We specialize in the following eye care services:
Dry Eye Diagnosis and Treatment
Dry eyes interfere with daily tasks, such as reading, using a computer, and driving. Because the cause of dry eye syndrome is highly individual, it is essential to visit our optometrist in Sydney for a specialized dry eye exam to identify the root cause of your dry eyes. Once we determine the cause, we will recommend the best personalized dry eye treatment to alleviate your irritated eyes.
Our Sydney optometrists offer several cutting-edge dry eye treatments, such as iLux® for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction, Antares to diagnose the origins of dry eye, and tear osmolarity to analyze tear composition. Our office and online store offer the latest dry eye products that are not found at most pharmacies.
Scleral Lenses for Keratoconus
Keratoconus is a corneal eye disease which causes progressive vision loss due to a misshapen cornea. As keratoconus progresses, standard eyeglasses and soft contact lenses may not be able to provide clear or comfortable vision. When that happens, our Sydney optometrists may recommend rigid gas permeable scleral lenses, a type of specialty contact lens made to fit irregular corneas. Many people with a corneal disorder experience supreme comfort wearing scleral lenses. We specialize in fitting scleral lenses and will work patiently with you until a smooth fit is found.
Prescription eyewear is the standard treatment for myopia, commonly called nearsightedness. However, when children have progressive myopia that worsens
continuously requiring a higher vision prescription after every eye exam, it’s a sign that they may be a suitable candidate for myopia control, which can slow or stop nearsightedness from deteriorating. A variety of methods of myopia control are available, such as single-use MiSight soft contact lenses from CooperVision and orthokeratology with rigid lenses such as Paragon CRT. Our optometrist will evaluate your child’s vision to recommend the best, personalized solution.
