“Eyecare Kids’ recognition for its excellent contribution to the local areas our 6 locations look after in Sydney (Roselands, Bankstown, Chullora, Broadway, Kareela and Hillsdale)  reinforces the strength of the brand in connecting with parents, teachers and allied health professionals who care about children’s health and development,” she added.
