure where it all started 35 years previously!
Gordon also added: I want to make a difference to the people of Paisley – I believe I have a real knack of explaining complex conditions/issues to patients so that they feel comfortable and leave the practice well informed. This means they can make the right decision about their eye care. Hopefully, I can also inspire the next generation of Optometrists.
