 On the 23rd March 1985, Ian opened the practice only a few doors up at 19 Gymea Bay Rd. 

 Since then fashions have changed, new designers have come and gone and technology has progressed in leaps and bounds and after 38 years Ian has hung up the phoropter and handed the reigns over to his son Brenton and our Optometrist Leilei Zhou.

 With a passion for customer care and a keen interest in Dry Eye Management Leilei began the journey of adding Gymea Dry Eye Clinic to IC Optometrist. We look forward to serving our customers in Como and neighbouring suburbs to give you relief from this prevalent condition.

Getting Relief from Dry Eyes in Como

  3. Lid Debridement and Meibomian Gland Expression: For cases of Meibomian Gland Disease, we provide specialized procedures to improve the function of your Meibomian glands, promoting better tear production and ocular comfort.

  4. Moisture Chamber Spectacles: We offer moisture chamber spectacles designed to create a protective environment around your eyes, reducing exposure to dry and irritating conditions.

  5. Prescription Eye Drops: Our tailored approach may include the use of prescription eye drops, such as steroids and cyclosporins, to manage inflammation and improve tear film stability.
