Seeing is believing
Operating in Figtree Grove for over 20 years, Figtree Eyecare is a well-established destination for all your optical needs. It is family owned with a mother, uncle and two sisters all involved in the business. From bulk billed eye tests for adults and children to stylish frames and contact lenses, the store caters for all eyecare needs. The experienced optometrists can also undertake visual screening for Ocular Diabetes, Cataract and Glaucoma diagnosis and monitoring, plus provide laser surgery referrals for customers.
A familiar face for many locals, store manager Adam has been working at Figtree Eyecare for over 20 years. He grew up in Figtree, attended Figtree Primary School and Figtree High School. We asked Adam what he loves most about living in Wollongong. His answer? “Wollongong is God’s country. It’s got the ocean and mountains, plus Sydney or the South Coast is only an hour’s drive away”. We have to agree with you there! When he’s not working, Adam enjoys being involved in the local community. A keen touch footy player, he has been playing with the Wollongong Touch Association for over 20 years. In summer, Adam volunteers his time as an age manager for Corrimal Surf Life Saving Club.
In recent months, you may have noticed a small change with the store now partnering with Australian optical company George and Matilda. Their aim is to connect independent optometrists all across Australia.
Now that end of financial year is fast approaching, Adam would like to remind all customers whose health fund runs on a financial year calendar to “use it or lose it”. Pop in to get your eye test done, update your frames or stock up on those contact lenses. The store is also running a special offer with some selected frames complimentary and half price contact lenses.
Next time you’re at Figtree Grove, pop into the store and meet Adam and team.
