Welcome to our optometry practice. Richard Watt Optometrist is an independent full-scope optometry practice established in Hervey Bay since 1989.

Our practice motto (and Richard’s personal mission in life) is Honest, Friendly, Professional. We apply this to every aspect of our practice to provide exceptional service. Come and visit our practice and see the difference for yourself.

Our Services

We practice full-scope optometry. This means we perform eye examinations, prescribe glasses and contact lenses, perform extensive additional diagnostic services, assist with low vision aids for partially sighted people, offer vision training and other services not available at other local optometry practices.

You can read more on our Eyecare page and our Equipment page.


A new year is an exciting time to refresh and see things from a new perspective. As we evolve, so do the latest developments in eyecare. Whatever 2019 brings, with healthy vision, we can help you and your family make it even better than the last.
