Welcome to Eyecare Plus Optometrist Sydney CBD
Sydney optometrist Eyecare Plus Sydney CBD focus on comprehensive eye examinations, prescription sunglasses, spectacle frames, contact lenses and eye health care for the whole family.
Eyecare Plus CBD has been serving the Sydney city community since 1932. We have been providing comprehensive general eyecare services since that time. Our aim is to provide you with the best eyecare that we can by investing in the latest technology to check ocular health, and updating our skills and knowledge through participation in national and international conferences. We also participate in educating future Optometrists at the School of Vision Science and Optometry UNSW.
Historically we have been a practice associated with contact lens fitting. We are one of the first practices in Sydney to fit hard contact lenses and still remain one of the major contact lens practices, fitting specialised contact lenses, in the Sydney basin. We have many years experience in fitting rigid contact lenses for early and advanced keratoconus , post corneal grafts and miniscleral lenses. We also have an extensive myopia control practice centred around fitting orthokeratology lenses.
Our practice is located in the historic Dymocks building in the shopping heart of Sydney.
We are conveniently positioned close to Town Hall station, Myer, David Jones and the Queen Victoria Building.
Our optometry practice was established in 1932 and taken over by Charles McMonnies in 1968. Gavin Boneham joined the practice in 1997.
Our goal has always been to provide personal service in a friendly professional manner. We aim to give our patients the best possible optometrical services through our dedication to professional education and providing state of the art equipment combined with the latest clinical techniques.

Current Preventative Management Strategies For Myopia (Short Sightedness)
What is Myopia?
Myopia is a condition that results in blurring of distance vision and is typically corrected with conventional spectacles, contact lenses, or refractive surgery (LASIK). While clear vision can be restored using these approaches, none of these strategies offer a means of slowing the progression of myopia. The prevalence of myopia is increasing and there is evidence to suggest that both genetic and environmental factors contribute to myopia progression.
What is Keratoconus?
Keratoconus is a condition in which the cornea, the clear tissue in front of the coloured part of the eye, becomes thin and distorted in shape. Keratoconus does not lead to blindness but the corneal distortion will cause a decrease in your vision. Initially this condition can be treated with spectacles but, as it progresses, rigid hard contact lenses are needed to correct vision effectively. Sometimes, in the early stages, soft lenses can be used successfully.
Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye syndrome is a lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture in the eye leaving the cornea (the main lens of the eye) with an inadequate tear film. This occurs when the eye doesnt produce enough tears, or the tears have a chemical composition that causes them to evaporate too quickly.
