Most of our eye examinations are Bulk Billed by Medicare, if you do not have a medicare card, you will need to pay $71 for a thorough comprehensive eye exam which not only includes a current prescription for spectacles but also a detailed health check for Glaucoma, Macula Degeneration, Cataracts and many other important conditions of the eye which need to be checked regularly.

A. Yes, an appointment can be made by contacting our staff on (02) 4951 7566
Q. What is the best way to clean spectacle lenses?
A. Using a recommended optical spray and a micro-fibre cloth is the safest way to clean your optical lenses, NEVER use METHYLATED SPIRITS or ACETONE as this will damage the lenses causing some materials such as POLYCARBONATE lenses to crack and damage the lens completely. NEVER use hot or warm water on lenses especially lenses which have a Anti-reflective coating as this will cause the coating to craze and at times become bad enough to affect your vision through the lens.
Q. Do you do Behavioural optometry ?
A. Yes, Gabriel is a member of The Australian College of Behavioural Optometrists, and once the testing is complete a detailed report is sent to the school and teacher outling any specific and important information which was found in the behavioural examination.
