Even if you have no eye diseases or risk factors, eye examinations with a registered eye care practitioner are recommended every two years here in Australia^, and every year if you’re over the age of 65. If you’re already experiencing any disturbances or changes in your vision, then this test should be conducted urgently.

Attending an eye test, even if you don’t have symptoms, means that any changes to your eyes, your vision, and early signs of disease or degeneration can be detected, and the right steps taken to best support your eyes in maintaining healthy vision for life. 

Your eye health can be affected over time by many different factors and health conditions, including diabetes, UV exposure, viruses, ageing, and more. There are also many eye conditions that don't have any noticeable symptoms until they are far-progressed.

Our knowledgeable and experienced optometry team use a gentle approach combined with innovative medical technology to assess the overall health of your eyes, your vision, and to identify any problems or risk factors. Our clinics have a wide range of examination techniques, including Digital Retinal Photography and Optical Coherence Tomography scans, to help identify diseases and conditions such as Glaucoma, Retinal Detachment, Cataracts, Macular Degeneration, and complications from diseases including diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol. 

We understand how unnerving it can feel to experience a disturbance or problem with your eyes and vision, so we ensure to take the time and care to explain our findings carefully, answer all of your questions, and leave you feeling confident about the best approach to treatment and the outcomes you can expect.
