Eye Catchers Optical

Chatswood’s Oldest Optometry Practice

Our vision is one of the most precious things we have. Yet many of us put little thought and care into taking care of them, with regular eye exams and tests to detect anomalies and detect eye diseases or conditions that could cause irreparable damage if left ignored. Here at Eyecatchers Optical, we pride ourselves on providing the best optometry services in Sydney. 

Established in Chatswood over 60 years ago, we are proud to be one of Chatswood and the Northern Beaches oldest optometry practices. Since then, Eye Catchers Optical’s family-run practice has been managed by experienced optometrists and husband-wife duo, Paul and Lyndal Robson, who have more than 35 years of experience in the optical industry. 

Proudly independent, our optometry practice has a central focus on providing attentive service, tailored to what is best for each individual. We attribute our longevity to our honesty, integrity, accuracy and a passion for what we do, above all else. 

Our Chatswood based optometry clinic is equipped with modern diagnostic instrumentation, giving you quality care in eye health, digital retinal scans, visual field testing, macula and glaucoma assessments, contact lens fitting and optical dispensing. We are passionate about helping you life without discomfort and with the best vision possible and do all we can to give a thorough, friendly and timely service. 

We all look forward to being of service to you! We are located just along from Chatswood Chase @ Level 1 / 379 Victoria Ave, corner of Archer St (enter via Archer St).

Opening Hours: Monday to Friday 8.30am – 5pm & Thursdays till 7pm. For an appointment please call 02 9412 4596.
