Central Leader - - News -

Even in harsh eco­nomic times peo­ple still need to en­sure that their eye­sight is checked reg­u­larly.

Vi­sion is the most im­por­tant of the senses, so it is im­per­a­tive that ad­e­quate mea­sures are taken to pro­tect the sight.

Auck­land Op­tometrists are cur­rently pro­vid­ing good value deals so that fam­i­lies do not ne­glect the need to main­tain good eye health.

Check-ups are nec­es­sary be­cause cer­tain con­di­tions which can lead to blind­ness can de­velop without symp­toms, but can be treated if de­tected early in an ex­am­i­na­tion.

The clinic spe­cialises in pro­vid­ing th­ese ser­vices for the whole fam­ily. Op­tometrist Shan Khayami’s pas­sion is med­i­cal op­tom­e­try with great at­ten­tion given to de­tec­tion and treat­ment of eye dis­eases.

Con­di­tions which need to be checked for in­clude glau­coma, cataracts and mac­u­lar de­gen­er­a­tion, which can de­velop unchecked if not de­tected by an ex­am­i­na­tion. It is rec­om­mended that peo­ple should have their vi- sion tested ap­prox­i­mately ev­ery two years.

As a small lo­cally owned op­er­a­tion without large over­heads, the clinic can of­fer the most com­pet­i­tive prices and state-of-the-art equip­ment and prod­ucts.

Eye ex­am­i­na­tions cost just $49 for every­one, with a spe­cial deal of $39 for first time cus­tomers who do not re­quire a pre­scrip­tion – the av­er­age price for an ex­am­i­na­tion in the Auck­land area is $60.

There is also a spe­cial ‘buy one pair get one free’ deal for frames, which is not lim­ited to the same per­son but to other fam­ily mem­bers re­quir­ing spec­ta­cles.

Re­turn­ing cus­tomers can also claim a free anti-re­flec­tive coat­ing ser­vice on their glasses worth $100.

Chil­dren whose par­ents pos­sess a Com­mu­nity Ser­vices Card are en­ti­tled to a free ex­am­i­na­tion and pair of glasses if re­quired.

A full range of frames to suit all ages and tastes, from bud­get to de­signer – Gucci, Hugo Boss etc – is stocked, with hun­dreds of styles on dis­play.

The clinic is lo­cated at 109a Trafal­gar St, Royal Oak, Phone 636 3639. Ap­point­ments avail­able.

At­ten­tion to de­tail: Op­tometrist Shan Khayami suc­cess­fully com­bines a phi­los­o­phy of car­ing, af­ford­able op­tom­e­try with state of the art equip­ment and prod­ucts.
