Our Services

 

We offer a comprehensive range of eyecare including full eye examinations. We allow 45 minutes for these so we can ensure all the appropriate tests are done. We have 3 fully equipped testing rooms and a qualified dispenser to provide advice on lens and frame options, adjustments and fittings.

We also have a digital retinal camera so we can photograph the back of your eye if necessary as well as an automated visual fields screener. Our latest acquisition is an OCT machine which can scan all 10 layers of a retina or the nerve fibres of the optic nerve. This is used in glaucoma management and for retinal conditions like ARM and Macula holes. We also have a corneal topographer to analyse accurately the shape of the front of the eye- essentially for our new ortho-k fitting service. We have an onsite lab with the latest in edging technology and online ordering and can offer a 1 hour service for reglazes as well as a full repairs facility.

We offer drivers screening, contact lens fitting and checks, laser surgery assessments and glaucoma checks.

There is a government subsidy available for children under 16 if the family has a community services card or the child has a high health user card which totals $287.50 per annum. You just need to bring in your card and we can help with the paperwork.

At the other end of the scale, if you have a super gold card you can get a discount off the cost of your new frames. We have options to suit all budgets, package deals using quality frames, and designer eyewear.

We have a large contact lens base and can access the subsidy available for some wearers with certain eye conditions such as keratoconus.

Ortho K

Orthokeratology is a non- surgical, non invasive and reversible process which reshapes (flattens) the cornea used rigid gas permeable contact lenses. We offer ORTHO-K for myopic (short sighted) individuals with low degrees of astigmatism. It works by flattening the cornea reducing the focusing power of the eye. The lenses are worn overnight. After the contact lenses are removed in the morning the cornea retains it flattened shape for all or part of the remainder of the day. A lens must be worn up to every night to maintain the flattening or the eye will revert back to its normal shape.

Who is a candidate?
•    People with healthy eyes and low degrees of myopia/short sight
•    Sports people who don’t want to rely on glasses or contact lenses during the day and those that work in windy/dusty conditions
•    Contact lens intolerance with conventional lenses
•    For children and young adults with rapidly progressing myopia as studies have shown it may help to retard myopic progression

Results you can expect.

If your primary goal is to be glasses and contact lens free during the day then ORTHO-K might be a good option for you. However if you want to eliminate the use of contact lenses altogether then ORTHO-K is not likely to satisfy you. You may wish to consider other options in this case.

ORTHO-K has been practiced around the world for many years and is FDA approved in the United States. The risks involved with ORTHO-K contact lenses are the same as those present with normal contact lenses that are worn overnight.

Costs are $1770 which includes all fitting appointments up to 6 months and 2 ORTHO-K lenses. The fitting process will require a few more visits than standard contact lenses to ensure proper stabilization of the lenses and to check that eye health is being maintained.

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
