Welcome John Mountford Optometrist

We are very excited to announce that from July 1st 2018, we will be looking after the former patients of John Mountford's Queen Street practice. John is closing the doors on the T and G building practice after 42 years and stepping back from full time practice.

A message from John:

"For the past 40 years we have been honoured to serve the eyecare needs of so many patients at the John Mountford Optometrist Practice in Queen Street, Brisbane.

This notice is to let you know that on June 30th we will be closing the doors in Queen Street.

I will be retiring from full time practice at this time. We are relocating the day to day Optometry practice to Clarity Optometrists at Bulimba and I will be joining Clarity Optometrists on a part time basis going forward. They will hold your health records for your ongoing care.

As it is my intention to step away from full time practice, I would like to ensure that you continue to receive the best of care and to introduce you to the great team at Clarity Optometrists led by Dr Ann Webber.

It has been a pleasure being part of the lives of so many patients over the years and I feel confident in introducing you to Ann, who I have known for more than 30 years, and her team. You should feel comfortable in contacting Ann and her team for any of your ongoing needs.

Clarity is a full scope Optometry practice that has been serving the people of Brisbane since 1991 and their Optometrists are very experienced in contact lens prescribing, fitting and care including the fitting of complex children’s contact lenses for the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital."

What is an OCT??

To better manage diseases like Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration, we use the latest scanning of the retina with our Zeiss Cirrus Optical Coherence Tomographer which enables cross sectional imaging of the retina and optic nerve. This instrument uses a non invasive laser light instead of x rays to obtain an image. The procedure takes only a few minutes and is completely painless. During the procedure the patient is seated behind the instrument and asked to maintain fixation at a small light inside the instrument. While the patient is looking at the target the laser scans the retinal tissue in a matter of seconds. The digital color image obtained allows us to visualize abnormalities or structures within the retina down to less than 10 microns. This procedure is very helpful measuring nerve damage in glaucoma.

Retinal changes in diabetesmacular degeneration, central serous retinopathy, cystoid macular edema, epiretinal membranes, hypertensive retinopathy, and other conditions are also able to be managed more accurately than ever before.
