Introducing Harris Blake & Parsons
Harris Blake & Parsons is so much more than just a shop that sells glasses. We are a community-minded optometry practice dedicated to taking care of your vision and eye health in both the long and short term.
Serving our community for over sixty years, we’re a longstanding practice known for our in-depth knowledge, first-class care and friendly, professional service. Our team is highly experienced and qualified, with in-depth knowledge of both eyewear products as well as expert eyecare techniques. We are passionate about all things optical and committed to delivering service that exceeds your expectations.
We were founded in 1957 by Wolf Gartner. Wolf first established the Ringwood practice before starting a visiting practice in Croydon in 1961. Not long after, he formed a partnership with Ross Harris and in 1969 the pair were joined by Terry Blake.
We’ve since had three other partners including Brett Parsons who became a partner when Wolf retired in 1990, Linda Harwood who became a partner when Ross retired in 2008, and our most recent partner, Dina Anastas who took up the position when Terry retired in 2013.
