Experience you can Trust Since 1930

Our Experience

Whitehouse Optometrists has provided expert optical and eye health care for generations of families for over 80 years in the heart of the Sydney CBD. Our team comprising optometrists, optical dispensers and an on-site optical mechanic, each have over 15 years’ experience in their field.

Our Technology

We have invested in cutting edge technology developed to help us detect eye diseases early. Good eye health means much more than clear vision and sharp focus. Our technology can in some cases detect health issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure that relate to retinal abnormalities.

Frames & Lenses

We want you to walk away from Whitehouse Optometrists totally satisfied, with an improvement to your vision solution, whether you choose prescription glasses or contact lenses. We provide a great range of solutions for any issue and a variety of brands to choose from.


  • Eye Checks

    Regular eye checks are important for visual comfort and to detect eye disease. Regular checks keep your vision sharp as it changes over time but at Whitehouse Optometrists we look deeper. We also test your eye health using three kinds of advanced scanning including the latest OCT technology. Our instruments allow us to detect eye health issues, and in some cases general health issues that relate to retinal changes, before they become problems.

  • Glasses & Contacts

    We offer frames from the most innovative international brands to provide you with the latest styles and technology. This includes an extensive range of designer sunglasses and specialty sports eyewear.  We source the latest contact lenses for optimum comfort and eye health.

  • Your Visual Profile

    Every eye is different and so is every individual’s lifestyle and visual needs. At Whitehouse we are committed to understanding your specific visual needs based on your work, leisure activities and eye condition. We are then able to use our extensive experience to source the latest technology internationally to find a solution that suits you. This may include specialised frames, lenses, contact lenses or a combination of solutions.

We have an on-site optical mechanic to do in-house repairs and adjustments. All our staff are experts in their fields and have extensive experience.

What others say about us

Mrs. Margaret Bowman

When I bring in damaged frames for repair, having been squashed by dogs in a gale in Samoa or caught in the car door no-one blinks an eye, it is as if it is an everyday occurrence – all professionally dealt with, quickly and with ease. Some strenuous stretching and moulding to re-shape them and I saved the expense of new frames! The team were clearly experts.

Mr. Julian Cone

I was referred by my son’s eye doctor to Whitehouse Optometrists at St. Leonards for his new glasses. We’d had a number of problems with slipping glasses and even one pair of broken frames. Antony was professional, understanding and solved our problems. He was wonderful with James’s glasses and he took the time to explain to me (and James!) how best to care for the lenses.

Jody suggested that I try a portable handheld PocketViewer magnifier and a SmartView closed circuit television. Whitehouse have a great range of products.
