Please feel free to drop by and enjoy a freshly brewed coffee with us while we discuss the best solution for your eyes here at our Tauranga branch.
Right in the middle of Tauranga, just off ‘Red Square’ you will find our optometrist store in the old building that used to house the Regent Cinema back in the early times. The original concrete floor, walls, pillars, & ceiling still remain, characterising the space. Our stock may be modernist, but our Tauranga optometrist store is vintage industrial, collectable and chic.
We are a staff of qualified Optometrists & Dispensing Opticians in Tauranga and a couple of clued up training-to-be dispensing opticians. Stuart Laing and Haidee Mannix are our married to each other and married to the business optometrists. Devon Palairet is the guy that turns ideas into reality out front and has been at our Tauranga optician since day one. Kayla Rillstone is currently doing the hard yards to qualify as a Dispensing Optician, following 5 years of experience round the traps.
The specs and sunglasses that feature at our Tauranga optometrist are mostly direct-from-source boutique eyewear makers. You may or may not have heard of Anne et Valentin, Theo, Dita, Mykita, or Vinylize, but they are some of the designers that characterise the optical industry at the pointy end of things. These designers are the people that influence industry and whose ideas the ’big name’ brands rip off. Lens-wise, we prefer to use Shamir (Israeli technology from Brisbane in this part of the world) & Hoya (Japanese tech specialists).
