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."

Happy World Sight Day 2017!

 

Our Children’s Vision is a call to action – to come together to ensure that effective, inclusive, sustainable eye health initiatives are available to children around the world, regardless of their economic status or geographical location.

Optometry Giving Sight is proud to be a global partner in Our Children’s Vision. We believe that Our Children’s Vision will ensure every child, everywhere has access to the eye care they need. The best part is you can help.

What does a child see for their future? Moonwalks, sold out stadiums, the presidency? The most striking part of any child’s dream is their ambition. But the key to all those ambitions is a good education, and getting a good education is difficult without good eyesight.

Every seven year old, when going to school, should take along a certificate from their optometrist saying, ‘I’ve had my eyes examined, I’m ok I can see.

Children should not be limited by a preventable or treatable vision impairment.

Our initial target is to provide services to 50 million children by 2020. It is an achievable goal and, by supporting the development of local people and utilising their expertise, we will reach it. We can achieve sustainability and efficiency by operating inside established systems with people who know and understand current processes.

Research is vital to driving awareness and achieving change. We are committed to understanding and communicating the level of need for eye care services and the impact that the increasing prevalence of myopia is having on our children. The knowledge gained will demonstrate the missing link in complete health provision for children.
