About Cassidy Eyecare
Cassidy Eyecare is owned and operated by Troy and Stephanie Cassidy. Between us we have over 30 years of experience in the optical industries of New Zealand, Australia and the UK. We are West Auckland born and bred, and still live locally.
We are members of the New Zealand Association of Optometrists, the NZ Cornea and Contact Lens Society, Glaucoma NZ, and the Australasian College of Behavioural Optometrists. We are also licensed vision examiners for Maritime NZ, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and the NZ Police.
Our philosophy of practice is to provide personal eyecare to our patients, using the best instrumentation and technology. We are not part of a corporate chain, and we don't employ a succession of locum optometrists which change every time you visit. We take the time to understand your vision, and can provide the consistent ongoing eyecare you've been looking for.
To help support healthy vision in our community, we donate $2 to Glaucoma New Zealand for every spectacle frame we sell.
Troy graduated from the University of Auckland optometry programme in 1995. He completed a 2 year post-graduate qualification in Ocular Therapeutics in 2009, and the Glaucoma Prescriber course in 2015, allowing him to prescribe antibiotic, anti-allergy and glaucoma eye drops to treat common eye diseases. His particular optometry interests lie in contact lens fitting, glaucoma and dry eye therapy.
Stephanie is a graduate of the University of Auckland, and has practiced optometry in both the private and public sector. Her areas of optometric interest are in the management of children’s vision problems, vision training and behavioural optometry. In 2017 Stephanie completed her Certificate in Ocular Therapeutics, a 2 year programme that allows her to prescribe medications to treat common eye disorders.
