About Eye Academy

Style. Expertise. Care. Health.

You may assume all opticians are the same, and most are, but we are very different. 

At Eye Academy, we are renowned for our clinical knowledge and luxury eyewear. We offer a range of appointments from a basic eye examination to specialised examinations that we individually tailor to your specific needs. New patients are often blown away by the thoroughness of the eye examination, the quality of vision we can help them achieve, the beautiful practice and the friendly welcome.

We continuously invest in cutting edge technology to ensure we can provide the most up to date screening and investigative techniques. Including being one of few opticians in the country offering 4D Optical Coherence Tomography scanning.

We tailor every eye examination, pair of spectacles and lenses specifically for you and your individual needs, ensuring you get the most thorough eye care and most beautiful, comfortable glasses with the very sharpest vision. 

Eye Academy - Care, service, and style.

Eye Academy's Opticians

Our Opticians

Our skilled clinicians and clinical imaging technology has earned us the respect of our ophthalmic surgical colleagues and enabled us to offer a clinical service akin to a private hospital and rarely if ever found in traditional opticians.

All of our optometrists are specialists in their field and have over ten years of experience. They constantly keep up with the latest theories and scientific research. Some of them undertake sessional work in Hospital Eye Departments and have broad experience in managing both common and non-common ocular conditions.

Our Dispensers

At Eye Academy, we recognise that measuring and fitting spectacles is a technical art (known as spectacle dispensing) and required years of training. All too often we hear of customer experiences at other opticians whereby they have been dealt with a retail assistant with minimal training and the customer often knows more about the lenses than the so-called professional!

Here at Eye Academy, your dispensing experience will be handled by one of highly skilled and experienced dispensing staff. We also equip our team with the most up to date, accurate dispensing tools. Visit us in your local practice to find out more.
