Welcome to Eyecare Plus Optometrist Edgecliff
Sydney optometrist Eyecare Plus Edgecliff focus on comprehensive eye examinations, prescription sunglasses, spectacle frames, contact lenses and eye health care for the whole family.
Our practice was established 15 years ago and as such we have a longstanding history of high quality eye care.
Our experienced optometrist believes that a good eye exam is about spending time with our patients so as to give a thorough eye examination.
We accept all health funds, including:
- Medibank Private
- Defence Health
- Teachers Health, etc.
We stock a wide range of frames in our practice from high end fashion (including Face a Face, Oroton, Vera Wang and Furla brands) to the practical and price competitive options. We will also advise you on the best lens technologies to suit your vision and lifestyle requirements.

Macular Degeneration (MD) is a disease that destroys the central vision that we use for everyday tasks such as reading and driving. It is the leading cause of blindness and severe vision loss in Australia. For patients older than 50 years, one in seven will have some sign of it. While there is presently no cure for MD if it is detected early enough we can slow its progression.
Glaucoma is an eye disease which slowly destroys the optic nerve at the back of the eye. In some cases in may move rapidly. It is usually caused by increased pressure inside the eye though it may be caused by poor blood supply or a weakness of the optic nerve. Over 300,000 Australians have glaucoma. It is more common as we age but it can occur at any age.
A cataract is a clouding or haze of the lens inside the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. Opacities in the lens obstruct light from passing through and being focused on to the retina.
Astigmatism is an out-of-roundness of one or more surfaces in the eye's optical system.
Spots and floaters are semi-transparent specks of natural materials inside the eye, which sometimes can be seen floating in the field of vision.
Amblyopia, or Lazy Eye, is a reduced vision, generally in only one eye. The condition usually results from poor eye co-ordination, from having a turned eye, or after having one eye which requires a far greater lens power.
Diabetic Eye Disease
Approximately 4% of people have diabetes, often undiagnosed. Diabetes can damage many parts of the body, including the eyes, causing vision problems, glaucoma, cataract and diabetic retinopathy.
Hyperopia, or Long-sightedness, causes a person to see clearer at far than at near distances.
In recent years, it has been shown that just like sunburn and skin cancers, exposure to ultra-violet (UV) radiation also causes eye damage.
Excessive UV exposure has become an increasing problem since the depletion of the ozone layer.
One of the most common effects of UV damage to the eye is pterygium. This is a triangular growth of thickened degenerative tissue on the white of the eye (the sclera) that may also extend onto the cornea (the window at the front of the eye).
