An independent Melbourne optometrist providing truly personalised advice

Many eye conditions have no noticeable symptoms, so even if you think you have perfect vision it’s vital to get your eyes tested on a regular basis, particularly as you get older or spend a lot of time in front of screens.

It's an even better idea to get an eye examination from a trusted Melbourne Optometrist where you can receive independent advice, advanced eye care technology and a personalised approach.

A thorough eye examinations achieves the best results

On top of being a true people person, Peter takes his time doing your Eye Examination. He will record a detailed eye history and discuss your current eye health, including any particular conditions or symptoms you may be experiencing.
