Westgate Optometrists is the original and exclusive optometry practice at Westgate Shopping Centre. We attract a very loyal clientele from years of providing consistently caring and outstanding customer service.
As an independent practice, we don't promote a 'one size fits all' approach, as we know everyone is unique, with different visual needs. We take the time to understand your needs and desires first, and together with a comprehensive exam, we can determine the best option for each individual.
The overwhelming positive feedback we receive is centred around our attentive service, and the honest guidance we provide to our clientele before they make their final decision. Contact us to have your own Westgate experience today!
