Established in 2001, we’re proud to be an independent optometry practice in Capalaba, offering a personalized and tailored experience for all our customers. From offering comprehensive eye examinations where we’ll spend the time explaining everything about your eyes to you, to offering unique and individual eyewear.
Whether it’s eyewear on a budget or eyewear to make a statement about who you are, we can offer something for everyone.
We offer exceptional eyecare — outstanding eyewear.
Local and Independent
We’re proud to be based in Capalaba and be part of the local community. We’re not part of a multinational brand that caters for the masses, and our independence means we can tailor a solution for the individual that is you.
We’re constantly learning about the latest advances in eyecare and eyewear, so we can provide you with the best options in the care of your eyes. We’re passionate about your eye health and aim to provide the best possible care. We believe eyecare is not just about giving you a pair of glasses and sometimes we’ll just want to see you again for a regular review.
Passionate about style and good advice
We offer advice on vision solutions for sport, workplace and fashion and advice on maintaining good eye health. Our customers often comment that we’ve got the best range of spectacle frames in the area and we’d like to think so too and we love to be helpful and fun in getting the right look for you. Our goal for you is to receive compliments long after purchasing your Eyecatcher eyewear.
Born and educated in Brisbane and a graduate of Queensland Institute of Technology Optometry and a QUT graduate of Ocular Therapeutics, he’s the co-owner and optometrist at Eyecatcher Vision Care and is proud to provide his optometry services to the Redlands for over twenty five years.
After gaining experience working for larger corporate optometry practices, he realized he could provide a more personalized service without the constraints of large corporations and established what is now Eyecatcher Vision Care in 2001 with his business partner Catherine.
Outside of work he’s trying to get some respectability in his golf handicap and if he can combine it with travel he considers that a bonus.
Catherine is the co-owner of Eyecatcher Vision Care and loves being able to help create a personalized look and sometimes even guide them to think outside the square and help express their true personality.
She’s had over twenty three years in the optical industry and knows that her previous life studying art and image consultancy has been an asset in helping clients, but she’s not too sure if her previous career as a teacher has been an advantage.
In her time away from work, she loves spending time with her eccentric family and has discovered the wonderful world of travel whether it’s with her husband, or vicariously through the fantastic tales from her customers.
Kerryn loved the service so much she joined the practice. After being a customer of the practice for years, when the opportunity came to become part of the team in 2004, she embraced the challenge and has become a connoisseur of eyewear and expert in lenses. She loves being able to be help customers in choosing the most suitable frame and lenses for their needs, and having worn both contact lenses and glasses from childhood, she knows the importance of being given all the options to help you see better and feel comfortable with your decisions.
When she’s not at work, she’s a ‘greenie’ at heart, busy looking after a menagerie of animals at home that includes horses, cats, lorikeets, ducks, chickens and an understanding husband and daughters.
Kim has been with Eyecatcher Vision Care since 2008 and also loves being able to find eyewear to compliment a customer’s look. Whether it’s a classic look or something a little bit more artistic she loves being able to show everyone the variety of exciting frame choices available.
Out in the real world, Kim’s been involved with the Point Lookout Surf Life Saving Club and coaching one of the local netball teams, so she knows the benefit of wearing quality sunglasses. She’s also developed a desire for staying in lighthouses around Australia, with her husband and daughters, and realized that adult children are a bit more challenging than when they were younger.
