It is a very common condition also occurring in younger patients, causing many day-to-day complications in everyday life. Contact us now for help with your short-sightedness.
Dry Eye Management: we can prescribe targeted treatments to reduce the symptoms and irritations that are caused by dry eye.
Behavioural Optometrist Services: our optometrists are able to diagnose whether your child’s vision needs more than just glasses and can investigate their visual skills and visual learning. This can help how they learn and their day-to-day life.
A Huge Selection of Eyeglasses: with over 1,000 frames for you to choose from, our staff will help you find a pair that you feel comfortable wearing, and that will suit your personal style.

What is Behavioural Optometry?
Have you or your child ever had an eye test that you felt didn’t quite solve the problem?
This may be because some of the key elements required for good vision may have been overlooked.
Behavioural Optometry looks deeper at the visual system, assessing how easily your eyes and brain work together at distance and near when doing everyday tasks like driving, reading and using your phone. How well they are able to maintain focus and alignment, and how you process the information that you see.
Head over to our behavioural optometry page for info on all the different types of eye conditions that can benefit from a behavioural optometric eye assessment.
