From humble beginnings in Edgeworth in 2007, Edgey Specs was established as a family business with the vision to provide Novacastrians with good old-fashioned service and professional knowledge to be an optometrist that Newcastle could rely on.

In the year 2015, a sister practice to Edgeworth was born. Edgey Specs Civic is conveniently located in the heart of Newcastle, just a hop-skip and jump away from Darby St, Civic Park and the University of Newcastle’s NewSpace.

Fast track to 2020, and we’re still just as passionate about optometry and eyewear as ever. We still provide service and advice to families that have been with us right from the start.



We have maintained our independence within Newcastle and grown a knowledgeable local team over the years. We’ve got a keen eye for detail, and we aren’t driven by selling masses amounts of stock. So, you can sleep at night knowing that the frames you take home were the perfect pair for you!

It’s in our DNA to be different we are not your typical optometrist. Not only in the services that we provide but our relationship with our customers too. You won’t find in-and-out rushed appointments here, just quality service and advice with the needs of our patients at the heart of every eye examination.

Our Range

At Edgey Specs we’re a magnet for individuality because there’s no face quite like yours! We’re big preachers of intertwining the traditional characteristics of eyewear with bold, modern silhouettes and understated details. Being an Independent Newcastle Optometrist, we have the freedom to source frames from anywhere we choose. We hold a special place in our hearts for Australian designed and/or made eyewear such as Sass & Bide, Valley Eyewear and Paul Taylor.

Between our two Newcastle Optometrist practices, our shelves are jam-packed with over 900 styles including well-known favourites such as Oroton, Oakley, Moscot, Sass & Bide and more!
