Our Services

At Optika Optometrist, we understand the importance of maintaining healthy vision. That’s why we invest in the latest technology to produce detailed images of your eyes and detect a wide range of eye conditions. Our state-of-the-art technology includes advanced retinal imaging, OCT imaging scans, visual field perimetry tests, slip-lamp biomicroscopy, and autorefractor/phoroptor.

Our advanced retinal imaging allows us to detect and diagnose conditions such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. OCT imaging scans provide detailed images of the retina, allowing for early detection of glaucoma and other eye diseases. The visual field perimetry test helps us detect vision loss caused by conditions such as glaucoma and brain tumors. Slip-lamp biomicroscopy allows us to examine the front of the eye and detect conditions such as cataracts and dry eye. And autorefractor/phoroptor helps us to precise the eyeglasses prescription.

At Optika Optometrist, we are committed to providing you with the best eye care possible. Trust us to use the latest technology to detect and diagnose eye conditions, and to create a personalized treatment plan that’s right for you.

Frequently asked questions

Can I claim my consultation fee on Medicare?

The amount of the rebate depends on how long it has been since your last eye examination but is typically around $35-70. To thoroughly assess the health of your eyes we usually carry out additional tests that are not claimable on Medicare.

Can you process my private health fund claims at my appointment using HICAPS?

Yes, we can. Please bring your private health fund membership card and we can process any claims on the spot using our electronic HICAPS system.

How long will my appointment take?

If you are new to Optika Optometrist, or if you have not been seen for over 12 months, your appointment will take approximately 30-60 minutes. Follow-up appointments are generally shorter.

How often should I have my eyes examined?

Your eyes should be examined by an experienced Optometrist at least once every 2 years. If you are a contact lens wearer, then your eyes should be examined every 12 months to ensure that the lenses are still fitting correctly and that they are providing you with the best vision possible

What do I have to bring to my appointment?

Please bring to your appointment any glasses, sunglasses or contact lenses that you wear. If you wear contact lenses, please bring the name of your contact lens care system. Please also bring a list of any medications you are taking and ask your family about any history of eye disease or health conditions that may affect the eyes.

Is there parking available?

Although street parking is an option, the most convenient parking can be found at the Cabra-vale Diggers Club or the Dutton Lane car park.
