We're OPEN!  Under Level 1 we are open for business, with a few small changes from pre-COVID days.
Please use the hand sanitiser at the counter on entry.  If you are at increased risk of COVID19 then we will use a surgical mask and ask you also to wear one for your examination.
If you are sick then stay home as we will not be examining you and do not want you around other people in the practice.

Level 3 means we are now Open! Sort of...contactless only. - 7th May 2020

Under Level 3 precuations we have staff on site in reception, and in separate areas as required to make glasses up and do emergency eye exams.  We are operating "click and collect" so we can get your card details over the phone and then leave out contact lenses etc on our sanitised table by the door for you to collect.
We use face shields with social distancing, and offer customers surgical masks to use during in-store visits.
Please email office@bridgmaneyecare.nz or call 03 477 9085 shoudld you need us for anything.
Level 2 should mean a return to normal trading, but with sanitisation, masks, and limits on numbers in each area.


We are now at 218 George Street Dunedin.  Our new premises include a third consultation room and a second electronics diagnostic room for even better service and even more high tech!   Look out for our turquoise colours, bold new signage, and "wall art" style murals in the Harvest Court mall (Mall 218), they make a real impact!   

David Bridgman attains Registered Glaucoma Prescriber status - 23rd Jul 2018

David Bridgman attains Registered Glaucoma Prescriber status Experienced Optometrists in NZ are now able to apply to prescribe medications for the treatment of glaucoma, which is a potentially blinding eye disease.  For many years we have been diagnosing this condition.  NZ Optometry has a long history of safely and effectively treating eye disease with both eyedrops and sytemic medications, so it is only logical that we now can offer longer term treatments including for glaucoma.
David Bridgman has now completed his hours in Dunedin and Invercargill Hospitals and attained Registered Glaucoma Prescriber status.
For more information on Glaucoma, see http://www.glaucoma.org.nz
All of our optometrists are members of Glaucoma NZ (GNZ) and take an active pert in its educational activites.

Myopia Control with an Eyedrop now available in Dunedin and Balclutha - 12th Jun 2017

Myopia Control with an Eyedrop now available in Dunedin and Balclutha It's here - 0.01% Atropine drops, as shown to work in the ATOM study!   These are practically free of side effects as they are only 1/100th of the standard dose of this drug for other uses, and yet they have enough action on the eye to reduce the rate at which shortsightedness (myopia) worsens by about 60%.  They act on Muscarinic receptors in the eye to slow or halt excess growth in length of the eye.  This reduces the final amount of myopia suffered by a treated child when they reach adulthood, and naturally stop growing, to less than it would otherwise be.   Therefore we can reduce both the need for glasses and also the risk of blindness from eye disease.
For more information, please make an appointment with any of our optometrists, who can arrange a prescription for you.
