Eye Tests

An eye exam involves a series of tests to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases. We may use a variety of instruments, shine bright lights directly at your eyes and request that you look through an array of lenses, but these are all necessary tests to determine the health of your eyes.

An eye exam helps detect eye problems at their earliest stage — when they're most treatable. Regular eye exams gives us a chance to help you correct or adapt to vision changes and provide you with tips on caring for your eyes.

Even if you are not aware of any problems you should have your eyes tested every 2 years. The eye test is a regular health check, which can detect underlying health problems as well as changes in your vision. It may need to be more frequent depending on you age and medical history.

Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are an excellent choice for nearly anyone who needs vision correction and doesn't want to wear glasses full time or undergo surgery.

If you want to wear contact lenses to correct your eyesight, you must start by consulting an eyecare practitioner for a fitting. Only registered optometrists, contact lens opticians and medical practitioners can fit contact lenses, so you've come to the right place.

Fitting includes discussing your visual and lifestyle requirements. We will determine if your eyes are healthy and if you are suitable for lens wear. We will also take measurements of your eyes to find the best lens type, fit and vision, before trialling lenses with you.


Lenses or glasses are more popular than ever, despite recent innovations in contact lenses and vision correction surgery. Glasses have become quite stylish as fashion accessories, especially among fans of high end designers. Many people choose frames the same way they choose shoes or handbags — selecting different colours and styles to match their wardrobes.

New eyeglass frame styles continually are being introduced. Innovations include wood and bamboo frame materials and bold shapes, colours and designs in both plastic and metal frames.

As we are an independent optician we source our lenses from many suppliers to suit out customer needs. Find out more about our preferred lens companies Essilor, Hoyavision and Zeiss.
