Eye Examinations Ponsonby

Eye Examinations

Eye examinations are more complex than just reading letters on a chart. We structure our exams with the aim of providing you with superior eyecare and practical solutions. These exams can vary depending on your concerns, your age and health, as well as your occupation and family history. The experts at Occhiali Optometrists tailor each exam to the individual. 

Your examination will be performed by an experienced University of Auckland qualified optometrist. Occhiali Optometrists is also a member of the NZ Association of Optometrists and the Cornea and Contact Lens Society of NZ. We attend conferences nationally and internationally as well as subscribing to the latest industry publications to ensure we are always up to date.

You'll benefit from our up-to-the-minute knowledge on technological advancements in the field. Our procedures will ensure accuracy and the very best result for you. If you have a particular requirement for a hobby, sport or leisure activity we can help you find the best solution.
