Comprehensive Eye Examinations
An eye examination is not just a simple precursory step towards getting a pair of glasses but providing proper vision care. It requires much more than just creating a prescription. Our exams are always comprehensive as early detection and prevention is the forefront of our philosophy. Our practice is equipped with the latest examination and diagnostic equipment that allows us to view and capture images of your eyes from front-to back which are typically found in hospital and ophthalmic/surgical settings.
Imaging: Anterior & Posterior Segment Imaging, OCT Scans, Corneal Topography
Common Conditions: Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism, Amblyopia
Full Scope Medical
Our eye health most often provides early warning signs for systemic diseases but a lot of times these are only examined as an afterthought. Our experience and training combined with our range of diagnostic and imaging equipment allows us to identify, diagnose, treat and manage a wide range of eye conditions that extends beyond the routine care. Also by working closely with GPs, ophthalmologists and other allied health professions, we ensure we give a holistic approach to not only your eye health but overall health care.

Children's Eye Exam
Many vision problems in children don’t have obvious signs and symptoms, hence why 1 in 4 children between the ages of 5 and 12 suffer from an undiagnosed vision problems which affects their educational performance. So it is important children have regular eye tests as early detection is the key to good vision since vision problems respond well when corrected during the growth and development of a child’s visual system.
We advise on good visual habits for long term goals and this may include discussion about correct working distances to screens, regular breaks from computers and gaming devices, and exercises that promote flexibility in the visual system.
Common Conditions: Myopia, Hyperopia, Astigmatism, Amblyopia, Strabismus, Binocular Vision Abnormalities
