It’s important to regularly check up on the status of your eye condition, as there are strategies and products that can help you make the most of your remaining vision.

Our clinic specialises in optometry services for people who have permanent low vision, which cannot be corrected to normal levels by standard spectacles.

A referral is not required and your appointment will be covered by Medicare.

Vision Australia client Cheryl, shares the big impact that small changes have made on her life with the right supports and services.

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.”
