An optometrist is the primary health care professional for the eye and eye health. It is the role of an optometrist to examine, diagnose, treat, and manage eye disease, injuries, and disorders of the complete visual system as well as identify related systemic conditions affecting the eye. If required, an optometrist will prescribe optical correction such as glasses or contact lenses to correct any visual difficulties.

An optometrist should be the first person you contact if you have any concerns about your vision or your eye health.

We are pleased to have one of our optometrists, Martina Fellmann, fully trained as a Therapeutically Qualified optometrist, which means she can prescribe medication for glaucoma, infections, or other eye-related problems.

Sarah Lang, another one of our fantastic optometrists, is working towards becoming qualified in Behavioural Optometry.

With such a variety of skills amongst our optometrists, you're sure to receive the best possible eye care.

All of our optometrists complete Certified Professional Development every year to ensure they are up to date with technology and health changes to give you the best eye care possible.
