Does your child often squint, look at objects very closely, or is struggling to look at things far away? If so, these might be signs of myopia (short sightedness).

Today, most myopic children wear standard single vision lenses, which only corrects short sightedness. At the Health Hub, we have Essilor® Stellest™ lenses that aim to not only correct myopia but also control its progression. 80% of learning occurs through vision, and as our children progress through school, there is never a better time for an eye health check-in.

Our optical practice

We provide quality eye care using specialised equipment to monitor your eye health. Our optometrists use specialised retinal imaging equipment to monitor the health of your eyes, including checks for ocular disease, cataracts and glaucoma.

Eye care solutions such as contact lenses and optical accessories, and bulk billing for eye tests are also available. We have over 2,000 frames and brand name sunglasses for you to choose from, accommodating for a wide range of preferences, styles and budgets for the whole family.

When to see an optometrist

It’s recommended to have an eye test with an optometrist once every two years or sooner if you notice your vision failing. Vision deterioration can present itself through straining your eyes when reading, driving or using computers and frequent headaches. Medical conditions such as diabetes may also affect your sight.

Children’s eyesight

A healthy childhood should include regular eye tests. If you notice your child squinting their eyes when reading or watching tv, excessive tearing, eye rubbing or if they complain of painful eyes, it may be due to eye related issues.

Should you need glasses, we will guide you through the frame selection process and organise any additional tests as required and if necessary prescribe glasses specific to your visual needs.

How do I adjust to multifocal lenses?

See answer

Getting used to a new pair of multifocal lenses sometimes takes time to adjust to, especially if this is your first pair.

Here are some tips that may help make it easier for you:

  • Wear your new glasses as much as possible. This will encourage your eyes to adapt to your new lenses.
  • If difficult to wear initially, try wearing the new glasses at home in a comfortable and familiar environment to help build confidence.
  • Try not to switch back to your old glasses. This can affect the progress you have made with your new multifocals.
  • Move your head when looking around, not just your eyes. Point your nose to where you want to see as the centre of a multifocal lens is the clearest.
  • If after 2 weeks, you are still having trouble adapting to your multifocal glasses, please return to the Health Hub where our staff will be more than happy to help find a solution.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, we are here to help.
