Stuart Macfarlane studied optometry at the Queensland University of Technology and subsequently obtained a distinction in Ocular Therapeutics from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. A member of the Contact Lens Society of Australia, until national registration in 2010 he was a board member of the Optometrists Board of Queensland. He was subsequently appointed an optometry panel member of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). Since 2012 he has been a panel member of the national Professional Services Review (PSR). The PSR protects patients and the community by reviewing and examining possible inappropriate practice by practitioners. He was appointed the optometry panel member of the Determining Authority in 2017. Stuart was also in the inaugural group of Queensland optometrists to complete post-graduate therapeutic certification to allow the use of diagnostic and therapeutic drugs. This has enabled him since 2004 to write prescriptions for eye-drops such as antibiotics and anti-inflammatories for the treatment of ocular conditions such as allergy and conjunctivitis. PBS prescriptions for glaucoma drops are able to be written in conjunction with a co-management plan with an ophthalmologist. His particular interests are contact lenses, diseases of the eye and ensuring the best fit for your eyewear needs.

The practice

The practice contains consultation and dedicated ancillary equipment rooms extensively equipped with state of the art instruments including:

  • Zeiss Humphrey field analyser 3 computerised perimeter for investigating visual fields.
  • Topcon computerised auto-refractor for measuring spectacle refraction.
  • Slitlamps for examining the anterior segment of the eye.
  • Computerised Medmont C-100 for testing colour vision deficiencies.
  • Digital Goldmann, Perkins, i-Care and non-contact puff tonometers for measuring intra-ocular pressure.
  • Fundus camera for digital retinal imaging.
  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) which enables high resolution cross-sectional retinal imaging for the comprehensive management and diagnosis of glaucoma, retinal disease, and in particular macular degeneration. OCT enables our optometrists to more readily distinguish between the dry and the wet form of macular degeneration.
  • Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF) which provides information about the health and function of the retina. 

Our on-site workshop also means you don't have to wait weeks before you can get your spectacles, and our purchasing staff always ensure we always have the best ranges of spectacles at lowest prices.
