We're excited to be involved in fitting some freaky contact lenses for a major Hollywood motion picture being filmed right here in Queensland. We can't wait to see our contact lens handiwork on the big screen!


April 2019

We now offer hand painted soft scleral contact lenses for patients with eye injuries or major disfigurement of their eyes, including now being able to make eyes look straight again. These lenses help us restore the best possible cosmetic appearance for patients. We receive many referrals for cosmetic lenses from private ophthalmologists and the eye clinics at the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, Mater Hospital, QLD Children's Hospital and PA Hospital and the newest hand painted soft scleral lenses have helped us even further help these patients better than before.

Zenlens adds yet another excellent option in our mission to restore the vision in patients with corneal diseases such as keratoconus and patients with corneal grafts.

We are pleased to now be one of the few practices worldwide to offer Wavefront Optimised Scleral Contact Lenses. These offer a new level of clarity for patients with corneal diseases such as keratoconus, corneal grafts, pellucid marginal degeneration and unusual refractive errors. We utilise the same Nidek OPDIII wavefront aberrometer used by premier laser eye surgery clinics around the world. This significant investment in technology keeps us at the forefront of contact lens fitting.
