Highbury Optometrists

Optometry Service



Optometrists Tony and Paula created Highbury Optometrists in 2004, continuing the care of former optometrist Ceri Anthony's long established practice. In 2008 they moved to the new larger premises at 52 Mokoia Road.

Highbury Optometrists specialises in a high standard of vision care and technology plays a big role. Digital retinal images are now taken routinely as part of every eye examination. All new contact lens fits include corneal topography to digitally measure the eye shape.
