Our practice was established in the State Theatre Building in 1932 and has included well known optometrists, Penhryn Thomas (contact lens pioneer) 1942-1968 and Professor Charles McMonnies (contact lens specialist, researcher) 1968 -2007. Dr Gavin Boneham (PhD) joined in 1997 and now owns and runs the practice.
In February 2010 we moved to the historic Dymocks Building.
Our goal has always been to provide personal service in a friendly professional manner.
We aim to give our patients the best possible optometric services through our dedication to professional education and providing state of the art equipment combined with the latest clinical techniques. Just recently we have established a facebook account and plan to use this to update our patients on the latest products, care of contact lenses and research in optometry.
Our practice has been, and continues to be, involved with the education of under-graduate and post-graduate optometrists.
If there’s anything you need to ask or would like to book an appointment don’t hesitate to email us at email@example.com. Hope to hear from you soon.

This is a video on Orthokeratology which is a non surgical alternative to refractive laser surgery. The effects are completely non-invasive and reversible, unlike any surgical option, and the patient has the freedom of not having to wear spectacles or contact lenses during the day.
