Start A Healthy Year – Get Your Eyes Checked

Happy New Year from the team at Sydney Ophthalmic Specialists! A great way to start a healthy new year is to book in a comprehensive eye check with your eye doctor or optometrist.

Many eye problems do not have any symptoms in the initial disease stages, so it is important to have regular eye checks for eye disease prevention every one to two years. It is also important to have your children’s eyes checked.

We have seven ophthalmologists at Sydney Ophthalmic Specialists, so we can look after all of your eye needs. Each of our eye doctors are highly experienced, knowledgeable, friendly and caring.
