Eyes on Buderim is a a small personalised optometry practice which aims to be a cut above the corporate branded eyecare providers by being more thorough and more personal. We were established in 2013.
Eye examinations are done solely by Graham Bohl our optometrist, not an assembly line of helpers. This continuity ensures subtle eye problems don’t get overlooked.
We pride ourself on our use of technology. Each test includes the very latest laser scanning OCT and digital retinal photography as standard. Corporate chains will charge up to $150 extra for this but we believe this is important for everyone so it is included in every test as standard. We also use the feather light iTouch tonometry (eye pressure measurement) so you don’t need to get a blast of air in your eyes.
Our designer glasses are a little different. If you get some glasses from us it is very unlikely that you will see the same glasses on someone else. They are mostly European and made to the highest standards and are covered by a 2 year warranty. We also have a budget and ‘no gap’ range when just a simple frame is required.
Graham Bohl Optometrist graduated optometry in 1991 and has worked on the Sunshine Coast since then. He has most recently worked in the main street of Caloundra from 1997 to 2012 and is excited to have set up Eyes on Buderim in 2013 so he can enjoy working in his own practice. On weekends Graham plays tennis (badly) and does some swimming (slowly these days).
