Sports & Safety Eyewear
Most brands like Bolle and Oakley carry a sporting range designed for activities like fishing, cycling and golf. For safety sports wear designed for ball or impact sports such as Soccer and Rugby - we carry Progear and Liberty Sport. If contact lenses are not an option for you, it is essential to have a pair of properly made sport-safe eyewear to protect your eyes from injury that can occur particularly from ball sports. We also supply safety eyewear for work environments that require proper protection. Our lenses are made from a thicker polycarbonate material to be more durable than standard lenses.
Lenses by Carl Zeiss
We only use top quality German lenses by Carl Zeiss. We believe in only the best quality when it comes to your health and your vision, to ensure your eyes are getting the best treatment they can.
Sunglass level UV protection in clear ZEISS lenses. The skin, eyes and area around the eyes are very sensitive to UV radiation.Most of us know that UV radiation harms the skin, causing photoaging, wrinkles and in severe cases, skin cancer. Although it's invisible, long-term UV exposure can cause various eye diseases such as cataracts, macular degeneration and accelerated ageing of the tissue surrounding the eyes.
UV rays between 380 and 400 nanometres are responsible for most UV-related eye damage. For this reason health organisations recommend protection up to 400 nanometres. Currently up to 80% of clear lenses globally do not offer full UV protection.
Zeiss UVProtect Technology sets an industry benchmark by offering full protection up to 400 nanometres in clear lenses - the same UV protection as premium sunglasses. Click here to learn more.

Over glasses? Try Contact Lenses!
If you are an existing contact lens wearer or have worn lenses in the past there have been significant changes to contact lens technology over the last few years. There are a new generation of soft contact lenses made of a material called silicone hydrogel. These new lenses allow 5-6 times more oxygen to the cornea and have a special wetting agent. This combination gives the wearer longer lasting comfort.
If you have dry eyes and have struggled with contact lenses in the past then these lenses are a must try. Patients with astigmatism can also try toric silicone hydrogel disposable lenses with improved comfort and stability of vision. There are now several disposable multifocals lenses on the market suitable for people who require extra help with near vision.
Book an appointment today for a contact lens fitting consultation (fee applies), and you can take home a free trial to try in your own environment.
