Frequently asked questions
If you have anything else you want to ask, reach out to us.
How often do I need my eyes checked?
This can depend on your age and individual circumstances but our general rule of thumb is every 2 years for those under the age of 50 and every year after that.
What age should I have my childrens eyes tested?
While we see children of all ages, if you don't have any concerns about your child's vision we typically recommend having their vision assessed before they start school and every 2 years after that.
How long does an eye examination take?
Our eye examinations typically take anywhere from 40 minutes to 1 hour.
Do you check for Macular Degeneration?
Yes. We have invested in the latest technology to detect Macular Degeneration at the earliest stage.
How long will it take to get my glasses?
This largely depends on the complexity of the lenses being fitted to your spectacles. Simple, single vision spectacles are generally ready for you in about a week, whereas complex multifocals can take 2-3 weeks.
Do you bulk-bill?
The majority of our eye examinations are bulk-billed, however Medicare will not pay for certain diagnostic procedures we often need to undertake to adequately assess your eye health such as Retinal Imaging and OCT.
Can I claim my health fund?
Absolutely! We accept all major health funds and can process the claim for you when purchasing a new pair of spectacles or lenses.
Can you help my dry eye?
Instances of dry and irritable eyes are on the rise and we are equipped with the latest technology to assess and treat dry eye conditions such as IPL therapy.
What should I do if I experience flashes or floaters?
While experiencing flashes and floaters is a relatively common occurrence, they can be a sign of serious eye conditions and need to investigated. If you're experiencing these please give us a call.
