Practice Profile


Corry & Christie is an award winning independent optical practice situated in the city centre of Aberdeen.

Founded in 1933, the practice traded for 71 years as ‘Eddie & Drummond’ before being re-branded ‘Corry & Christie’ in April 2005.

In recent years significant investment has been made in clinical equipment and software, and in  2006 the practice was awarded the ‘Independent Fightback Award’ by Optician Magazine for being judged the Independent Practice within the UK to have competed most effectively against increasing competition in the Optical Industry.

In 2008 the practice was nominated in two further categories at the UK Optician Awards:  ‘Independent Practice of the Year’ and ‘Software Practice of the Year’, and Principal Optometrist David Corry was short-listed for the title of ‘Outstanding Optometrist of the Year’.

David reached the final shortlist for ‘Optometrist of the Year’ again in 2010, and the practice was once again nominated for ‘Independent Practice of the Year’.

Corry & Christie now offer a wide range of general and specialist services, and provide eye care for four hospitals within NHS Grampian (Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital, Royal Cornhill Hospital and Aboyne Hospital), with the latter two Hospitals served exclusively by the practice.

Ongoing investment in eyewear collections, and close relationships with suppliers has resulted in a growing contact lens patient base and an ever changing stock of over 1200 frames which includes many fashion, contemporary and designer brands.

With a dedicated experienced team, the aim of the practice is to offer patients and customers an excellent standard of eye care and an excellent selection of eyewear at competitive prices, and to be at the forefront of Optometry within Grampian and Scotland in the years ahead.
