As an optometrist, I detect, diagnose, treat and manage eye health and vision conditions that affect your eyesight. I can also in some instances identify general health conditions that are first detected via an eye exam. I also provide referrals to eye surgeons (ophthalmologists) for more complex eye conditions.

What happens in an eye exam

As an optometrist I examine all parts of your vision and eye health. A full eye health examination includes:

  • A thorough case history
  • Internal eye examination
  • External eye examination
  • A test of how clearly you see
  • How well your eyes work together as a team

What if I find a vision problem?

If I detect a problem, I may recommend glasses, contact lenses, eye exercises, prescription eye drops or even referral for eye surgery.

Many serious eye conditions don't have obvious symptoms. Some eye diseases only show symptoms when the condition is advanced and difficult, or even impossible, to treat.

A comprehensive eye exam provides the full assurance of good vision and eye health that a quick vision check or a school vision screening cannot. You do not need a referral to book an eye exam and the examination is usually partially rebatable to Medicare.
