EyeQ Optometrists Jannali

EyeQ Optometrists Jannali (formerly Southern Optical), opened in 2000 and quickly built a reputation for providing quality eyecare. Today, we are one of the largest independent optometry practices in the Sutherland Shire, proudly servicing all areas including Miranda, Sylvania, Kirrawee, Woronora, Gymea, Kareela, Como, Oyster Bay and Jannali.

Our optometrists are members of OA, ACBO, CCLSA and two are therapeutically endorsed. Our behavioural optometrists are experienced in the treatment of children with strabismus, amblyopia and learning difficulties. Our qualified optical dispensers are ready to advise on both children’s and adult glasses, sunglasses and contact lenses. Eye examinations are done in a caring, professional and friendly manner so all patients are made to feel comfortable.

Our practice team are committed to providing the best possible solutions for all your vision requirements. We have an extensive range of frames to cover all styles from designer to budget. Instant on the spot claiming for health fund members is available and a range of “low gap” or “no gap” spectacles too.
