At Davida Van Der Merwe Optometrist situated in Newcastle we offer a full range of eye care services with strong emphasis on clinical care enabling early intervention and appropriate referral when needed.
We invite new and previous patients to our optometry practice to experience our full range of vision care. We always strive for excellence in providing the best eye care possible!
A yearly visit to the optometrist is recommended, even if you already have spectacles or contact lenses. We provide professional service in a calm, relaxed atmosphere. We like to spend time with each patient to help them see and look their best.
It is crucial for children to have regular eye examinations. 80% of what we learn is through the eyes, and it is hard for anyone to explain to a child how they should be seeing, any eye or vision problem can really only be detected with an eye examination.
As an extended service, Davida van der Merwe Optometrist hosts a clinic to provide various services to less privileged members of the community and also provide a free eye test for driver license candidates. All of this in an effort to help more people improve their lives.
We believe that prevention is better than cure, and that early detection is key to successful treatment of any eye diseases.
