Regular eye examinations are an important way of making sure that your eyes and visual system are healthy, and that your visual system has the right support to provide long-term clear and comfortable vision.

Your eye health is our top priority.
A regular comprehensive eye examination is recommended for everyone. Whether you are a spectacle wearer or not, ensuring that your eyes are free from sight threatening disease is crucial as many conditions do not present with symptoms, particularly in the early stages.
Not only will your standard of vision be assessed and an accurate optical prescription issued but an in depth evaluation of all ocular structures will be carried out in order to detect any diseases or abnormalities such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vascular disease and ocular tumours.
With the use of pupil dilation, advanced ophthalmic instrumentation and our specialist optometric care it is possible to detect problems earlier than ever before.
As a matter of fact, Lawrence I-Care Optometrists were the first practice in the region to invest in digital imaging (way back in the early 90’s) and nearly thirty years later we continue to invest in new technology such as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for Macular conditions and Glaucoma, as well as Infra-Red Meibography for Blepharitis.
Continual investment in the latest diagnostic equipment is one part of the equation with clinical skills being equally important. At Lawrence I-Care all of our clinicians continue to develop their professional skills on an ongoing basis.
So why not make the important step of ensuring that your eye health stays in optimal condition by booking your appointment today?
Tailored for your eyes
Many people don’t realise that they are suitable for contact lenses!
Our contact lens ethos is simple. We fit contact lenses to provide the optimum blend of both comfort and visual performance whilst maintaining excellent ocular health.
To meet these objectives we assess the anterior surfaces of the eye in detail using digital topographical mapping and anterior segment imaging (our Medmont E300 Corneal Topographer that we use for contact lens fitting is considered to be the 'GOLD' standard for fitting speciality contact lenses).
The tear film which is responsible for keeping the eye moist and lubricated is also evaluated using a range of techniques.
Base line symptoms of dryness are evaluated and generally recorded using specialist questionnaires and grading systems. This permits early detection of ocular surface change thereby keeping patients comfortable in their lenses long term.
In addition to soft contact lenses in both daily and monthly modalities, we also fit specialist contact lenses for patients with complex optical prescriptions, history of contact lens intolerance and diseases of the cornea such as Keratoconus.
For patients considering laser refractive surgery or those who desire freedom from both spectacles and contact lenses we also offer corneal refractive therapy.
