Digital Retina Photography
A “Digital Retinal Image” is taken for ALL of our patients. The fee for these Photos is $15.00 and DOES NOT attract a Medicare Rebate but may be claimed from Private Health Insurance if allowable. This photograph provides a baseline record for monitoring any future changes or conditions and can be provided to your GP or specialist by request.

Medicare and Bulk Billing Changes
Due to Medicare changes from 01/01/15 the following condition applies:
Bulk Billing is done for all patients except when a new patient has been to another Optometrist within the previous 3 years. In this situation the full consultation will be charged and the patient then claims the rebate from Medicare. Subsequent consultations will be Bulk Billed as normal.

 I have read this condition and agree to this condition

OCT Scanning – Advanced Eye Health Testing
This scan is performed if required and is definitive in the diagnosis and monitoring of macular degeneration. It does not attract a Medicare Rebate and is paid privately. Some (but not all) Private Health Funds do provide cover for this scan. Your optometrist will discuss this with you if this scan is important for monitoring your eye health.

Pupil Dilation
As part of your Comprehensive Eye Examination we sometimes dilate the pupils of your eyes to thoroughly examine the retina. Some people cannot drive for a few hours after the dilation. If dilation is required do you prefer us to :

 Dilate my eyes today if necessary Reschedule another appointment if dilation needs to be done
