Our Team


I have been coming to Orewa Optics for 2 years with 2 of my children who have worn glasses since they were preschoolers. Petra and Grant and the team at Orewa Optics are always friendly and helpful on our many visits for getting the boys glasses adjusted and for regular check ups. We are always greeted by name and the boys are always happy to visit because they feel welcomed into the store. Grant has built a fantastic rapport with the boys and they feel at ease during their eye checks. The professional and personal service is always of a high level at Orewa Optics.

Thanks so much for the outstanding care you and your team at Orewa Optics have shown our children and their eye health. Playing golf is a revelation to Anna since she was fitted with Ortho K. Not wearing glasses or lenses throughout the day has made her life much easier, especially sport! Grant has explained every step of the way how her eyes are changing with Ortho K and she loves seeing the latest computer images at her checkups. We were also delighted that Sam’s condition was detected at an early stage and that preventative measures were able to be taken to hopefully prevent further deterioration in his eye sight. Your wonderful team of skilled staff, are always available to provide outstanding and friendly support to our children and have readily answered any questions they have had. Keep up the great work Orewa Optics!
