We specialize in the following eye care services:

Dry Eye Treatment

Dry eyes can lead to a variety of painful symptoms that interfere with daily life, 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 optometrist offers 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.  We will custom design your dry eye therapy.

Scleral Lenses for Keratoconus

As keratoconus progresses, standard eyeglasses and soft contact lenses may not be able to provide clear or comfortable vision. When that happens, our Sydney optometrist 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.

Myopia Control

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 in Sydney, 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 contact lenses from CooperVision and ortho-K with Paragon CRT. Our optometrist will evaluate your child’s vision to recommend the best, personalized solution.
