Eyecare Information

We all love our ability to see. But as we age, our vision changes and we can be susceptible to a range of eye health related concerns.. It is therefore vital that our eyes receive constant care and attention throughout our lives.

We at Prevue Eyewear will be your first line of defence against possible eye problems. Our training and knowledge has given us the expertise to recognize and recommend appropriate treatment for a variety of visual conditions.

Below is a table of some of the most common optical conditions that people encounter. If you are experiencing any of these, or are uncertain as to what is wrong with your vision, please contact your nearest Prevue Eyewear branch immediately where we can conduct a bulk billed eye examination.
