Michael Chu Optometrist is an independent practice that has been in operation for over 30 years. Our independence means we are not restricted by corporate rules and commercial concerns and are free to recommend quality optical treatments and products that best suit our patients' individual needs. We endeavour to give patients the highest standard in professional eyecare.
