Comprehensive Eye Examinations

An examination consists of testing your eyes for the need of glasses or contact lenses, checking for disease or disorders, and taking the time to discuss the findings with you. It includes an eye pressure check, assessment of the eye for cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration, and also includes high resolution retinal photographs.

We have the latest technology including OCT scanning (Optical Coherence Tomography for a 3D assessment of the eye), Corneal Topography (mapping the curve of the front of the eye the cornea), and Computerised Visual Field Examinations.

We offer reduced examination fees for students, gold card holders, and children aged 12 and under.

Children’s Examinations

We highly recommend any child over the age of 18 months has a regular eye exam to ensure the eye and visual development is normal. We will examine children of all ages, although children younger than five years old often require an appointment with an ophthalmologist. However if you have a prescription from your ophthalmologist we are more than happy to make up the glasses for you.

Enable Spectacle Subsidy

If you have a current Community Services Card you will automatically qualify for the Enable Spectacle Subsidy that is available once per year until the child is 16 years old. The subsidy will cover the cost of the eye examination and in most cases two pairs of glasses as well. Please ask our any of our team for further information.

Tips for Eye Health

Eating omega3’s (oily fish and flaxseed), green leafy vegetables, and colourful fruits and vegetables all are beneficial to your eye health. Also, protecting your eyes against UV light by using tinted glasses outside or UV protected contact lenses will reduce the risk of eye disease.
