About Us

Liebig Street Warrnambool, circa 1960
Percy Street Portland, circa 1960

Our Warrnambool and Portland practices have been serving their communities since 1946, making them the two longest-standing optometry practices in regional Victoria. Matthew Buckis and Jayson Ward have been the proud owners since 2012, re-branding the practices to Portland Eyecare and Warrnambool Eyecare. The heritage of the practices have been shaped by past owners, including the Bennett Brothers, McMahon and Owen, who each brought fresh perspectives and new approaches. Building upon the foundation of their predecessors, Jayson and Matthew have continued to be adaptive, adopting the latest industry expertise and technology. In a modern renovated space, Warrnambool and Portland eyecare continue to deliver exceptional eyecare to their patients, now and for many years to come.
