Consults during the pandemic
During the current pandemic our consultations are slightly different to normal. Telehealth options are available and recommended if you have any concerns with your eyes. If a face to face consultation is required this will be arranged. You will notice all staff wearing PPE in the practice, for your safety and ours. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have concerns with your eyes.
Damien Lonergan Optometrist
Consulting from YourGP@Denman allows Damien to focus on the needs of every patient without any sales pressure to buy spectacles or anything else. With interests in customised contact lens fitting, children's vision testing, myopia control and therapeutic interventions for eye disease Damien can offer thorough eye examinations without any pressure.
Get to Know Us
I have a wide variety of experience before finding my place as an Optometrist, which allows me to better understand your needs and concerns with your eye examinations.
YourGP@Denamn is a busy general medical practice in Canberra's western suburbs. Damien has started consulting here around other commitments. This practice is consulting only, so you will be given a copy of your prescription that you can then take to your preferred optical dispenser if you want new spectacles. YourGP@Denman can be contacted on (02) 6109 0000 or existing patients of YourGP can book through the website.

Eye examinations for children are extremely important, and very different to a standard eye examination you may be used to.
Damien is confident and thorough with testing children;s eyes, and will talk you through any findings, normal or otherwise.
Myopia or shortsightedness is becoming more and more common. This increase the number of people at risk of the complications associated with Myopia. The good news is there are things that can be done to reduce the rate of progression of Myopia.
Book an appointment with Damien to discuss myopia control options and what might work best for your situation.
