Strachan EyecarePlus offer up-to-date primary eye and vision care for the whole family, providing comprehensive, professional eye examinations and quality glasses, contact lenses and other optical appliances.
We are dedicated to providing excellence in all our levels of service, with our focus being for you to see as clearly and comfortably as possible, and looking and feeling great in your eyewear!
Greg and Sue Strachan have been providing the very best in caring and personalised eye care to people in the local area since 1982, and have established extensive referral networks with local Ophthalmologists (Specialist Eye Surgeons), GPs, Maternal and Child Health Centre Nurses, Teachers and other health care professionals.
This continues the family tradition of Optometry – Greg’s father, John Strachan, ran a very successful specialist contact lens practice in Collins Street Melbourne for many years which has now merged with our Balwyn practice.
Our special areas of interest are:
- Children’s Vision and Visually Related Learning Problems, including Developmental Visual Perceptual Assessments, and Vision Therapy programs.
Good grades begin with good vision!
- Behavioural Optometry and Vision Therapy.
To optimize vision for everyone…
- Contact Lenses, including specialist custom-made lenses, as well as disposable one day, multifocal, coloured and extended overnight wear contact lenses.
Change the way you see the world and how others see you!
Strachan EyecarePlus Optometrists are accredited associates of laser vision centres situated in East Melbourne and St Kilda Road. We believe that “co-managed care” between us, your regular primary eye care providers, and specialist Ophthalmic surgeons, enables the best possible quality of eye care.
In addition, we offer domiciliary visits, and are pleased to service Veterans’ Affairs patients. Our Optometrists have been conducting free Vision Screenings to local kindergartens for many years.
Strachan EyecarePlus is very pleased to support Optometry Giving Sight or OGS, an international organization established to eliminate global blindness due to uncorrected refractive error – simply the lack of access to an eye exam and a pair of glasses. We donate two dollars from every pair of complete new glasses ordered to help finance projects in remote parts of Australia and in countries like East Timor and India to supply glasses directly to people in need. OGS also funds training programs in Optometric care to local people in underdeveloped countries.
We have a collection box for ‘old’ glasses at each practice. These pre-loved glasses are used in overseas aid programs, so bring in any old glasses gathering dust in a drawer at home!
At Strachan EyecarePlus we are members of the EyecarePlus group, established by independent Optometrists of Australia to ensure strong combined buying power in order to be able to provide competitively priced optical appliances whilst maintaining the highest levels of clinical care.
We stock an extensive range of quality fashion frames and sunglasses to suit all lifestyles, as well as a comprehensive range of prescriptable safety glasses and sports eyewear, together with a full range of eyewear accessories and contact lens products.
We have an in-house lens fitting lab and use premium quality ophthalmic lenses. Our friendly trained staff will offer expert advice regarding both frame choice and the latest technology in lens design to ensure that your new spectacle lenses are giving you the best possible vision to suit your lifestyle needs as well as being as thin, light-weight and attractive as possible. And we will go that extra mile to find the perfect frame for you!
