About Us

We have been serving our community and it's outlying areas for over 30 years. The practice is independently owned and operated by our long-standing optometrist Evan Faulkner.

We offer comprehensive eye exams as well as paediatric exams and emergency care so patients can enjoy the best vision possible at any age. Our team has the training and experience to assess, diagnose, and treat a wide range of conditions that can affect your eyes, including glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
Our staff assist with booking appointments, ordering contacts, and provide advice for the appropriate selection of lenses and frames suitable for each patient's individual needs - considering both the prescription and their personal taste in fashion. We are dedicated to providing the highest standard of care and improving the long-term visual health of every patient that we see.
