John Trotter & Co Ophthalmic Opticians practice is prominently situated on George Street in Edinburgh’s city centre, near the Assembly rooms. The practice has a classic design that is warm and welcoming. The traditional design of the front practice contrasts with the hi-tec equipment in the consulting areas.

Our Optometrists

We have two principal Optometrists; the Managing Partner Eleanor Leech and Coral Allan. After gaining experience as a hospital optometrist in Middlesburgh and researching into causes of Myopia in Cardiff, Eleanor has been in the practice since 1998; Coral since 1996.

Our Dispensing manager, Mr Chetty, is well known to all our clients as he has been with the Edinburgh practice for over 30 years and he is now joined by Razia Mahommad, also a qualified Dispensing Optician.

Says Eleanor

“We have a very high rate of customer retention which results from two factors. Firstly, we have a stable staff of very competent Optometrists.. This enables continuity in the relationship between optometrist. and client. Secondly, our Dispensing Opticians are qualified to a high level and are fully aware of the vast range of problems that we know can result in inappropriate glasses being supplied. Taking time to cover every aspect of a client’s visual history pays dividends for us as we do a huge amount of repeat and client referral business. At Trotters you can be sure we regard you as a whole person and not just another customer”
