Temporary Change of Practice Hours
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have made the decision to temporarily change our practice hours from Friday March 27.
During this time we will be holding an Eye Health Clinic to see patients with urgent eye and vision problems on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. We will be also available at this time for urgent glasses or contact lens collections.
If you have an urgent eye or vision problem please phone 0478 497 293 during normal business hours to make an appointment. Please also call this number or use the contact us form if you are having difficulty picking up glasses or contact lenses you have already ordered.
What is an Urgent Case?
- You are experiencing a sudden onset of vision problems.
- Have lost or broken your glasses and don’t have a functioning spare.
- You have eye health problems that require immediate ongoing care.
- Eye infection, eye pain, a foreign body in the eye, ingrowing eyelashes.
- You need more contact lenses.
Please don’t make an appointment if:
- You have cold or flu-like symptoms.
- If you or any household members are on COVID-19 quarantine.
- It is a routine matter which can wait until after the COVID-19 crisis.
For the safety of yourself and the community please put off routine eye checkups until the COVID-19 situation has settled.
We send all our patients and families our very best wishes at this unsettling time and look forward to the day when we can reopen our practice full-time.
Take care and stay safe.
Graham and Kim Bohl and the Eyes on Buderim Team.
Eyes on Buderim is 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.
We pride ourself on our use of technology. Each test includes the very latest laser scanning OCT and digital retinal photography 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 frames 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.
Our lenses incorporate the best and latest technology, and we have all the options for thinner, lighter, anti reflective lenses with or without tinting. If you need multifocals you have the option of the most intricately ground lenses to give you the widest fields of vision for the ultimate in visual comfort. And of course we have access to standard lenses if just a simple pair of glasses are all you need.
