About Us

Wight Optometrists has been at the forefront of visual care for 50 years – consistently maintaining excellence in all forms of eye care. Our facilities include two examination rooms, a retinal scanner, an automated field screener, an optical coherence tomographer and an on-site workshop. Wight Optometrists have seen frames change over the years from a few very functional styles to fashion accessories that function well and also look stunning.  We also fit all types of contact lenses including for keratoconus.

History of Wight Optometrists

Wight Optometrists was established in 1962 by Michael Wight and for nearly 20 years it was the only practice in Auckland west of New Lynn. It has endured in Henderson from when it was a small village on a metal road down from Glendene to the bustling Waitakere City Centre that it is today. Michael Wight was the sole owner of Wight Optometrists for 40 years until 2002 and since
2002 it has been owned by Darryl Eastabrook. Wight Optometrists started as a small one room practice in Garden Place in Henderson, moved after a few years onto Great North Road and in 1985 moved upstairs where it stayed for 37 years. In 2002 the practice moved downstairs to its present site at 381 Great North Rd.

The practice has been a leader in eye-care throughout its history, from when contact lenses were first fitted to the first prescribing of therapeutic medication.
