Charlestown Eyecare has been offering comprehensive optical care for locals and residents within the City of Lake Macquarie and Newcastle for more than 30 years. We are a locally owned practice with Paul Dougherty as head optometrist, a prominent figure within the industry who has years of experience and specialised knowledge.

Our Services

We provide comprehensive eye examinations, including glaucoma and macular assessment, children’s behavioural evaluation and automated fields. We also assess and manage dry eye patients and are competent in fitting rigid and soft contact lenses. Finally, we often treat and manage eye injuries and infections. Krysta can prescribe topical antibiotics, antivirals and steroids when needed.

Referral to an eye surgeon is readily given where surgery or secondary medical care may be required. We offer a range of contact lenses, glasses and prescription sunglasses. At Charlestown Eyecare, see clearly now and pay later with Afterpay.
