We do more than just fit glasses

Ian Donald and our team of skilled and experienced optometrists and optical dispensers will provide you with the very best in eye care, and preventative eye health.

We’ve been treating generations of families in Manly since 1957.

We’d love to treat yours.

Early diagnosis of eye disease can save your eyesight

Did you know that many common eye diseases that can lead to blindness, such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, actually have no symptoms in their early stages?

An important part of every consultation at Ian Donald Optometrist is a thorough check of your eye health to detect early signs of eye diseases. In most cases, early detection and treatment can help reduce your risk for permanent vision loss.

We use state-of-the-art technology to get the very best picture of your eye health

With our state-of-the-art equipment, combined with years of experience, we are able to accurately diagnose and prevent eye diseases that may lead to blindness.

Our extensive testing ensures we get the very best picture of your eye health by checking for the following:

• refractive errors
• glaucoma
• cataracts
• age-related macular degeneration
• amblyopia
• diabetic retinopathy
• retinal detachment or tear

Our experienced dispensing team sets us apart from the rest

Our optical dispensing team have over 60 years combined experience behind them. It’s our experience that sets us apart.

You will be fitted with the right frames for your prescription and your face. The lenses for your glasses are all fitted on-site, which reduces your waiting period and also removes additional third-party costs.

If you’re prescribed contact lenses our dispensing team will teach you how to insert and remove them, as well as how to care for them.

We understand glasses and fashion

We know you like to be fashionable. As an independent practice, we are able to source a much wider range of frames from all around the world, providing you with greater choice.

From the fashion-forward trendsetters to old favourites, there will always be something to suit you.

What about the sunnies?

Sunglasses do a lot more than protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays and make you look really cool. They also provide you with the freedom to fully enjoy the outdoors, and lead an active life, all year round.

At Ian Donald Optometrist, we can custom-make every type of lens prescription into a pair of sunglasses, or sport specific goggles or glasses for you.

So regardless of your prescription you can still enjoy your morning swim or surf, play golf, ski or even just go for a run.

Your long-term eye health is our focus

Eye-health, and preventative eye health are our focus here at Ian Donald Optometrist

We will send you reminder notices for your annual check ups. Every check up will include a fast, non-invasive screening test to fully assess the health and function of your eyes, using our state-of-the-art technology.

Because we know you and your family’s eye health history we’ll make sure we keep a close eye on your eye health, and if necessary we will organise more regular check ups.

We’ve treated generations of families, and we look forward to treating yours too.
