Optometry Australia recommends regular eye tests to detect problems before they become too hard to manage. Children can have their first eye test at age 3 or earlier if there appears to be a problem. Regular tests every 2 or 3 years throughout your life is the safest way to keep seeing your best. Over 50% of your brain is used for processing visual information - it is the most dominant and important of our senses. It makes sense to look after it.
Early treatment of eye problems can save sight and prevent blindness.
We send reminder SMS or letters when you are due for your next eye test - but you dont have to wait - Book in Now if you believe you have a problem. Initial Consultation Cost. $85 (Concession $75), Next day electronic medicare rebate is $28-$56 depending on various factors.
Eye problems dont always have symptoms.
If you can see clearly, there still may be something wrong with your eyes.
