Mackey Opticians are delighted to be selected to be part of the HIGH STREET SPEND LOCAL SCHEME. The cards are available for issue from 4th October 2021 and you will have just two months until 30th November 2021 to make use of them.


And Mackey Opticians are offering to boost your pre-paid card with an extra £30 discount off any spectacles purchased with an anti-reflection coating, bifocals, varifocals or polarised prescription sunglass lenses – or any designer sunglasses priced over £130. (see t&c’s). Or you can avail of any of their other offers instead, listed on their website at

You can use your pre-paid card against any purchase within Mackey Opticians at any of our 14 practices across Northern Ireland - click here for contact details 

Our designer spectacles and sunglasses now include Tom Ford, Chloe and Gucci which are exclusive to Mackey Opticians in many areas across Northern Ireland. Other designer names include Lacoste, Nike, DVF, Longchamp, Aspinal of London, Police, Landrover and Cocoa Mint. 

We are also long established Rayban and Oakley authorised dealers and you can purchase both with authentic Rayban or Oakley prescription lenses – either with clear anti-reflection coatings or any of the RayBan or Oakley prescription sunglass lenses available.

With the winter nights coming in and more late-night driving, you may want to fit your new spectacles with our EnRoute driving lens which helps cut down glare from headlights – recommended by many local professional drivers including HGV and taxi. Now available with Sensity Dark – a variable tint that darkens during the day even behind windscreens, so it is perfect for night-time and daytime driving. 

You can also use your pre-paid card against one of our Advanced Eye Examinations – we have Topcon 3D-Maestro OCT’s in nearly all of our local practices which offer to detect earlier signs of eye diseases such as Glaucoma, Age Related Macula Degeneration and Diabetic Eye changes. 

Mark Mackey of Mackey Opticians is very happy to be part of the Spend Local NI Executive’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) recovery programme – “It has been a very busy eighteen months since the start of the pandemic. We were able to stay open throughout the first “lock-down” offering emergency eyecare and delivering spectacles and contact lenses to our patients’ doors despite the pressures of lack of PPE provision during the early weeks. Thankfully some of our dental colleagues were able to help in the early days – especially important as they had closed normal eye casualty services and we had large numbers of unusual eye conditions to see under the NIPEARS scheme. 

Since July 2020 our practices have slowly tried to get back to some sort of normality although we still require people to book visits in advance – you can phone for a spectacle dispensing if you would like to come and browse our spectacles without an eye examination, or to discuss any of the options listed above. You can use the card against any purchase – eye examinations, spectacles, sunglasses or contact lenses and we will be very happy to boost the card payment with an extra £30 discount as explained. 

You can use the Spend Local pre-paid card as a deposit when ordering your purchase or against the final settlement if you want to order now and pay the balance when you get your card.

It is great to see such a scheme to encourage people to shop local and support the high street. Please give any of our practices a call today and book an appointment to come and see us. Practice contact details are available at”
