We depend on our vision in many ways. Without healthy vision, our ability to work, play, drive or even recognise our friends or family members can be affected.
Our optometrists - Jenny, Diane & Victoria - are all qualified to prescribe medication to treat many eye conditions such as sore and red eyes, as well as infections and perform foreign body removal. We are ACC registered so if you have an eye problem we can usually see you quickly and prescribe appropriate treatment or refer you to a specialist if necessary. We can also do home and hospital visits for the house-bound.
Complete visual and eye health examination
We like to do things differently at Grant & Douglas Optometry & Eyewear.
To start with, your complete eye exam is carried out by the Optometrist. Our eye examinations are a comprehensive process to assess your vision and the ongoing health of your eyes. The tests, photographs and analysis of the results are all completed by the Optometrist, as they are the trained professionals.
We screen for many eye diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma and cataracts, and we also offer colour vision screening and low vision assessments.
Many factors can affect our eyesight, and having a family member with eye disease can make you more prone to having that condition as well. Eye disease can appear at any time and is difficult to detect without a proper eye examination.
We believe investing in optometry equipment is the way of the future. New equipment often allows us to detect problems in your eyes prior to showing any symptoms.
Your eye examination includes complimentary Digital Retinal Photography. We will send a report to your doctor (if you would like us to) at no extra charge.
We have recently invested in an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomographer). This device can help the Optometrist detect the early onset of a variety of eye conditions and diseases such as Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma and Diabetic Retinopathy (the top three diseases known to cause blindness).
"You can quote me as being very, very pleased with the treatment and service I received before and after my recent cataract operation. I can certainly see better. Everything went really well and the glasses I now have are spot on. I’m also delighted with the new sunglass lenses you organised for me – about 100 times better and much clearer vision than the old ones".
