Our History

our history

St. Kilda Eyecare began back in 1989 when, as young optometrists, we wanted to set up our own independent optometry practice. 

From the beginning, a focus on quality within a casual, laid back St Kilda environment was important.

Our first location was a small store in the Woolworths Arcade. A relaxed premium level of service incorporating excellent clinical examinations and a choice of interesting, individual frame selection became important elements of our practice. We have always been at the forefront of contact lens developments, using the latest materials and designs, including astigmatic and multifocal correction.


A move to the Acland Court development in 1999 enabled a larger range of frames and more comfort for our patients. After 10 years inside the arcade, we moved to the entrance of Acland Court on bustling Acland Street.

Then in 2018, we relocated across the road to 159 Acland street to our new custom designed practice located in the store under the iconic rocket awning.

Now over 30 years in practice, all of us at  St Kilda Eyecare are proud of our boutique optometry practice providing eyecare services to the local village community of St Kilda and surrounding suburbs.

We continue to provide clinical examinations 6 days a week utilizing the latest specialized diagnostic equipment. Our friendly staff takes great pride in selecting the right frame to suit your personality and style.

We look forward to assisting you.
