Blinded by the night? At Bayside Optical, we know that road safety starts with good vision, and that means seeing well at all distances, in all conditions – particularly at night.
While reduced visibility at night poses additional risk to all drivers, Australians with uncorrected vision are at an even greater risk due to an impaired ability to detect and respond to potential dangers.

Every parent wants to ensure their child reaches all their developmental and educational milestones.
But for a child to perform at their best, their eyes need to as well. Did you know that children rely on their vision for 80% of their learning?
In our comprehensive children’s eye test, we not only evaluate the clarity of your child’s vision, we examine the internal and external health of the eyes and assess how well they work together as a team. If required, we provide a tailored eyecare solution that considers lifestyle and vision needs.
Good vision is crucial for a child’s educational, physical and social development.
Every parent wants to ensure their child sees every opportunity coming their way. But for a child to perform at their best, their eyes need to be working at their best as well.
Children often assume their vision is just like everyone else’s, which means that vision problems can easily go undetected. In fact, a staggering 1 in 5 kids have an undetected vision problem that can interfere with their ability to learn and absorb information.
Look out for the symptoms:
Put an eye test on your back-to-school checklist
Whether they’re just starting out or well into their schooling, adding an eye test to your back-to-school list this year will give you peace of mind that your child won’t miss a thing.
