About practice

Welcome to our optometry practice. Richard Watt Optometrist is an independent full-scope optometry practice established in Hervey Bay since 1989. Full-scope optometry means we perform eye examinations, prescribe glasses and contact lenses, perform extensive additional diagnostic services, assist with low vision aids for partially sighted people, offer vision training and other services not available at other local optometry practices. We offer a wide range of quality frames, lenses and contact lenses to cover all your vision needs. We proudly prescribe and recommend top-quality German-precision Rodenstock spectacle lenses, some of the finest designed and manufactured spectacle lenses in the world. Many consultations are bulk-billed. Some of our high-tech diagnostic services are not covered by Medicare and so, attract a fee. We have Medicare Online for fast Medicare claiming refunds. Most private health claims can be submitted at the front desk. Our practice motto (and Richard’s personal mission in life) is Honest, Friendly, Professional. We apply this to every aspect of our practice to provide exceptional service. Come and visit our practice and see the difference for yourself. Our practice is located at 67 Main Street, Hervey Bay, 100 metres towards the beach from the roundabout at Main Street and Boat Harbour Drive.
