We welcome you to our practice. We strive to provide individualised care to each patient, and provide informative feedback regarding your eye health condition and treatment recommendations.

What to Bring to your Consultation

  1. Glasses and glasses or contact lens prescription (if available)
  2. Referral letter (from your GP, optometrist or other specialist)
  3. Medicare card [DVA card or pension card if applicable]
  4. List of medications and allergies

What to Expect at your Visit

You may need to have your pupils dilated for a comprehensive eye examination to check the retinal peripheries. You should not drive  for a few hours after pupil dilation if this is deemed necessary. Please arrange for someone to accompany you for your visit, or come by public transport or taxi. A pair of sunglasses is a good idea, especially on a sunny day.

Free, undercover basement patient parking is available for your appointment – enter the building carpark from the Sam Sing Street entrance, and press 01 OK on the intercom. Park in designated visitor Eye and Retina Specialists spaces. Take the lift to our office on level 1. Click on the “Location” link for further information.

You will first be seen by an orthoptist (ophthalmic assistant), who will ask about your medical and ophthalmic history. Further tests and investigations will be performed as needed.  The appointment may take 1-2 hours, especially if several tests are required. We make every effort to keep to schedule.

Payment

Payment is required in full on the day of your appointment. We prefer this to be done via VISA, Mastercard or EFPTOS. Cash is accepted. There is a reduced pensioner rate where applicable. Our staff will provide further information regarding costs, and informed financial consent will be obtained if a surgical procedure is required. Cancellation Policy:  In the interest of fairness to all patients, please contact our office in advance if you cannot attend your appointment or need to reschedule.
