It is now 3 weeks since my bilateral cataract surgery. I would like to thank Mike for his good advice and encouragement over a period of two years explaining the course and effect of my advancing cataracts which was entirely accurate. I have not seen this well since I was in my teen years. Mikes advice was right on.

I cannot speak highly enough of the overall service, advice and guidance over the past few years. Your front of house staff are invariable welcoming and cheerful and provide a superb service whether referring me to a technician or to yourself. Invariably when you wear glasses continuously there are mishaps and, occasionally, minor damage usually to frames. Your staff have always provided a rapid and effective remedy to the odd problems I have encountered. Thank you to you and your staff and technicians – it is always a comfort to know that help is at hand when needed!

Had to see an optometrist about an on going eye issue,called tauranga Eyecare and got a same day appointment (15 minute urgent one) and was seen by Clare who was extremely thourough,professionl and friendly. Very impressed from start to finish from the welcoming front counter staff to my consult. Highly reccommend this business.
From my reminder to my appointment-Claire and the team were friendly and welcoming that immediately put you at ease. Would not hesitate to reccommend Tauranga Eyecarere
I have been a full-time contact lens wearer since Mike fitted me with my first pair in 1997. Since this time, Mike has always ensured I'm wearing the correct contacts in order to keep my eyes in the best possible health.

Mike and the team at Langford Callard have been looking after my eyes for over 30 years now. When I was at primary school they fitted me with my 1st pair of glasses, then contact lenses as a teenager, and I'm now in my 30's and they're still looking after my eyes!
Claire Gregory
I decided to give contact lenses a go after many years of wearing glasses. Celia fitted me with one pair of contact lenses to try, and then got me back each week to trial a more advanced strength and check the health of my eyes. I've had excellent service from Celia, and I'm very happy with my contact lenses.
Jenny Zimmerman
Having been diagnosed with Keratoconus in 1999 I have needed speciality contact lenses. These lenses are forever evolving and Mike has always had the information on these advancements and designs. Mike is very thorough and my eyes thank him for it.
Aaron Cave
Mike and the team at Langford Callard have looked after my eyes since I moved to Tauranga in 2005. Being VERY sort sighted, I've kept the team busy, but Mike and his team have always been excellent. Whether I've needed progressive lenses, contact lenses, or an annual eye exam, Mike and the team have always been friendly and professional. Mike was the first to notice I had early cataracts, and made the appropriate referral to a specialist for surgery. My eyesight has since improved 100%-I can now drive without glasses! I trust Langford Callard totally with my vision.

I was recommended to see Mike from my previous optometrist in Auckland. He re-assessed the balance between my contact lens and spectacle wear.He suggested some changes and provided the opportunity to trial new contact lenses for me to decide if the new combination was better for me in day to day activities. It has worked out a much more convenient option and I now have all situations covered.
Mike fitted me with daily contact lenses in 2010 when I noticed that my vision finding yachting marks had dropped off. I made the New Zealand Olympic yachting team for London finishing 5th in the 470s. I am now in the Narca 17 and I am hoping to be selected for Rio 2016. As a sportsman I am always looking for any advantage and that includes having the best possible vision. Thank you for the sponsorship of my contact lenses.

Heartfelt thanks Thank you for the great service. These glasses are amazing and I am now getting vision that is close to perfect. I can not believe how much I was missing in my world. Please pass on my delight and gratitude to both my optometrist Mike and Sharon the technician. You make a great team. I really thought that my eyes were deteriorating and I just had to put up with diminished vision. These new glasses will make life so much easier. Thank you to the whole team. Best regards Colleen.
I recently received some new glasses with inbuilt prism to compensate for nerve damage in my eye as a result of a motor vehicle accident. I would like to thank Mike for the excellent job he has done. The glasses work far better than I expected. I no longer need to cock my head, or squint to avoid seeing double. My neck pain has subsequently vanished. In addition people have commented on how stylish my new glasses look.
Very happy with my new prescription sunglasses-thank you for the great service "under promised but over delivered"
In any organisation I have visited in 20 odd years ,I have never been more impressed by any other staff members more than Kayla, Amy and low vision specialist optometrist Lynley. Their attention towards you as a patient was second to none. Just tops!!!!
Previously it was found by a bio energy programme that "blue light" was affecting my eyes. Thank you Celia and the team at Langford Callard Optometrists-the new glasses are great. They contain the blue light factor and I now find that my eyes are not squinting and definitely more relaxed. Most impressed with this new technology.
I'm so thrilled with my new spectacles-they look and feel fantastic. Thank you so much to my optometrist Lynley and the team at Langford Callard Optometrists
Barbara Madden
Our daughter is so happy with her new lenses. She tells us that they have made a big difference to her reading which has always been a struggle. The whole experience was far superior to other optometrists we have been to. I would recommend Mike to all. Thanks guys.
I have been a client of Langford Callard (now Tauranga Eyecare) for many years & have always found them professional & capable when dealing with my eye care which is complex. Mike Callard, in particular, has been empathetic & committed to dealing with my needs as I have become more geriatric - and probably more demanding & difficult! Thanks for persisting, Mike, and helping me to get on the cataract surgery list. Your effort is much appreciated!
As my previous optician had retired and his old practice had moved to an inconvenient location I had to find a new team to get my glasses sorted when I lost a lens. I decided to go to the closest outlet to work - Tauranga Eye Care. I am so glad I did. Easy off street parking was a good start, Jane and Tania on reception were pleasant and professional. Julia tested my sight in a thoroughly professional manner whilst also being very pleasant. And then fun began. I'd decided to get new frames. The three ladies Jane, Tania and Julia were helpful, considerate and efficient. We tried a number of frames, some worked some didn't. In the end we narrowed the selection down to three for approval from my family. The ladies were patient, helpful, thoroughly professional, and fun! Next day I went back for the final selection and made a decision. A few day later (much earlier than I expected) I had new glasses that fit perfectly and I can see clearly again. I would never have believe that I could enjoy the process of getting new glasses so much. I have no hesitation in recommending Tauranga Eye Care to anyone who wants professional service from lovely people. Julia, Jane and Tania were JUST AWESOME!! I expect good service, if I'm surveyed 5 out of 10 is acceptable - I'll come again. Your ladies scored 1,000,000!!! I almost want to lose another lens so I can come back! Please make sure Julia, Jane and Tania are aware just how much I appreciate how brilliant they are. And Merry Christmas to you all.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation of the considerate way that Celia cares for my eyes. The professional and friendly way that she helped me choose my specs which are the most comfortable that I have ever had. I would recommend Celia to anybody. Thank you so much.
Mary Kemble
I had an eye examination at Tauranga Eyecare to fulfill the visual requirements for my Civil Aviation certification. The eye exam with Mike was very professional with all the test results including retinal imaging provided. The reception experience, customer service and all the other aspects of my exam was exemplary. Highly recommended.
A big thank you to Mike and the team at Omokoroa Eyecare. Your service is absolutely first class and the glasses are fabulous.
Thanks to the whole team at Tauranga Eyecare, initially I saw Mike Callard who explained to me everything that was going on with my eyesight. I have now received my occupational glasses and they are perfect. The whole team has been a pleasure to work with and I cant wait to get my sunglasses and everyday glasses.
I had new lenses installed into my existing frames last week I have to say these new lenses are 200% better than the originals. These have very little distortion. It is so refreshing to look slightly off centre and not to have everything look like a banana, especially in my job as a builder making sure walls, doors and windows are straight.
