Consulting Room Upgrade

Thursday, May 16th, 2019

Simon is undoubtedly excited about the upcoming upgrade to his consulting room equipment. This upgrade comes on the back of his recent graduation from his Ocular Therapeutics studies. He will finally have access to his own Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT), a non-invasive imaging device that uses light waves to take cross sectional pictures of the retina. Conditions where this is to be used as standard include glaucoma, diabetic eye disease and macular degeneration.

Parking Available – Reminder

Thursday, May 16th, 2019

Parking has always been seen as a little tricky at times in Stones Corner. Most of you are aware of those areas that you can generally find a car-park, however we also want to remind you that we have dedicated car-parking behind the practice. If you can find Alice Place and follow that little street to directly behind the practice – there is a grassy car-park that is ours and will always have a space for patients of ours.

Another reminder for all our contact lens patients. The majority of orders can now be express posted directly to your work/home and generally arrive the following day, this is a complimentary service with no extra charges.

Welcome Anna

I would like to publicly welcome our newest staff member Anna to the practice. Anna has commenced University and is studying Optometry at QUT. Shaunesy is working closely with Anna in order to help her get up to speed, and we appreciate your patience should Anna answer your phone calls in the weeks ahead.

Farewell to The Bent Elbow

Thursday, May 16th, 2019

All good things do come to an end. At the Stones Corner Festival recently, the guys at the Bent Elbow shut their doors for good and what a finale!!!!!! How much fun has it been having them next door for the last few years? I will miss Jeremy and Nick and all the regulars. And where to for the Eye Test and Dinner deal from now on??

Someone has likened The Elbow to the sit-com “Cheers”, where “everybody knows your name”. I am unsure if that would make me Norm Peterson, Cliff Clavin or possibly Dr Frasier Crane??

New website under construction

Thursday, May 16th, 2019

Our website is being reconstructed slowly but surely. I have been plugging away with my limited knowledge of web-site workings and hope to have things finalised in the coming months. It will provide a fresh look that is well overdue.

BEWARE!!! Hamstring resistance can be dangerous.

One of Simon’s patient’s was recently injured when a “resistance band” gave way whilst stretching his hamstring. OUCH!!!!!
