Noosa’s Only Independent

We’re Noosa’s only genuinely 100% locally owned and operated, independent Optometrist. We’re not part of a large retail company, consortium or franchise chain. Unlike all of our local competitors, our team is free from corporate contraints and is not limited by a retail franchise model. We’re focused on providing a better experience, in a more friendly environment.

Longest Established

Noosa Optical has been established in our purpose built rooms since 1989. We’ve seen many other Optometrists in Noosa come and go, including a large, multinational corporate Optometrist in Noosa Junction. We’re proud to be the oldest practice in Noosa and continue to invest in our future services for our local community. We’re here for the long term and we’re withstanding the test of time.

Genuine Quality

Everyone claims quality. Our difference is, we personally hand pick and tailor what we do. Before we recommend a product, we test it on ourselves. Our Optometrists are free to adapt their skills to each client’s needs. Our product range is hand curated by our dispensing team. The quality of what we provide is a reflection on us. There’s no sales team in a head office sending us something labeled as quality.

Eye Technology

Noosa Optical has invested in world-class eye health technology. Basic technology just isn’t good enough. The best eye health care can only be provided with highly accurate, precision equipment. Furthermore, our eye health equipment isn’t for a retail show. It’s clinically focused and clinically used. Our imaging is accepted by specialists and surgeons and won’t need to be repeated.

Longer Appointments

Our appointments are longer and you’ll get more time with our Optometrists. They aren’t rushed and have the time to go beyond just a basic screening for glasses.  Our team is free to spend time understanding your concerns. There will also be time to discuss your results along the way. After that, we’ll provide a personalised recommendation rather than a one-size-fits-all, quick-fix.

Continuity of Care

You’ll see the same Optometrist today and in years to come. Catherine has owned and worked in the practice as an Optometrist since 2007. We’ll understand your history and can monitor even minor changes in your eye health and vision. Moreover, Noosa is our home and we’re here for the long term, rather than a short stint.

Part Of The Community

Noosa Optical is a local business and we live, shop and work locally. We’ve worked with local kindergarten and primary schools, providing a free community service to local children between the ages of 3-6 years at participating schools. We also support Lions Recycle for Sight by collecting unwanted glasses from the local community.

Informed & Trained

Our team is trained and up to date on the details. Furthermore, our dispensing team is technically skilled, they’re not salespeople with targets to reach. Our dispensers will give you the facts, so you can make an informed decision about your eyes and vision. We won’t compromise your eye health or vision by promoting inferior solutions.

Long Term

Our mission is to provide the best possible vision, for the longest possible time. We start with preventative eye health care for earlier diagnosis. In addition, we’ll support your vision with quality eyewear which lasts longer and ultimately, costs you less. Lastly, we’re here for the long term ourselves. We’re not a temporary practice or visiting Optometrist.

Tailor Made Frames

We are the only stockist of custom-designed and made LINDBERG frames on the Sunshine Coast. They are unlike any other spectacle frame. You choose the shape, materials, and colours. Your frame is then made to order, in your size. Exceptionally designed and crafted from premium materials, we assemble and fit the frames ourselves, providing a fully tailored service.
