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."

ODMA visit Sydney 2017!

 

The Clarity team hit Sydney recently to look at whats hot in frames and equipment recently at the ODMA fair.

Hosted by the Optical Distributors & Manufacturers Association of Australia (ODMA), the ODMA Fair is a trade event held every two years. Since 1979 the ODMA Fair has been a vital resource for the industry.

ODMA2017 took place 7 – 9 July in Sydney at the new and stunning International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour. Not held in Sydney for the past 6 years, there is much anticipation for ODMA2017 to return to the harbour city.

ODMA2017 had an array of new interactive features, major networking events and strong educational content including revamped Masterclasses and Spotlight Seminars.

Recently, ODMA members have been surveyed and have provided constructive feedback to help reshape and improve outcomes of participation in the industry fair. Being back in Sydney, in a stunning new venue with many new initiatives, ODMA2017 promises to deliver the very latest in fashion, innovation and technology and be the best to date.

Watch out for new frames that will be arriving in practice very soon!

We will be doing features on new ranges as they arrive.

Queensland Vision Research Summit 2017

 

About 40 research optometrists, private practice optometrists, ophthalmologists, ophthalmology registrars, orthoptists, biomedical scientists and students attended the first Queensland Collaborative Vision Research Symposium at QUT.

They discussed potential topics for collaborative research including myopia, amblyopia and microbiota and the eye, and potential research questions that could be answered by cross-professional clinical trials.

Dr Ann Webber was the main organiser of the event on 27 June, in partnership with Queensland University of Technology School of Optometry and Vision Science, and Queensland Eye Institute (QEI).

Dr Webber said the goal of the first program was to foster networking among QUT vision scientists, biomedical scientists, optometrists, and ophthalmologists interested in clinical research.
