See better. Look perfect.

We have just the right frame for you

Because we are an independent Optometry practice, we are able to source a huge range of frames from all around the world. From the fashion-forward trendsetters to old favourites, there will be something to suit you. Just as your eyes enable you to see other people, so they are often the first things people see about you.

Your glasses help you see - and you’ll look great too

Our dispensers will provide you with the best correction for your vision, but they’ll also help you look great.

‘When choosing glasses it’s a combination of what you like, and what will fit your prescription.’ – Ian Donald

You have to like the look of your glasses or lenses, but they also have to be practical, and efficient. Our experienced dispensers understand that the overall look is especially important to first-time glasses wearers, and they work closely with you to ensure they have a total understanding of your lifestyle needs.

We fit glasses fit for you, and you only

Our on-site lab fits your prescription up by hand. All of our glasses are custom-made and individually checked against your prescription.

Frames are carefully selected for fit and functionality. Lenses are ground and shaped to fit the frame and your eyes. And the finished product is hand-fitted to your face, to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness.

Our lenses are among the thinnest, lightest and flattest in the world. They are scratch-resistant and can be enhanced with tinting, polarisation or UV protection.

The importance of sunglasses

Sunglasses are not a fashion fad. They are essential in preventing eye damage caused by the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

Just as sunburn can lead to premature ageing of the skin and skin cancer, your eyes too can suffer from ‘sunburn’, which causes cataracts and eventual blindness.

And of course, being in Manly, we have a fabulous selection of sunglasses in store, including the following designer brands.

  • Anne et Valentin
  • Celine
  • Chloe
  • Garrett  Leight
  • Marni
  • Maui Jim
  • Mexx
  • Moscot
  • Oakley
  • Persol
  • Prada
  • RayBan

Of course there are times when you will want to whip off those glasses and glam up with a pair of contact lenses    We keep an extensive range of contacts in store.

No matter what your vision needs are, we have a custom-made solution

Sick of constantly changing your glasses or never having the correct pair on hand?

Whether you’d like multifocal transition lenses so you can see clearly in any situation with the one pair of glasses, or you’d prefer a separate pair of reading glasses and some prescription sunnies for driving, we have a range of lens options for your every need.

As well as single vision lenses for short or long distances, we also can prescribe progressive lenses, bifocals, trifocals and computer glasses.

We help you stay fit!

We also stock the latest in sports prescription technology, designed to make your favourite sports or lifestyle clearer, safer and more enjoyable.

We can custom-make goggles or glasses for your favourite sport, whether you’re into swimming, cycling, skiing, golfing, tennis, running, rowing – or all of the above!

We help you to stay safe

Occupational hazards at your workplace could threaten your eyes and damage your vision.

If you don’t wear the right eye protection for your job, you could lose your sight.
