Referring a Patient
For Health Professionals
There are a number of ways to refer a patient to our clinic.
- Go Fax
- Printed letter
A GP or optometrist referral will usually last the patient 12 months unless you specify a longer period. This will enable the patient to receive Medicare rebates during that period.
Referrals should be updated every 12 months so your patient's ophthalmologist is kept up to date with the condition of your patient’s eyes and also their general health.
Why refer to Bayside Eyes?
We offer a welcoming practice that is worlds away from a clinical hospital environment and help patients feel as comfortable as possible during their visit.
Our team and consultant ophthalmologists are advocates for patients and ensure lifestyle needs are taken into consideration before prescribing a treatment plan.
Patients can expect a seamless experience, and a choice of capable, knowledgeable and trusted eye specialists.
