Family Eyecare

At Ashburton Eyecare, we’ve been looking after the local community for ‘everything eyes’ since 1965. We see your whole family – you, your children and their grandparents – providing comprehensive eyecare services designed to meet the needs of every single patient.

Our team takes the time to listen to your concerns, learn your history and offer the best treatment advice. We’ll discuss your general health, family history and any past conditions in order to best address and manage your vision health.

We take the time to explain our findings in clear and simple language so that you fully understand your vision issues. You’ll feel confident that your vision and eye health is in the very best of hands.

Eye Consultations

Regular eye exams can detect early signs of disease and help save your vision.

Sometimes all that is needed are some glasses or contact lenses and then your vision is restored back to normal.  Common reasons for glasses or contact lenses include:

  • Myopia (short-sighted)
  • Hyperopia (long-sighted)
  • Astigmatism (a type of focusing error)
  • Presbyopia (I’m over 40 and need reading glasses!)

It’s easy to remember if you’re short-sighted – it means your ‘short-vision’ is clear. Long-sightedness is the other way around.

Many whole-body ailments can affect the eyes. The most common are diabetes and poorly controlled high blood pressure, but there are many others.

We use sophisticated equipment and our clinical expertise to detect these early changes, and ensure you get the best of care early on, so that the chance of losing vision later is minimised.

Glasses and contact lenses come in a wide range of designs, purposes and thicknesses. At Ashburton Eyecare, we’ll find you a customised solution to suit your particular need.
