Advanced Technology for Comprehensive Eye Examinations

Martin’s Eyecare is a Hobart optometrist that has invested in industry leading technology because your eye health is important to us. With the aid of the latest in diagnostic technologies, we can accurately provide eye tests for common eye disorders, such as glaucoma, cataracts, diabetes, and macular degeneration.

Glaucoma – We conduct tests for glaucoma by measuring eye pressure and examining the optic nerve’s health. Glaucoma is a treatable condition, especially when detected early.

Cataracts – At our Glenorchy optometry practice, we also test for cataracts by examining the clarity and transparency of the eye’s lens during a comprehensive eye examination. If your condition requires eye surgery, we can refer you to a trusted ophthalmologist.

Diabetes – We can check for diabetes by carefully examining the blood vessels in the retina (the back part of the eye) during an eye examination. Changes in these blood vessels can indicate the presence of diabetes and its potential impact on eye health.

Macula Degeneration – Our optometrists test for macular degeneration by using advanced tools to examine the central part of the retina, called the macula. This allows us to assess any changes or damage that may be occurring, helping to diagnose and monitor the condition.

By allowing for early intervention and individualised care, these tests help prevent or treat eye problems before they have an adverse effect on general eye health and quality of life.


Individual Dry Eye Investigation with Oculus Keratograph

Martin’s Eyecare is one of only two optometrists in Tasmania equipped with the innovative Oculus Keratograph tear analysis equipment from Germany for dry eye analysis.

Individuals who have dry eye syndrome experience a grainy or sandy feeling in their eyes. As a response to the dryness, the eyes may occasionally become red, itchy, or even watery. Vision may become a little hazy, and strong lights may cause greater discomfort than usual.

The Oculus Keratograph tear analysis equipment helps us understand why you are experiencing these symptoms. We use the technology to suggest the best ways to make your eyes feel better, whether it’s using eye drops, changing habits, or trying different treatments.

Our expertise and capabilities in dry eye treatment have even attracted patients from beyond Hobart. We’ve had people come to us from all over Tasmania to seek relief from dry eye symptoms and remedies that they just haven’t been able to find through other optometrists in our state.


A Hobart Optometrist With a Unique Range of Eyewear

Your glasses are more than just an aid to better vision, what you choose to put on your face expresses your unique identity to the world. At Martin’s Eyecare we make sure that the prescription glasses or sunglasses you choose will complement your individuality.

When you check out our frame board, you’ll discover an exquisite collection of nearly 800 optical frames and sunglasses. Our selection is carefully curated to cater to a wide range of tastes, preferences, and lifestyles. We showcase exclusive designs that you won’t find in another Hobart optometrist.

We prioritise brands that demonstrate high quality and expert craftsmanship, sourcing our frames from only reputable suppliers in Australia and Europe. This ensures that you receive eyewear that not only looks great but also meets the highest standards of durability and design.

From youthful, fresh designers like Vanni, to the classic style of Domani, to the retro chic look of Val & Co., we offer eyewear in a variety of designs and materials. Whether you have a preference for titanium, metal, or acetate, we’ve got something to delight you.

With so many choices, we understand that selecting the perfect frames for your face, your personality, and your unique preferences can be daunting.

But at Martin’s Eyecare, our experienced optical dispensers understand that finding the perfect pair of glasses involves more than just correcting your vision; it’s about expressing your personal style.

We’ll take the time to help you choose the absolute right eyewear, so that you’ll leave our Glenorchy practice feeling confident and satisfied with your eye care investment.

And if you ever have problems with the frames you purchase, don’t worry. We’ll be happy to adjust them for you!
