Eyescan is the only practice in Australia that provides Ophthalmology, Optometry, and Optical Dispensing expertise and services in one location. We offer a wide array of services to make it as easy as possible for our valued clients.

 

Emergency Consult

If you feel you have an eye emergency, please call us on (03) 9826 0740 so we can schedule you appropriately or advise you on what steps to take. If one of our doctors is not immediately available to assist or direct you.

What symptoms do I need to be concerned about?

  • Red eyes

  • Sore eyes

  • Injured eyes (eg scratch, metal or other foreign body)

  • Sudden vision loss or distorted vision

  • Double vision

  • New floaters or spots in your vision

  • Flashing or flickering lights in your peripheral vision

Do you have something stuck or lodged in your eye?

If you have anything trapped in your eye, you need to have it seen to immediately. If you have a foreign body in your eye our optometrists can anaesthetise the area and expertly remove the object.

 

General Eye Exam

This standard eye test is bulk billable for eligible Medicare card holders. It involves vision assessments at various distances to assist in optimising vision for your day-to-day activities using glasses, contacts or sunglasses. Additionally, your optometrist will carry out a full ocular health check which will allow us to provide you with professional advice on maintaining good eye health.  

 

VicRoads Assessment

Good vision is essential for safe driving so if you notice any changes to your vision, it’s important to arrange an eye test to ensure any issues are addressed early. If you have previously been diagnosed with an eye condition or  medical condition, you may be required by VicRoads to visit your  optometrist to complete a VicRoads Eyesight Report.

 

Contact Lens Fitting

Contact Lenses are an excellent alternative to wearing your glasses everyday. Whether you intend to wear them full time, or just for the odd occasion, our professional optometrist will help you choose a contact lens system perfectly suited to your visual and lifestyle needs. A contact lens consultation includes a full health check plus a set of custom trial contact lenses, a fitting and a teach. This consult covers all re-fit and teaching requires for a 12 month period.

 

Glaucoma Assessment and Eye Care

Over 200,000 Australians have glaucoma, half of these cases remain undiagnosed. Known as the "thief of sight", glaucoma leads to gradual and painless peripheral vision loss and progresses if left untreated. Once diagnosed, it can most often be treated successfully with eye drops. Glaucoma can be detected by a combination of checks carried out by your optometrist with a pressure check, an optic nerve assessment including a retinal photo, an OCT (optical coherence tomography) scan and a visual field examination

 

Diabetic Eye Exam and Eye Care

Diabetes is the fastest-growing chronic disease among Australians. Many diabetic patients may develop diabetic retinopathy, a main cause of blindness in the working-aged population. A full diabetic eye exam every 12 months is an important part of every diabetes management plan. Eyescan is fully equipped with the devices and equipment required to carry out this important service. 

 

Macula Health Check and Eye Care

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a degenerative eye disease that causes progressive loss of central vision. AMD is the leading cause of blindness and severe vision loss for people over 40 in Australia. 1 in 7 people over the age of 50 have some signs of AMD.

 

Cataract Assessment

The term cataract is used to describe any opacity in the lens of the eye. Cataracts develop as a normal part of ageing and cataract surgery is one of the most common, safe and successful procedures performed in the Western world. At Eyescan, we are lucky to work with Dr Harry Unger, a specialist in the field of cataract surgery. Please find below a brochure written by Dr Unger outlining the condition and the procedure of cataract surgery. Our experienced optometrist is always available to help decide if cataract surgery is right for you.
