Our opticians and dispensing staff have years of experience catering to our smallest customers, and we believe very strongly in educating parents for the betterment of the child.

What does a typical visit look like?

First of all, you’ll call or email to book your appointment. Once you arrive before your appointment time, you’ll meet with one of our dispensing opticians. They’ll speak to you about previous visits, or any eye health issues you have previously experienced. Then you’ll meet with one of our optometrists who will conduct the full eye exam. They we carry out a number of exams over 30 minutes that will give a full picture of your eye health and your optical prescription.

Once you’ve finished your test, the optometrist will discuss recommendations with you, before bringing you out to speak to our dispensing optician (DO). The DO will speak to you about the results of your eye exam, and will discuss any solutions or recommendations. They’ll also talk to you about lenses, tints and frames (including frames that would fit your prescription) to ensure you have options for the best of eye care.

We’ll arrange a follow up appointment if needed, and will be available to you for any post appointment questions you may have, either over the phone, via email or in person.
