Eye Exams

We now provide full optometrist services including eye exams in three locations around Wellington (Masterton, Porirua and Wellington CBD).

Adults can now support our charity by getting an eye test - this continues to provide free eye tests & prescription glasses to children in your local area. Book an eye exam by contacting one of the numbers below.

Under Level 2 restrictions, we are partially open - our Hataitai shop and Wellington CBD clinic are open for appointments; Masterton is partially open to their patients; Porirua is still closed.

Common Questions

Do I need an eye exam to get glasses?

No, but eye exams are important to ensure that you have the best correction for your glasses (eyes do change over time), and to ensure that any eye diseases are picked up early and treated correctly.

We recommend a regular eye exam every 2 years just to make sure everything is up-to-date. Also, we can't legally use prescriptions older than 2 years.

What does an eye exam cost?

Adult eye exams are $60 (recommended donation).

This is a donation and 100% of this goes back to the charity to continue our work with kids in the community. We know that some might not be able to afford this amount and would like to be able to offer this to

Kid's eye exams are free.

This is subsidised by grants, subsidies, and through eye exams for adults.

How does this help the charity?

Did you know that up to 20% of kiwi kids have undiagnosed vision problems? Reading, writing, whiteboard work, computers, playtime and sports are all hard work if you cannot see clearly.

We are trying our best to solve this in the areas we are located - our clinics are located in areas of the highest need, and you get to see and be part of the change we are making.

What if I need glasses?

We don't always suggest you need new glasses, especially if you love your glasses so have options that suit everyone;

1. If you like to keep your own frames, we think that is great - it saves you money, save the environment by reducing waste, but also saves you time looking for another frame.

2. We have a range of new frames as well as donated frames that were kindly refurbished by Lions Karori, and given to us to give to others for free.

Do you do contact lenses?

Not yet, but our eye tests do include review of your existing contact lenses if you have them already and provide an updated prescription. We will look at adding contact lenses in the future though.
