Greg and Sue Strachan have been providing the very best in personalised eye care to people in the local area since 1982, continuing 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.

Good grades begin with good vision!
- Behavioural Optometry and Vision Therapy.
To optimize vision for everyone…
- Contact Lenses, including specialist custom-made lenses, OrthoK lenses for myopia control, as well as disposable one day, multifocal, coloured and overnight wear contact lenses.

- Myopia Control – many options are available here
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.
Strachan EyecarePlus have strongly supported Optometry Giving Sight or OGS for many years. More than 600 million people around the world are blind or vision impaired simply because they do not have access to eye examinations and glasses. OGS targets this need, training local eye health professionals and providing low cost consultations and glasses to those who may otherwise remain visually impaired. At Strachan EyecarePlus we have donated over $60,000 to this fantastic charity.
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. This means that lenses may be fitted to your own frame on the spot at our Blackburn practice! 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!
