Your eyesight is precious, therefore regardless of your age regular examinations are a vital part in managing the health of your eyes.
Our standard eye examinations take about 30 minutes.
In your eye examination your optometrist will assess your eyes for any signs of ocular disease.
Ocular health problems often can have no symptoms early on, hence making a regular eye examination very important for early detection.
Minor eye disorders are common.
Over half the Australian population uses some form of vision correction, and nearly everyone will require some vision correction at some time during their life.

Regular eyes examinations are bulk billed for Medicare cardholders where eligible.
If you are a member of a health fund with an optical rebate you could save on frames, lenses and contact lenses. And with HICAPS instant rebates available in-store you can access your extras benefits on the spot.
Orthokeratology (ortho-K, corneal refractive therapy) is a non-surgical alternative to laser surgery for vision correction.
It involves the prescribed use of hard contact lenses (to be worn at night only) to remould the top surface of the cornea to correct myopic (short-sighted) and astigmatic (irregular surface) errors that would otherwise require glasses.
