Black Gates Meek and Dong Optometrists

Lower Hutt

Renowned for our high level of expertise, Black Gates Meek & Dong have been providing quality eye care since 1937.

Our familiar location on the corner of High Street and Andrews Ave in Lower Hutt provides easy access for people of limited mobility. We are only a short drive from Wellington and Upper Hutt and close to plenty of street parking.

We place great emphasis on professional service and have invested in several items of specialised equipment. This means we can provide you with state-of-the-art health screening. Regular attendance at conferences and educational meetings ensures our Optometrists and Opticians are kept up to date with all the latest developments in vision care.

When you visit us you are not only provided with the largest frame selection in the Hutt Valley. But also the expertise and experience of our dedicated team of Dispensing Opticians and optical assistants. They are here to advise you on the most appropriate choice of frame style and lens design. You’ll also experience the support of a fully equipped workshop which is able to repair most frame types. We also provide cleaning and maintenance services of all types of contact lenses – including on-site rigid lens polishing.


Our Frame Selection is one of the largest in the Wellington region. We get new stock in daily. So let our friendly qualified staff assist you in finding a frame that best complements you.

Our frames have a two year warranty against manufacturing faults.

The Vision Examination is the first step in achieving clear and comfortable vision. Assessing visual needs is as important as  your eyesight. Our regular appointments are 40 minutes long to allow for thorough and unhurried examinations. We are comfortable testing children of all ages.

Contact Lens Fitting is a subspecialty of our optometric team. We routinely fit and maintain all types of contact lenses. Including rigid lenses for Keratoconus and abnormal corneas. We are contracted service providers of subsidised contact lens fitting  to the Capital Coast and Lower Hutt DHBs.

Diabetic Retinal Screening. We are a contracted service provider to Capital Coast Health for photoscreening examinations. We are proud of pioneering this award winning program. Ask your doctor to refer you should you need to access this service.

Eye Pathology (including Sore or Red Eyes). We are able to examine your eyes and prescribe eye-drops when your eyes are sore or red. we’ll refer you to specialist care when this is appropriate. Glaucoma and other eye diseases are screened for during our comprehensive routine examinations. But specific screening appointments can be arranged. If you are concerned  about sudden changes in your vision (including Flashes or Floaters) please mention this when you make an appointment.

All our optometrists are members of the New Zealand Association of Optometrists (NZAO). Our optometrists are also members of the Cornea and Contact Lens Society of New Zealand (CCLS).



At Level 2 we are open, but with some now all-too-familiar changes. We need to be careful about some things.

see you soon!
