Vision correctioN options

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

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

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