EyeQ Optometrists

Tony Ireland EyeQ Optometrists have been providing quality eyecare in Ulladulla for over fifteen years, and for thirty years in the broader Shoalhaven area. Along with Optometrists Tony and Alinta, Elizabeth Chen has recently joined the practice. Kylie, Ross and Belinda complete the fantastic team with newcomers Mike and Bonnie who have both made the move to the beautiful South Coast from Canberra and Young respectively. Bonnie has an Associate Degree in Fashion Design and can assist in selecting the perfect frames for you.

Tony has special interest in children’s vision, and managing diseases of the eye like cataract, glaucoma and macular degeneration. Tony is also interested in contact lenses, and we keep a large supply of contact lenses in stock. We are a bulk billing practice and are also equipped for Digital Retinal Imaging, Visual Field Testing and Ocular Coherence Tomography which is critical technology for tracking glaucoma. We also fit Orthokeratology contact lenses, which give clear daytime vision without the need for glasses or contact lenses.
