Covid update from Fri 3rd December -Orange traffic light 

At this stage we have been advised that we do not need to ask your vaccination status before you make an appointment to visit us.

All our staff are vaccinated & will be masked as necessary.

When entering our practices, we ask you to adhere to the Ministry of Health guidelines on distancing, tracer app, hand sanitising and masks.

Please ensure you do not arrive earlier than your consult time; this is to ensure we minimise the congestion in our waiting room.

If you need a support person with you, we request you only bring 1 person.

All collections of contact lenses, glasses, frame adjustments & repairs to glasses will need to have an appointment to help congestion.

Before all appointments you will be asked the Covid screening questions.

If you are unwell & have an appointment, we ask you to ring to change your appointment time until you are symptom free.


Please be kind to our staff as we all adjust to the new traffic light system. All our decisions have been made by direction from the Ministry of Health & the Optometrist & Dispensing Opticians Board NZ.

Harrington Eyecare Nelson and Richmond

Our optometrists are committed to providing the highest quality eye care in a caring environment.

From our two central locations in Nelson and Richmond all of our optometrists are eye care specialists. Whether you need an initial eye examination to see if you require eye glasses or are seeking advice about contact lenses, we are here to help.

The optometrists from Harrington Eyecare have led the way in servicing the Nelson Tasman region for well over 30 years and are more than happy to advise on the best form of eye care for you.

  • Eye glasses – these days, eye glasses will not only improve your sight, they can be a fashion statement. We have one of the largest selections of eye glasses including designer brands in the Nelson region. e.g. Face a Face, La Font, FLEYE, Vanni, Nike and others.
  • Contact lenses – just like a shoe, one size of contact lenses doesn’t fit everybody. For maximum comfort our optometrists will evaluate and fit the perfect contact lenses for your eye shape. And your contact lenses can even be used to change or enhance your eye colour.

Our optometrists and support staff are very experienced with over 150 years servicing the vision and eye health industry in the Nelson Tasman region. We are here to look after every facet of you and your family’s eye care needs.
