To claim back some of your visit through Medicare you must have a referral from a doctor or optometrist.
What To Bring
A referral letter from doctor or optometrist
Any current spectacles or contact lenses
Any eyedrops you may be using
A list of your current medications if possible
A list of any information you have about your medical history
Medicare card, private health fund details (if applicable), and details of your usual GP and/or optometrist
What To Expect
Pupil dilating drops – it is likely that you will need to have eyedrops to dilate your pupils during your appointment. This may blur your vision and make you sensitive to light for a few hours. Therefore, it is best to not drive yourself home from your appointment.
Your visit may take an hour or more depending on your specific condition. For example, you may require additional diagnostic tests.
New patient form – if you are a new patient we will require you to complete a new patient form on arrival.
