This notice is to let you know that as at June 30 2018 we closed the doors in Queen Street.

For the past 40 years we have been honoured to serve the eyecare needs of so many patients at the John Mountford Optometrist Practice in Queen Street, Brisbane.

I will be retiring from full time practice at this time. We are relocating the day to day Optometry practice to Clarity Optometrists at Bulimba and I will be joining Clarity Optometrists on a part time basis until April 2019. They will hold your health records for your ongoing care.

As I step away from full time practice, I would like to ensure that you continue to receive the best of care and to introduce you to the great team at Clarity Optometrists led by Dr Ann Webber.

It has been a pleasure being part of the lives of so many patients over the years and I feel confident in introducing you to Ann, who I have known for more than 30 years, and her team. You should feel comfortable in contacting Ann and her team for any of your ongoing needs.
