We cater for all ages, from young children to seniors. We have two clinics, located in Ormond and Oakleigh, conveniently located close to public transport, and parking facilities.

Our Optometry Practice has been in existence for over 60 years. The Oakleigh practice was originally started soon after the Second World War by Mr Norman Jarvey. It was then taken over by Mr Alan Templeton in the 1960’s and Stephen Wakeling acquired the practice in 1984. The Ormond location was originally started by Mr William Cooper in 1981, and it was acquired by Stephen Wakeling only a year later in 1982.

So, since Stephen took over the practice, we have now been in both of these locations for over 30 years. More recently Eve Makrai came to the practice, with over 30 years of experience herself. Our combined experience brings you over 60 years, so you can be assured of our ongoing knowledge and experience to provide you with the best possible service. Additionally, you can rest assured that you can continue to see the same practitioner when you return for your next visit.

We will always go the extra mile for you, our valued patients and customers. What sets us apart is that we offer extra services than you will be offered in many other optical outlets. These extra services include:

Specialised diagnosis and treatments for Dry Eye Syndrome and Blepharitis, and specialised fitting of Contact Lenses, including the speciality of the discipline of Ortho-Keratology (prescribing special contact lenses to correct your vision while you are sleeping).

We also pride ourselves in giving great service and advice for the provision of more regular vision-care appliances such as spectacles, sunglasses, and conventional contact lenses. We take advantage of the latest technology to check the health of your eyes in the most thorough ways possible.

We have an extensive range of Spectacle Frames and Sunglasses, with over 1,000 models on display at our two locations, additionally we have access to over 20,000 models from our frame and sunglass suppliers. Additionally we have access to thousands of different spectacle lens products to provide you with the best options to suit your eyes, and hundreds of designs of contact lenses to add to the services we provide.

Our wonderful staff are committed to caring for you and adding to the services you are provided from our Optometrists.

We take the care of your eyes very seriously, and trust that you will receive the best care available.

Thank You,

The Management and Staff at Prime Vision-Care Centres.
