Honest Advice On Prescription Eyewear and Sunglasses


Glasses can sometimes be a confusing purchase with a plethora of options for optical stores, frame styles, lens options, and conflicting marketing online.


At Carina Eye Care, I help you with the decision-making process by providing you with my honest opinion on what is actually necessary to avoid unnecessary spending, yet provide practical solutions.


Being an independent optometry practice means that I have no particular ties to any supplier, and therefore am able to access almost any product on the market. I also am a glasses and contact lens wearer myself, so I understand what it's like to wear glasses.


My personal priorities for glasses selection are:


  • Comfort of the frame (fits well)
  • Style (suits my personality)
  • Durability (avoid fragile styles and materials)
  • Weight of lenses (suitable to the prescription)
  • Practicality (photochromatic/polarised etc.)
  • Pricing (reasonable)

This is why I make sure that my collection includes:

  • Both Asian-fit and Western-fit spectacle & sunglass frames in lightweight nylon, Italian acetate, and metal
  • K-pop, modern, chic, timeless, and conservative styles
  • Children specific lightweight and strong eyewear
  • Flexibility to order in designer frames & specialty eyewear
  • Budget No-Gap Eyewear range
  • Premium top-quality Eyewear ranges
  • Certified Safety Eyewear for vocational use, hobbies, or simply extra protection
  • Cycling or lifestyle eyewear such as Mallee Bull 
  • Dry Eye management specific eyewear such as 7Eye and Ziena

Dr Carina Trinh has found that many of her patients have reported never having had glasses so light and comfortable before they have shopped at Carina Eye Care.
