Eye Test

Perfect vision doesn’t necessarily mean your eyes are healthy. Early detection of any eye conditions improves the outlook for successful treatment. Your optometrist Newmarket recommends annual eye health check-ups to maintain good vision. Many eye problems can only be detected during a thorough eye exam. Our optometrists and opticians use top-of-the-line diagnostic equipment that can detect even the smallest changes in your vision and eye health.

Full eye exams with our experienced Newmarket vision specialists start from $78. Book an eye test today, Our comprehensive eye exam includes a prescription check as well as an eye health check for raised eye pressure, glaucoma and cataract.

Lenses And Prescription Glasses NZ

A pair of single vision stock lenses with antiglare coating starts from only $169. We have a wide range of frames including designer frames. We use high quality Hoya brand lenses.

The New Zealand government provides a spectacle subsidy for children under the age of 16 if their parent/guardian holds a valid community services card. This subsidy covers eye exams and prescription glasses.

You may be eligible for government funding for your contact lenses if you meet certain criteria such as high myopia or hyperopia or have an eye condition such as keratoconus. Our optometrist Newmarket will be able to advise you if you qualify.
