Preparing for your appointment
There's some important things to consider when planning for your appointment.
You require a current referral from your local GP or optometrist to receive a Medicare rebate.
Waiting times may be up to 2 hours when visiting an eye specialist. Please allow adequate time for your appointment.
If we apply drops to dilate your eyes, you may need someone else to drive you home.
Payment on the day of the consultation is required. We accept Cash, Eftpos and Credit Card. You are eligible for some Medicare rebates with a valid referral.
Drops may be used to dilate your pupils during your consultation. These drops will blur your eyes, affecting your near vision. It may take approximately three hours for your vision to return to normal. We suggest you avoid driving during this time and recommend you have someone drive you home. Sunglasses will help to minimize the glare caused by dilated pupils.
