Regardless of physical condition or age, it is essential to have regular eye examinations to help catch any eye problem before it progresses. This gives you the best chance to correct or prevent the condition from worsening.
Our optometrist will test your vision to determine the power required for your eyeglasses as well as check for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.
Vision is the single most important sense when it comes to learning how to read and write. Regular eye testing from pre-school years right through to high school and tertiary level studies allows us to optimise our ability to learn.
We love seeing the reactions of our patients when they try their brand new spectacles for the first time. Great spectacles are the result of finding the right frames and choosing the best lenses to match those frames and your visual needs.
Our spectacles frames and sunglasses are sourced from quality suppliers, and range from high fashion to reliable classics. We have a great range of frames for ladies, men, and kids. We can supply prescription safety eyewear, and can supply frames for sporting shooters.
We believe that you should get great enjoyment and satisfaction from using your spectacles purchased at The Eye Shop. We strive to ensure that your glasses look good, fit well, give you great vision and visual comfort, and back that up with service for the life of the glasses.
Don’t want to wear glasses? Contact lenses are a great alternative. And with so many varieties to choose from, nearly everyone can wear them. Daily disposable lenses make wearing contacts a breeze — wear them once and throw them away.
We find that contact lenses can be worn with a lot of flexibility – from everyday use, to part time for sport, work, or social needs, right through to just being there for special occasions like weddings.
We fit contact lenses from all the world’s leading manufacturers. After your initial examination with us, we can determine what contact lenses would best suit your needs. If you have never worn contact lenses, we can organise time for you to begin your learning experience, teaching you handling and caring for lenses. For experienced wearers looking for a change or to recommence lens wear, we can introduce you to some newer or perhaps different designs and materials, with the aid of free trial lenses.
