Eye Care

If you are experiencing any eye related concerns please call us to book in a comprehensive eye test.

The prevention of eye problems or diseases is best managed through your regular eye test.

Please do not reuse daily disposable lenses and remember to disinfect multiple-use lenses properly.

If you are not well, it is best not to wear contact lenses as it increases the risk of eye infection.

If it is more convenient for you we can post contact lenses and spectacles to you or a third party.
