Our practices provide quality eye care for the whole family. We differentiate ourselves by offering excellent service  a positive eye care experience is our top priority.

Eye care for children is a special passion of ours, and we love helping children reach their full academic potential by enhancing their visual abilities. Both of our practices offer a full range of pediatric eye care services, including visual therapy and dyslexia testing. This field of optometry is sometimes referred to as behavioural optometry, or developmental optometry. We also carry a wide selection of children's frames to suit each age group. Click here for more info on pediatric eye care.

We know how important it is to look good, and feel comfortable with a pair of spectacles. For this reason, we carry a wide range of quality frames to suit all styles and applications. To ensure maximum comfort, our optical dispenser will fit your spectacles professionally, while also making sure to recommend the thinnest and lightest lenses to compliment your frames. We also offer a free service plan for your spectacles, ensuring that you enjoy optimum comfort throughout the lifespan of your glasses.

When it comes to spectacle lenses, we refuse to compromise on quality. We partnered with Essilor, the world leader in prescription eyewear, allowing us to deliver the right lens, on time, every time. Essilor was ranked #49 on the Forbes list of the world's most innovative companies in 2014, and one of their latest innovations is called Optifog, an anti-fog coating which prevents lenses from fogging up. This is especially useful when performing activities or tasks where fogging up of lenses is not an option, and people who benefit from this technology includes for instance athletes, chefs, dentists and surgeons.

At vdm optometrists, whatever your age and whatever your visual requirements, we have the right lens solution for you.
