SPECS is a locally owned optometrist on High St, Northcote. Born out of love for the finer details, we carry a unique collection of eye wear sourced from small independent designers around the world. Selected for their thoughtful design, craft and materials, we focus on pieces that strike the perfect balance between function and form.

We provide comprehensive eye testing and offer the latest imaging technology to monitor your eyes for conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. Keeping you looking good and seeing well is our priority.

We invite you to explore the possibilities and discover a new look from our collection, or simply pop in to say hello.
