Whilst it’s important to find issues if they exist, we are often ‘diagnosing normal’ – confirming there are no significant issues with your eye health.
We don’t rush to fix problems that are more ‘theoretical’ in nature if they don’t bother you and aren’t significant. Simple solutions are our preferred starting point, and discussing all your options – including no intervention – is important.
Do I need an eye examination?
Even if your eyesight seems fine, it’s a good idea to have your eyes checked regularly because many eye conditions don’t have any symptoms at first. We can advise you on an appropriate test interval, generally every 1–5 years depending on your age, family history and general health.
Clear information & advice
We’re interested in understanding what your problems and concerns are and providing straightforward explanations and simple solutions.
What happens during an eye exam?
Our routine tests normally take about 30 minutes. Our services are tailored to your specific needs, and where required we will perform additional tests depending on your symptoms, family history, age, general health and our initial findings.
We collaborate with other healthcare professionals and can refer you to a GP, ophthalmologist or other optometrist if required.
Happy to see kids!
We see people of all ages. Most children don’t have vision or eye health problems and most often we are reassuringly ‘diagnosing normal’.
Of course if there is a problem it’s important to pick it up early. We make the examination for your child unintimidating, entertaining and effective.
Medicare & private health
Bulk billing is available for pensioners and health care card holders. Medicare rebates are available for eye examinations, and private health insurance rebates (for plans with “extras”) are also available.
