    ​​​​

  • A list of all your current medications, including any vitamins and supplements
     

  • All your current glasses
     

  • Your referral letter and any relevant tests, pathology, radiology results from either your Optometrist, General Practitioner or other Medical Officer

What to expect

  1. When you arrive for your appointment, please check in at reception, our friendly staff will check your details and make sure you have a valid referral. If you are a new patient, we will provide you with an information form to fill in for our records

  2. You will first been seen by either our Registered Nurse or one of our Clinical Optometrists for a preliminary vision assessment, which may include tests and scans on your eyes. You may also have some eye drops instilled to numb and dilate your eyes so we can check your eye pressure and enlarge your pupil for a more comprehensive evaluation.
     

  3. Once your initial assessments, scans and tests have been completed and your pupils have dilated (if you had drops instilled), the Doctor will see you and complete his own assessment
