Because fit and accuracy are important to us
We use Hoya True Sight technology to take precise measurements of your face and the frame to ensure your lenses are correctly positioned
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!!!!
Very happy with my new prescription sunglasses-thank you for the great service "under promised but over delivered"

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
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
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.

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 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.

Mike Callard has been looking after my eyes ever since I arrived in Tauranga 17 years ago and I have never felt the need to go anywhere else. Mike takes a great deal of care, and it is entirely due to his thoroughness that we caught both my glaucoma and my macular degeneration at the earliest possible stage. I can't stress enough the benefit of continuity and the comfort of knowing you can place your trust in the person who looks after your eyesight.
The whole team at Langford Callard are a warm and friendly bunch of people who provide a fantastic service.
Anne Harris-Tauranga (9 September 2013)
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.

Tim and Jane always make sure I have a thorough checkup whenever I visit, and I appreciate the detailed explanation they give me so that I know what is happening to my eyes.
Rosemary Granger-Tauranga (30 July 2013)
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-Tauranga (14 July 2013)
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-Tauranga (19 June 2013)
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.
