Low Vision Optometry clinic now open

Staying on top of your eye health is important.

An annual check-up ensures any changes are identified and addressed as early as possible.

So make the most of your remaining vision by visiting our low vision optometrist.

We specialise in services for people who have permanent low vision, which cannot be corrected to normal levels by standard spectacles.

Our new clinic offers a range of unique services including:

  • An extensive low vision assessment with our optometrist.
  • Evaluation of the effectiveness of your current lenses, prescribing new glasses if necessary.
  • Access and education on the latest technology in specialised low vision optical aids, that if right for you, can be paired with glasses to help you to get the most out of your remaining vision.

The new clinic is specially designed to support older Australians manage significant eye conditions, such as macular degeneration, glaucoma and cataracts.

"I’ve got a little hand-held magnifier. It’s wonderful... Finally, I could read a menu, because sometimes every single word seems smaller than it should be. And if you’re at the supermarket, you want to make sure you’ve got the right product.”
