Optikus has been providing comprehensive eye examinations and great service to locals on the Sunshine Coast for over 10 years.
Our vision is that every person leaves our practice with the knowledge their eye health is important and understands we value each and everyone that walks through the door.
We are a family friendly, independent practice catering for all age ranges. We are proud of our Childrens Vision Centre and just recently acquired the Vivid Vision System, a virtual vision training tool.
We provide solutions for all your vision needs to and help you select fashionable and functional frames that will suit your style and needs.
Providing tailored eye care solutions to people who want the very best for their eyes, we are a Provision member and invite you to come in and experience the difference.
Kathryn has been in the optometry industry, working in private practice for the last 9 years. She began as an optical assistant before qualifying as a therapeutically endorsed optometrist, completing her Master of Optometry with distinction at QUT in 2017. Kathryn loves the diversity optometry provides mixing fashion, health, science and technology across all ages. She is genuinely interested in getting to know you and finding the best visual solution for your lifestyle.
You will almost always find Kathryn in a pair of patterned pants and handmade earrings, whilst she hums musical items throughout your consultation.
