At optometry@cooroy our goal is to provide the best eyewear for our patients’ visual needs & lifestyle.
Our Products Menu
We choose every model frame on our shelves ourselves from both designer & independent lines. It is important to us that we provide a wide choice of style, fashion & durability in our frames with an awareness of the varied budgets of our clientele. As an independent practice we can update our frame selection regularly as well as being free to source specific styles to satisfy our clients. Most of our frames are backed by a 24 month manufacturing warranty.
Due to our optometrists’ interest in behavioural optometry & children’s vision care we also have an extensive range of children’s frame for all sizes & budgets.
At optometry@cooroy we take pride in helping you find the perfect frame for your taste and style.
There are many new, & we feel exciting, developments in spectacle lens technology. Lenses can be made thinner & lighter than ever before. Clarity & field of vision can be enhanced. We are prescribing the latest lenses designed specifically to relax & protect your eyes from the use of digital screens.
Premium free form multifocal lenses can be highly individualised to meet the unique needs & lifestyle of our patients, offering easier adaptability & are more comfortable to wear because technology takes into account not only the frame dimensions, how the particular frame you choose sits on your face as well as your eye movements & posture.
There have been further improvements in light-sensitive or photochromatic lenses (Transitions) so that they darken & lighten more quickly & more effectively & in a wider range of colours.
Scratch-resistant coatings are standard on all our lenses & we also highly recommend anti-reflective coatings to reduce glare & reflections allowing optimal lens performance & improved appearance. The newest anti-reflective coatings are far easier to clean & are extremely hard-wearing. We are also offering the newest “blue-light blocking” coatings which reflect blue wavelengths of light from electronic devices.
As independent optometrists we are free to source our spectacle lenses from the best manufacturers available in Australia including our primary lens supplier, the proudly Australian owned & operated CR-Surfacing. We also utilise lenses from Essilor, Hoya, Rodenstock & Zeiss laboratories. We can source unusual speciality lenses from smaller laboratories if required.
All of our support team are qualified optical dispensers & look forward to discussing with you the best lenses for your specific needs.
We have a wide range of prescription sunglass options including premium polarised lenses & sunglass frames from Maui Jim, Zeal (with lenses produced by Maui Jim) & Drivewear. Australian brand Bill Bass is one of our most popular ranges of sunglasses providing modern styling in an economical package.
Of course you are not limited to “sunglass” frames as we can also dispense prescription sunglass lenses in single vision, multifocal or bifocal forms in polarized, tinted & transitions forms into most of our fashion frames.
A new and exciting technical innovation in spectacle lens design which takes into consideration how the eyes work together. The Shaw Lens technology has been designed to solve the age old optical problem of aniseikonia.
Aniseikonia exists when the size of the image through the spectacle lens is different for each eye. It commonly occurs when the eyes have significantly different prescriptions & can result in eye strain, headaches & even double vision. As well as being used for adults we have found the Shaw lenses particularly beneficial for our younger patients with refractive amblyopia. In addition to vision therapy Shaw lenses are allowing us to provide NO PATCH treatment.
Shaw lenses are available in a wide range of lens styles including single vision, bifocal, progressive & occupational lenses. All Shaw lenses are in a high index material which can include transitions, polarisation or tinting.

Prescription Safety Lenses
Around 116,000 Australians present to emergency departments and GPs every year with eye injuries! For those presenting to emergency departments, the most common place for injury to occur was at home (37%) followed by the workplace (29%).
optometry@cooroy is proud to supply the award winning Australian designed & manufactured IC Safety System. This is a patented system providing economical prescription-ready safety eyewear & enables the user to simply release the prescription lenses from their frames & re-insert them into new protective frames should the need arise. No need to replace the complete system when either the prescription changes or the safety shield needs updating.
Safety eyewear should be considered a must for the home handyman. Ask to see our prescription ready safety eyewear range.
