About Us

Shattky's have always been leaders in Eyecare.

VisionLink is Shattky's lead in the speciality of Behavioural Optometry.

We were the first Optometry practice in Hastings back in 1906, we have many 'firsts' to our credit, and we continue to be 'first' today.

We are the only practice to offer Behavioural Optometry services with a fully equipped Vision Therapy room and state of the art electronic therapies.

We are the only Irlen Clinic in Hawkes Bay providing Diagnostic and Treatment Services for Irlen Syndrome

We are the only Cellfield Therapists in Hawkes Bay for Reading disabilities.

We are the only practice to offer OrthoKeratology to control Myopia.

We're the specialists!


We do not put our patients under any sales pressure, preferring the gentle Kiwi way of doing business, the way we were brought up to behave.

If we can make a difference to your child's performance we will. If we cannot, then we will make recommendations on what to do next

Our relationship with the people of Hawkes Bay has always been one of dedicated service and affordable quality, perhaps you have tried us already?

If not, then do be influenced by the many panels of judges who have examined our business in fine detail over the last 15 years, during which we have won "Best Professional Business in Hastings", "Best Business Overall in Hastings" on 3 occasions, 2011 being the most recent! In 2009 we won the Chamber of Commerce "Best Retail Business" & "Best Small Business" for the whole region of Hawkes Bay!

It takes serious commitment to make that happen year after year.

VisionLink delivers affordable quality that Kiwis trust.
