LAST CHANCE – 2018 Health Insurance Claims

November 14th, 2018

As always at this time of year, there are the reminders from health providers that if you haven’t made a claim on your insurance for 2018, now is the time to do it. So if you are going camping and need some prescription sunnies, or lucky enough to be going skiing and want some contacts, let’s do it before that yearly rebate disappears forever.

Winner, Winner, chicken dinner!!! Or was it pizza?? In any case, the winner of the 2018 installment was T.B who traveled all the way from Boonah for his Eye Test and Dinner. Here he is sporting his new Carter Bond frames with his first pair of multi-focal lenses. Such a good looking rooster, Simon made him parade around the Bent Elbow in the glasses in an attempt to take some promo photos.

Product/Style Night – Thanks to All

November 13th, 2018

We would like to say a big thanks to everyone that joined us at the Bent Elbow recently for our Style night where we showcased the latest release of frames from the stables of Sunshades and LBJ Optical. So successful and enjoyable was the night that it will become a more regular event on the calendar. Can I say a special thanks to Xtend Barre , The Stones Corner Flower Shop and the Bent Elbow for all providing door prizes on the night. Also thanks to the guys at Shamir who helped out with half price lenses for the lucky winners as well.

Product night

Therapeutic Qualification

August 22nd, 2018

There are interesting and fulfilling times ahead here at the practice following Simon’s recent completion of his Certificate in Ocular Therapeutics studies. What this will mean is that once the regulatory bodies have endorsed the qualification, Simon will be able to prescribe a variety of topical medications (eye-drops) ranging from anti-biotic drops to steroid and anti-glaucoma medications.

How this will change the practice in the immediate term will be very subtle, however over the next 12 months the practice will invest in new consulting-room equipment that will complement the new qualification and provide patients with more comprehensive and detailed assessment.

In the coming months we will continue to update you as these improved services are introduced into the practice.

It’s back – Eye Test and Dinner Deal

August 22nd, 2018

Here at Stones Corner Eyewear, to the best of our knowledge, we offer the only “Eye Test and Dinner Deal” in the country, possibly the world. Simon is again happy to put this promotion together for 2018 and this year with a slight twist. This year’s offer applies to people that travel a decent distance to see Simon.

If you live further that 20km from the practice (as measured by Google Maps….) and plan to visit for an eye test before the end of November, please enter the competition as you will also receive a dinner at The Bent Elbow in Stones Corner, straight after your eye test.

The first 5 people that express interest and are eligible will go into the draw for the “ETADD”. The fine print is that Simon will be joining you for dinner, so if you are thinking his company may not be your cup of tea, then maybe don’t enter. Past winners are still attending the practice so it is obviously not too daunting a proposal.

You can please respond via email simon@sc-optom.com or phone 33970000 or sms to 0434352294. Winner will be notified as soon as the draw takes place, ideally within 1-2 weeks

Contact Lenses Sent Directly !

August 22nd, 2018

For the majority of our contact lens wearers we now have a new option to have your contact lenses directly sent to you via courier once ordered.

This is a service at no charge to you, and this means you should receive your order the very next day to the address you provide.

Presby-what???

August 18th, 2018

Speaking from first hand experience, the most common form of visual decline happens in our 40′s and is referred to as presbyopia. It is when the lens in our eye loses its flexibility and we can’t focus on near objects anymore. One of my numerous speech pathologist patients was in to see me recently and when explaining that she had presbyopia, she told me that there is a condition called presbyphonia that I will also get at some point – great!!! It is when your voice changes and I will have an ‘old-man’ voice. So as it turns out, the prefix ‘presby’ is Greek and refers to old/elderly.

If this comes up at your next school trivia night, think of me, maybe? Not?
