Not every optometrist does what we do. We think your eyes deserve the best care and so we offer a comprehensive examination of your vision and eye health. The examination of your vision and eyes will be longer than you have experienced before and can take up to an hour.
Our standards of clinical excellence and state-of-the-art technology ensure the highest standard of eye care.
The examination includes using drops that will dilate your pupils to allow a detailed assessment of your eye health. Pupil dilation can make you glare sensitive for up to 2 hours, so it’s best to bring sunglasses for use after the examination. Pupil dilation may also cause blurred vision up close for up to 1 hour. These effects are a temporary inconvenience, but pupil dilation allows us to examine your eyes in greater detail and check for any eye diseases as well as any ocular complications from conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
Your examination may include:
- Digital imaging of the back of your eye
- A scan of your nerves and retina
- An assessment of the front of your eye
- A glaucoma check
- A check for macular degeneration
- Measurements of the shape and length of the eye
- A review of the movement and function of your eye.
- A detailed assessment for spectacles or contact lenses
We will assess your vision and discuss our recommendations and options available to you. These may range from spectacles to contact lenses depending on your visual requirements, occupation, and lifestyle.
Please ask any questions at any time.
Diagnostic tests provide us with detailed measurements about the structure of your eye and improves the accuracy of our diagnosis. This may include a scan of the retina, measuring the shape of the front of the eye and length of the eye. You will be advised which tests are recommended.
There are no Medicare or Private Health Extras rebates for diagnostic testing.
