Home > Our Practice
Leverett & Kindler has been an independent and Australian owned practice since our beginnings in 1966.
With over 55 years of experience, we are well accustomed to serving the eyecare needs of the Greensborough and broader community. Our optometrists take the time to listen and provide clear diagnoses with honest treatment advice. We utilise state of the art diagnostic technology. Independence gives us the freedom to use Australian lens labs and to stock a wide variety of fashionable and comfortable frames. We liaise with a network of local ophthalmologists, doctors, schools and Maternal and Child Health nurses. At Leverett & Kindler we take pride in comprehensive and quality care for all.
Frank Kindler establishes his new optometric practice in a small shop in Grimshaw Street, with the goal of providing outstanding eye care well before Greensborough Plaza had been built.
Greensborough Plaza is built and Leverett & Kindler is one of the original shops to take up residence in the centre. As the practice grows, Mark Leverett accepts tenure. Leverett & Kindler gains community notoriety for having honest and respected optometrists.

By now the practice is thriving and Frank hands over the reins to Mark Leverett. The business continues to grow, employing five full and part-time optometrists.
After 40 continuous years trading in Greensborough Plaza, Leverett & Kindler is well known and trusted throughout the community. Amelia Na Jiao joins Mark in management and with her strong interest in behavioural optometry establishes a paediatric unit known as L&K Kids.
Having grown out of our premises, Leverett & Kindler moves to a purpose-built practice just a few shops away from the previous site. Boasting four consulting rooms, three diagnostic rooms and a child friendly kids’ room, the spacious practice offers a welcoming and modern feel. In addition, there is an increased capacity for frames and an onsite lab.
