About us
About My Optometrist
  • We are an independent optometry group, entirely owned and operated by Optometrists and Optical Dispensers so that we can keep your eyecare at the centre of everything we do.
  • Independence allows us to source the best spectacle lenses and contact lenses on the market from companies like Hoya and Essilor to give you the best possible vision.
  • We strive to constantly update our knowledge. Our Optometrists all have over 14 years’ experience and have all undertaken postgraduate training in ocular therapeutics in order to prescribe eye preparations such as anti-glaucoma medications, antibiotics, steroidal and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories.
  • We can offer glaucoma shared-care in conjunction with your Ophthalmologist, as well as aftercare for cataract and refractive eye surgery.
  • Our practices are all equipped with state of the art equipment such as Medmont visual field machines and Kowa 3D retinal camera and Optos ultra-widefield
  • We are one of the few Optometry companies to still employ optical technicians and all our practices have lens edging facilities so glasses can be made up on site.
  • We donate old glasses to the Lions Club and actively support OGS (Optometry Giving Sight).
  • We are 100% Australian owned. All taxes and any profits stay in Australia.
