Businesses in Docklands - November 2015

29 Oct 2015

A wonderful year in Docklands

Local optometry practice Eyes On Docklands celebrates its first year in Docklands next month.

According to optometrist Sue Callahan, the last 12 months have been better than she hoped for the first year in business.

“We’ve been quite pleasantly surprised,” Ms Callahan said.

An optometrist for more than 20 years, Ms Callahan opened Docklands’ first optometric practice in December last year.

“It’s been fantastic so far,” Ms Callahan said. “It’s been busier than we expected and quite a good mix of residential and business people have come in to welcome us to the area.”

“We are very appreciative of everyone who has consulted with us during our first year in Docklands.”

Located on Bourke St, Eyes On Docklands is around the corner from the developing health precinct on Merchant St.

“It’s great that we have all the health services quite close together, with the physiotherapist, medical centre, and dentist nearby,” Ms Callahan said.

Offering the highest standard of care is at the forefront of Eyes on Docklands’ approach to eye health and the practice uses state-of-the-art equipment to examine eyes.

“Our OCT instrument will detect diabetes, glaucoma and age-related maculopathy (ARM) much earlier than other diagnostic tools,” Ms Callahan explained.

Apart from eye health, the practice also prides itself on offering the highest standard of service and it stocks a wide range of frames and sunglasses catering to all budgets.

“The difference with our independent practice is the personal approach we offer, and the aim to establish a relationship which encourages patients to return to us for their ongoing eye care and needs” she said. “We like to give a little more time to people.”

That personal approach has helped Eyes on Docklands quickly cement itself within the community.

“We have certainly got to know some local people who pop in regularly to say hello, so it’s nice to feel part of the Docklands community,” Ms Callahan said.

To celebrate its first year, Eyes On Docklands will be offering gift vouchers with purchases made in November and December.

Eyes on Docklands is located at Shop 5, 840 Bourke St. You can contact the practice on 9629 5495.
