Eye care

Our Practice

At Stuart Macfarlane Optometrist we provide comprehensive eye examinations, assessing your vision as well as examining the health of your eyes. Using up-to-date specialised equipment, we look for evidence of eye diseases such as glaucoma and cataracts, and can also detect ocular signs of general disease such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

Our optometrists have the ability to prescribe eye drops and ointments when necessary. Conditions such as conjunctivitis and dry eye can be assessed and treated as required.

We stock an extensive range of quality frames meaning you can choose from the latest in fashion, or a frame that best suits your budget.

Our frames come with an exclusive 12-month warranty, giving you an added level of confidence and peace of mind. You can also be assured that our frames and lenses are competitively priced. We also offer savings on additional pairs of spectacles purchased (conditions apply).

At Stuart Macfarlane Optometrist, we can assist you to become a successful and regular contact lens wearer. Whether you want to change your look or just appreciate the convenience of not having to wear spectacles, contact lenses could be the answer for you. As specialists in contract lenses, we will assess your eyes to find the best lenses to suit your individual needs.

Our team of dedicated and knowledgeable staff, with a combined industry experience of over 50 years, will ensure that all your eye care needs are met. Each time you visit Stuart Macfarlane Optometrist the same friendly and familiar faces will greet you.

Stuart Macfarlane Optometrist has been providing professional optometric care to the Logan community for over 25 years. The practice has always been independently owned and operated, allowing for much greater scope in providing personalised care.

Our goal at Stuart Macfarlane Optometrist is to provide the highest quality service and value in a professional and friendly atmosphere. We achieve this by building trust through friendship and respect for the individual, recognising the importance of optimal vision to quality of life, and a commitment to continuing education, advanced technology and teamwork.


Care Tips for your Glasses

Take a few minutes each day to follow these simple care tips - they'll prolong the life of your glasses.

Inspect
Check your glasses frequently for signs of wear. If a hinge screw is loose, visit your Optometrist.

Carefully check the alignment of your glasses while standing in front of a mirror. If they seem misaligned, return to your optometrist for a frame adjustment.

Inspect the lenses frequently for scratches. Scratches can impede vision.

Clean
Clean your glasses frequently as follows:

  • Spray each side of your lenses with a lens cleaner spray.
  • Wipe with a tissue.
  • Never use a tissue when the lenses are dry as this can scratch the lenses.
  • For touch-up lens cleaning when lens cleaner is not available, use a microfibre lens cleaning cloth.
  • Donít use clothing to wipe your glasses.

Protect
Keep your glasses in a protective case when you're not wearing them. If you've lost your case, purchase a replacement.

Always use both hands to remove your glasses. If your case isn't around, leave the temples open and place your glasses upside down (resting on the top of the Eyewire) on a flat surface in a safe place.

Other Care Tips

  • Rinse and clean perspiration from your glasses as soon as possible.
  • Sweat and skin oils can damage frame finishes and lens coatings.
  • If you use hair spray, apply it before putting on your glasses. If this isn't possible, shield the lenses with your hand to avoid spraying them. Hair spray can damage expensive lens coatings.

Following these care tips will keep your eyewear in great shape for years. But don't rely on just one pair of glasses. Having more than one pair of glasses will guarantee that you have a back-up in case your favourite glasses get damaged.
