Vision correction Options
What do you need?

During your eye examination our Optometrists, John and Keith,  will discuss various forms of vision correction with you.  This could include distance or reading glasses,  specialized computer lenses (extender readers),  graduated lenses,  transition lenses, prescription sunglasses, prescription safety glasses or contact lenses.  

In today’s modern world, with us heavily reliant on computers and devices, it may be that you require more than type of spectacle correction.

Many forms of correction are available in clear lenses, blue Light filters, anti-reflection coatings, photochromatic lenses (which alters with varying lighting conditions) and polarised lenses.

Contact lenses are available in many forms from daily, fortnightly and monthly disposable options as well as monovision corrections and multifocal contact lenses for our patients that require both distance and near correction.

We encourage you to take time to think about your vision needs prior to your visit and discuss these needs with John and Keith.  It is helpful, prior to you visit,  to measure how far away you sit from you computer screens.  We can use this information to select the most appropriate lens type for your workstation.
