About Us

What makes us unique?

BONEHAM | PETERS OPTOMETRIST has been in practice since 1984. Our name has changed a few times in that period but most things have stayed the same. The biggest constant is our passion for vision and eye care.

We are proud to still have patients who have been coming since our inception, and remain passionate about taking care of our patients’ sight and style. Our optometrists are actively involved in graduate and postgraduate education of their colleagues both nationally and internationally, so are up to date with the latest research.

We are not here to be average. We do our own buying, and the sky is truly the limit with the frames that we stock. We search the globe for unique frames so that our patients can look their best, we want to make frame selection enjoyable. One of our favourite things is when a new patient arrives and is excited that they have so many choices that they love! We also make sure we have frames for different face sizes, shapes and prescriptions.
