Comprehensive Eye Exam

It is recommended that you have regular eye examinations to monitor the health and vision of your eyes.
During the examination, the optometrist will carry out a full exam and if required, take images of your retina.
If there is a history, or we detect any macular degeneration or glaucoma, then we’ll recommend an eye scan.
 
We are a Multi Billing Practice. This means you will be billed for your consultation on the day and your Medicare refund via Easy Pay will be processed back into your account at the same time.
If you are due for a Full Consultation through Medicare the full amount should be refunded to you.

If specialised imaging is required during your visit, there will be an out of pocket expense, the Optometrist will discuss this with you as needed.


Retinal Imaging

Retinal Imaging enables our Optometrist to capture a digital image of the retina, blood vessels and optic nerve located at the back of your eyes.
This aids in the early detection and management of diseases that can affect both your eyes and overall health. This includes glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes and hypertension. With retinal imaging technology, the most subtle changes to the structures at the back of your eyes can be detected.Retinal imaging is not currently covered by Medicare. The additional fee will be discussed with you beforehand.

OCT

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a sophisticated scanning system that produces highly detailed images of the retina. It is often likened to an MRI or x-ray of the eye.
Our optometrist will be able to look at the detailed images of the retina (the inner most layer of the interior eye), enabling them to accurately detect, monitor and control changes to the retina. This procedure is currently the only one that shows in-depth images of the eyes internal structures. Other procedures only show the surface of these structures.


Visual Field:

The visual field test is a subjective measure of central and peripheral vision, or “side vision,” and is used by your optometrist to diagnose, determine the severity of, and monitor changes to your vision. The most common visual field test uses a light spot that is repeatedly presented in different areas of your peripheral vision.














Contact Lens Fitting Centre

We offer a personalised contact lens fitting consultation where the Optometrist will test your vision and recommend the most suitable contact lenses for you.
We will teach you how to correctly insert and remove your contact lenses, and how to take care of your contact lenses during a fitment appointment. We recommend that you have a contact lens review at 6 months initially, and then annually to review your lenses and lifestyle needs.





Orthokeratology

We also treat Orthokeratology patients, working with them to eliminate their nearsightedness. Orthokeratology is a non-surgical treatment that uses precise, specially shaped contact lenses to temporarily reshape the cornea in order to eliminate nearsightedness or myopia so that you can see better at distance without wearing eyeglasses or regular contact lenses throughout the day.
