An eye test will take between 45 minutes for an initial test to 30 minutes for a follow up. During this time we will test your vision, eye health and eye coordination and screen for eye diseases such as glaucoma and macula degeneration. We will listen to your concerns and take the time to explain your eyes to you, in understandable and actionable language. Read more
In addition to the eye test, a general eye care health check is included in all our comprehensive consultations. If eye health issues are found during this general health check our optometrists will perform further tests to diagnose and monitor specific eye conditions. Read more
Our optometrists are experienced in helping with some of the most complex of visual problems, such as those brought about by conditions such as autism, dyslexia and problems with reading. One in 5 children suffer from an undetected vision problem. Many of these conditions can be picked up in children at an early age. Read more

Our optometrists are experienced in fitting and managing patients with a wide variety of contact lenses, such as soft contact lenses, frequent replacement soft contact lenses and rigid, gas-permeable contact lenses. Special therapeutic, multifocal and cosmetic contact lenses also are available. Read more
Symptoms of dry eye include, itchiness (particularly in the corner of the eyes), stinging or burning, redness, tired eyes (and the feeling that they need to be closed to bring relief). In some instances they may also include occasional blurred vision and mucus around the eyelids. Read more
Behavioural Optometry is a different way of looking at vision. Rather than the number of letters a patient can see on a chart, a behavioural optometrist looks into how a patient’s visual system functions. Eyesight is seeing the car. Vision is getting across the road without being run over. Read more
