Our Services

 

We offer a comprehensive range of eyecare including full eye examinations. We allow 45 minutes for these so we can ensure all the appropriate tests are done. We have 3 fully equipped testing rooms and a qualified dispenser to provide advice on lens and frame options, adjustments and fittings.

We also have a digital retinal camera so we can photograph the back of your eye if necessary as well as an automated visual fields screener. Our latest acquisition is an OCT machine which can scan all 10 layers of a retina or the nerve fibres of the optic nerve. This is used in glaucoma management and for retinal conditions like ARM and Macula holes. We also have a corneal topographer to analyse accurately the shape of the front of the eye- essentially for our new ortho-k fitting service. We have an onsite lab with the latest in edging technology and online ordering and can offer a 1 hour service for reglazes as well as a full repairs facility.

We offer drivers screening, contact lens fitting and checks, laser surgery assessments and glaucoma checks.

There is a government subsidy available for children under 16 if the family has a community services card or the child has a high health user card which totals $287.50 per annum. You just need to bring in your card and we can help with the paperwork.

At the other end of the scale, if you have a super gold card you can get a discount off the cost of your new frames. We have options to suit all budgets, package deals using quality frames, and designer eyewear.

We have a large contact lens base and can access the subsidy available for some wearers with certain eye conditions such as keratoconus.

Children’s vision & visual tracking

Children’s eyes are still developing and even though they may see clearly there can still be problems with the ways the eyes work together which can make learning to read harder and more tiring.

Symptoms can include – holding reading material closer than normal, shutting one eye while reading, rubbing eyes, losing place while reading or re reading lines, tilt or turning their head performing below their potential. If the eye tests shows your child is having difficulty with eye movements, focusing and tracking we have a proven program of exercises to help with these areas.

If your child is struggling with the process of learning to read a eye test should be done to rule out any problems. The Enable subsidy is available for children up to 16 years old. The child or parent must hold a current Community Services card or High Health User card.
