Noosa Optometrist - Est. 1989
Noosa Optical is an independent Optometrist in Noosa Junction, 100% owned & operated by Catherine and Shane Tromp. We're a family business, invested in world class technology. This makes Noosa Optical one of a kind and definitely not a chain store!

Our Optometrists cover all aspects of eye health and vision using cutting edge technology and a personal approach. No matter how complex your eye health or vision problem may be, we'll find the best solution for you.
Above all, we place your long term vision and eye health first. Looking after your most precious sense is why we're here.
Welcome to Noosa Optical.
Why Choose Noosa Optical?
With so many eyecare options available, how do you know you're choosing the best for your eyes? Here's just a few reasons to consider us.
Contact Lenses Dispensed
We’re a 100% independent Optometrist. In other words, Noosa Optical is not a large retail company or franchise chain. We’re free to prescribe what’s best for you. The primary focus of our Optometrists is your long term eye health and vision. In addition, our optical dispensers have access to a complete range of prescription lenses. They can fill complicated prescriptions and are free to source unique eyewear.
Australian Made Eyewear
We source Australian made eyewear. Our range of products also includes spectacle frames made on the Sunshine Coast. Our prescription spectacle lenses are supplied through Australian laboratories. We assemble spectacles on site and our access to local repair centres means we can also repair your glasses locally. To be direct, we don’t focus on cheap imports. We look for local quality and service.
World Class Technology by Zeiss
Noosa Optical has invested in world class technology by Zeiss, because basic technology just isn’t good enough. Our equipment isn’t for show. It’s gold standard. Therefore, our Optometrists can diagnose and manage your eye health, accurately. The best way to protect your eye health, is accurate and early detection. Early detection relies upon the precision of the equipment.
More Consultation Time Per Patient
We allocate 40 minutes to each appointment, so we’re flexible to fully understand your individual needs. In other words, our Optometrists have the time to go beyond just a basic screening for glasses. We’ll complete a detailed vision assessment followed by a comprehensive eye health check. There will be time to discuss your results along the way. After that, we’ll provide a personalised recommendation rather than a one size fits all fix.
Part Of The Community
Noosa Optical is a local business and we live, shop and work locally. We’ve worked with local kindergarten and primary schools, providing a free community service to local children between the ages of 3-6 years at participating schools. We support the Australian branch of Optometry Giving Sight and also Lions Recycle for Sight.
We Won’t Compromise Your Vision
When it comes to spectacle frames and lenses, you get what you pay for. We won’t compromise your vision with inferior products. There are vast differences in the quality of eyewear. For that reason, we’ll give you the facts, so you can make an informed decision. Certainly the choice of lens is important, but a good quality frame will also influence the outcome of your vision.
Eye Care For The Whole Family
We’re here to provide eye care for the whole family. The chances are we look after you, your children and in many cases your parents as well. We provide eye health checks for children from 6 months of age up to 16 years, probably the most important years. Furthermore, Medicare will fully reimburse our consultation fees for kids.
Long Term Vision Solutions
Our view is that a long term vision solution is best for you. In other words, helping you to achieve the best possible vision, for the longest possible time. We start with preventative eye health care for earlier diagnosis. In addition, we’ll support your vision with quality eyewear which lasts longer and ultimately, costs you less.
LINDBERG frames are unlike any other spectacle frame. You choose the shape, materials and size. Your frame is then made to order. Exceptionally designed and crafted from premium materials, LINDBERG frames have no screws, rivets, or welds. So they are remarkably strong, yet lightweight. We are the only stockist on the Sunshine Coast.
Continuity Of Clinical Eyecare
Continuity of clinical eyecare means you’ll see the same Optometrist today and in years to come. So, we’ll understand your history and can monitor even minor changes in your eye health and vision. We get to know your eyes, so you don’t have to re-introduce us every time. Moreover, Noosa is our home and we’re here for the long term, rather than a short stint.
What We Do
Noosa Optical offers a comprehensive range of eye examinations. We're a full service Optometrist. So we're equipped to provide detailed examinations for glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinal diagnosis as well as routine eye tests and driving vision tests. Our Optometrists handle complex eye conditions and are able to prescribe eye drops and medications.
How We Do It
We're focused on providing a better experience. We do this through:
Our consultations are longer, so our Optometrists have the time to look at more than just your glasses. A thorough eye health check up shouldn't be rushed.
We're free to prescribe what is best for you. We’re not constrained by corporate guidelines or franchise arrangements. Your individual needs can be met.
World Class Technology
Our equipment is gold standard for eye health. So it will make a meaningful difference to your long term vision. It's purpose is not to automate your eye test.
Quality Of Products
We're constantly trying out newer, improved products on ourselves. Therefore we know which products will provide the best outcomes for you.
