The EyeCare Corner
Est: 1974


We aim to provide the best in eye care for all our clients. (or for you and your family). We take eye health seriously and believe that regular eye tests are important to detect disease and changes in your eyes. Our eye tests are comprehensive which means not just reading the letters and numbers… we look at the whole array of eye health and vision.

Some eye diseases do not have symptoms until too late such as glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration. For this reason, as part of routine eye examination, we have the latest technology in eye imaging to help diagnose and measure your eyes. Early detection of eye disease means earlier access to treatment before vision loss in most cases. We work closely with eye specialists via referral and co-management of eye conditions.
