Our Eye Care Clinic

20161206_121820_001Welcome to our online Practice! We started out serving Sydney residents in 1975 at 247 Charlotte St and moved to our current location at 117 Welton St in 1990. In 2015, Dr Shaun MacInnis took over the practice to promote modern eye care in Sydney. He and our eye care staff are here to care for all of your vision needs. We handle everything from adult and children's eye exams and hard-to-fit contact lenses, to eye emergencies, treatment of eye diseases and co-management of eye surgery such as LASIK.
