bulk billed eye test


At your eye examination your eyesight and general eye health will be checked. We will ask you questions to understand your eye care requirements and your vision related lifestyle needs. During your eye examination we will test your vision, focussing ability and your eye coordination. If optical correction is required we will discuss the best options for you, whether it be prescription glasses, sunglasses or contact lenses. Spectacle prescriptions will be trialled during your consultation so you will see what you vision will be like once you get your glasses.

We will also check your eye health using the latest digital technology and can diagnose any eye health issues. We have excellent relationships with some of Sydney’s leading ophthalmologists and sub specialty ophthalmologists so if referral is required we can provide on the spot referrals. As we age and our lifestyle changes it is important to monitor our eyesight. An eye test is recommended every 2 years and any time if you have concerns, or notice that your vision changes. For contact lens wearers and those over the age of 65, we would like to see you every year to maintain your eye care.

Colour vision examination

At a child’s first eye examination assessing colour vision. Altered colour vision affects approximately 8% of males and 0.5% of females. Interestingly, it can often go undiagnosed throughout childhood.

Altered colour vision can manifest as difficulties in distinguishing shades of brown, green, and red. These challenges can have an impact on various aspects of life, including academic performance and career choices. That’s why we recommend early assessment of children for altered colour vision. By identifying and addressing any issues at an early stage, we can help plan for future educational support and ensure appropriate career choices are made.
