Quinn & Co. Eyecare
There’s more to healthy eyes than having 20/20 vision. We provide comprehensive eye health assessments as well as vision tests.
Going to the optometrist isn’t just important if you think you need glasses to correct your vision – it’s also about assessing and protecting your eye health.
What makes us different?
Even if you don’t think you have a vision problem, you should still have regular eye check-ups. It’s especially important to have your eye health assessed if you have a family history of eye problems, chronic health conditions like diabetes or you are on certain medications that can affect your vision. Think of it like going to the dentist. Detecting problems early, and treating them properly, will save you and your family a great deal of stress, pain, worry, and of course, money in the long run.
Good vision is essential for your everyday wellbeing. Seeing well enables you to learn, work, and have fun doing what you love. Too often, people compromise lifestyle to account for poor vision.
As your trusted eyecare professionals, we will strive to improve your eye health through the provision of comprehensive eye examinations, and help you to achieve optimised vision that is:
Protected: from the sun’s harmful UV and blue light exposure when using digital devices
Sharp: even in low lighting conditions, so you can enjoy a range of activities with more ease.
Clear: by reducing annoying reflections and glare and in turn creating a more attractive look.
Comfortable: by eliminating eyestrain and poor posture through appropriate lens choice.
At Quinn & Co. Eyecare, we have a strong clinical focus, which means we invest in advanced diagnostic equipment, and our appointments are 30-40 minutes to ensure you and your eyes are getting the attention they deserve.
