Age-Related Macular Degeneration

MD is a disease associated with ageing that gradually destroys central vision. Central vision occurs at the macular on the retina, at the back of the eye. While there is presently no cure for MD, there are steps that you can take to prevent or slow the progress of the disease.


A cataract is an opacity or clouding of the lens inside the eye, stopping light from reaching the back of the eye, causing blurred vision. Symptoms of cataract may include painless gradual decrease in vision, increased sensitivity to glare and even double vision. UV protection and special tints can help slow developments of the cataract.

Blepharitis Is a common eye condition that causes an inflammation of the eyelids. Commonly occurs when tiny oil glands near the base of the eyelashes become clogged, causing irritation and redness. A daily eye-lid cleaning routine can help control the symptoms. Medicated solutions and wipes are available to treat Blepharitis.

Myopia (short sightedness)

Short sightedness (also known as myopia) is a common eye condition that causes distant objects to appear blurred. Usually treated or corrected with prescription glasses, contact lenses or laser surgery.

Children’s Vision Examination

A child’s development and learning ability can be affected by problems in seeing or processing visual information. A child can be taught to improve vision skills by use of spectacles and/or by optometric vision training.

Diabetes Examination

The health of the retina is very dependent on a good blood supply to the eye. Diabetes compromises this circulation and can damage the retina. Variable blood sugar can cause early fluctuation in vision. A detailed examination of the retina is part of a full eye test and is an important component of ongoing management of diabetes.

Keratoconus is a progressive eye condition which causes thinning of the cornea, the front surface of the eye. This causes the cornea to protrude forward developing an irregular cone-like shape, which can lead to significant visual distortion. Early cases of Keratoconus may be managed simply with spectacles. As the condition progresses, rigid gas permeable contact lenses are required, as these provide a more regular front surface to the eye. In cases where the Keratoconus is so advanced and it cannot be managed with contact lenses, corneal grafting may be required.

Contact Lens Assessment & Fitting

We fit RGP (Hard) contact lenses, astigmatic contact lenses, disposable one day, monthly, multifocal, coloured and overnight contact lenses.
