They’ll also address any questions or concerns you may have about your eye health so that you can make informed decisions about your treatment plan.
Eye Conditions in Maleny
Hyperopia, or farsightedness, causes difficulty seeing nearby objects clearly. Eyeglasses and contact lenses are recommended remedies for this eye condition.
Astigmatism is caused by an irregularly shaped cornea, which leads to light focusing incorrectly on multiple points on the retina. This results in blurred vision. Corrective measures for astigmatism include eyeglasses and contact lenses.
People aged 40 and above often develop presbyopia, which is also known as age-related farsightedness. This visual problem causes difficulty focusing on nearby objects, which makes everyday tasks like reading challenging. Contact lenses or multifocal lenses can be used to correct presbyopia.
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, causes people to experience difficulty seeing distant objects clearly. It results from either an elongated eyeball or an overly curved cornea, and it typically starts in childhood and can worsen during adolescence. Eyeglasses and contact lenses are used to correct myopia.
Dry eye syndrome is caused by the eyes creating poor-quality or low quantity tears. We identify the root causes of your dry eye symptoms and develop a personalised treatment strategy to offer long lasting relief.

Eye Disease Diagnosis and Treatment
Prompt diagnosis and intervention for eye diseases not only prevents vision loss and blindness, but also promotes good eye health.
Our eye doctors use advanced technology to screen for eye disorders such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
Eye Disease Management in Maleny
Glaucoma is caused by heightened pressure within the eye, which can permanently damage the optic nerve. Typically, symptoms only show after significant vision loss has occurred, but we’re able to detect glaucoma using our optical equipment and treat it in its early stages.
Cataracts are the clouding of the eye's lens, which causes visual issues like blurriness. If left unaddressed, cataracts can lead to blindness. Our cataract co-management services include pre-and post-operative care and referrals to a trusted ophthalmologist for cataract removal.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a progressive eye disease caused by the degeneration of the macula. This is the part of the eye that's responsible for central vision. There are 2 types of AMD: dry and wet. Dry AMD is the most common type, and wet AMD progresses more rapidly and can cause severe vision loss. Even though there’s no cure for AMD, early detection and treatment can help slow or stop its progression.
Diabetic Eye Care
People with diabetes need regular eye examinations to manage the disease and protect their eyesight. This is because diabetes can lead to diabetic retinopathy, which damages the blood vessels in the retina, and can result in vision loss or blindness if left untreated.
