Eye Gallery Staff

Eye Gallery is committed to helping clients achieve their own individual style with Designer Eyewear.

Eye Gallery offers eye testing with fully qualified and therapeutically trained, local, Geelong optometrists. We keep patients fully informed through every step of the optometry process which includes comprehensive eye examinations and informative discussions on eye health. A comprehensive eye exam involves general eye health, retinal photography and glaucoma checks, occupational/hobby visual advice and paediatric assessments. The eye examinations are bulk billed to Medicare.

Then it is time to peruse the stylish yet modern and genuinely unique range of glasses that Eye Gallery has to offer.

You can visit the same friendly staff across both our locations at Eye Gallery, Highton and Frank Denahy Eye Gallery, Geelong.
