Who we are

The Independent Optometry Group is a 100% Kiwi member-owned cooperative of independent optometry practices with a clear mandate: to leverage the collective strength to drive growth while maintaining individual practice autonomy. Our goal is to help all our members enjoy prospering practices through the creation of streamlined operating procedures and providing a comprehensive support structure.

A Kiwi Co-Operative

We're a New Zealand co-operative network of independent clinically-centric optometrists established nearly two decades ago. We provide reliable and affordable eye care to all New Zealanders and we have a reputation for spending quality time with patients allowing our optometrists to understand their individual needs and advise them of the best solutions in their case.

KEEPING OUR STRENGTHS WHILE BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE

Visique has been a household name in New Zealand for a long time – and will continue to be!

As a group, we have made the decision that – while we will continue to support any practice who wishes to utilise the Visique name – they will no longer be required to use it.

Ultimately, our key focus is maintaining the strength of independent optometry in New Zealand in whichever way, shape, form or brand that may be.

A SELECTION OF OUR BRANDS

COVID-19 UPDATE

We take very seriously the health and safety of our patients and staff and are taking steps to ensure this is our highest priority. To assist us with this, please read the following information:

Before coming to an Independent Optometry Group practice please call ahead or email so we can assess how best to meet your needs. All contact details can be found here:

https://www.iogroup.co.nz/practice-locations/

The majority of our practices are open and those who are will most likely be able to assist with the following:

  • Your vision has suddenly changed, become blurry or you have new visual symptoms you are concerned about.
  • You have a painful or red eye
  • You have been advised to attend this practice by the Mid Central District Health Board, Health Line or another healthcare professional for urgent eye care
  • You have broken or lost your glasses and need a replacement pair to function
  • You have a problem with your contact lenses

If you currently have glasses on order please your practice for an update and so we can arrange for these to be couriered to you.

Contact lens supply for existing patients will also be done by courier at this time with practice pick-up options paused until further notice.
