- The Vision Examination is the first step in achieving clear and comfortable vision. Assessing visual needs is as important as your eyesight. Our regular appointments are 40 minutes long to allow for thorough and unhurried examinations. We are comfortable testing children of all ages.
- Contact Lens Fitting is a subspecialty of our optometric team. We routinely fit and maintain all types of contact lenses, including rigid lenses for Keratoconus and abnormal corneas. We are contracted service providers of subsidised contact lens fitting to the Capital Coast and Lower Hutt DHBs.
- Diabetic Retinal Screening. We are a contracted service provider to Capital Coast Health for photoscreening examinations, and are proud of pioneering this award winning program. Ask your doctor to refer you should you need to access this service.
- Eye Pathology (including Sore or Red Eyes). We are able to examine your eyes and prescribe eye-drops when your eyes are sore or red and will refer you to specialist care when this is appropriate. Glaucoma and other eye diseases are screened for during our comprehensive routine examinations, but specific screening appointments can be arranged. If you are concerned about sudden changes in your vision (including Flashes or Floaters) please mention this when you make an appointment.
