J.H Wilson Opticians support Guide Dogs for the Visually Impaired

As a community opticians in the heart of Melrose in the Scottish Borders, J.H Wilson Optician’s are proud to support a national charity with a local heart spearheaded for many years through the indefatigable spirit of Betty Brown who sadly passed away recently. The baton is taken up and continues with Frances and, J.H Wilson Opticians are delighted to have raised more than any other local business for her this year. ‘Guide Dogs for the Blind’ has supported visually impaired people across the country for over 90 years. Thanks to the charity’s dedicated staff, volunteers and donations, Guide Dogs for the Blind has helped over 29,000 people across the country to achieve life changing independence.


“We are a dog friendly practice and happy to continue our support for the Guide Dogs for the Blind, a charity close to our heart. We have raised a large amount this year thanks to the generous contributions of our lovely patients here.” 

Pauline Scott, Practice Manager


The people at J.H Wilson Opticians are passionate about healthy vision and providing the best eye care possible for our patients. As a leading medical practice in the Borders working closely with the hospital, our optometrists work with a range of eye conditions and visual needs. Through the summer and beyond, we recommend Zeiss UV Protect Technology to safeguard your vision against harmful UVA and UVB radiation. We don’t charge for minor repairs or adjustments at the practice, a charitable donation for Guide Dogs is always warmly appreciated.
