What do I need to bring to my appointment?

To ensure we have all the necessary information it is important to bring along:

  • A valid referral (from a GP, optometrist or other specialist)
  • Medicare card
  • Private health fund card
  • Any government issued health benefit cards: e.g. Pensioner card, Health care card
  • Department of Veterans affair card (if applicable)
  • Current prescription glasses
  • A list of your current medications

If you are having dilating drops in, it is often helpful to bring along a pair of dark sunglasses to minimise the glare. Also with dilation we recommend that patients do not drive for a period of time after the appointment so if you are unable to wait for them to wear off we recommend that you bring someone who can drive you to/from the appointment.
