Black Forest Optical is dedicated to helping our community with all of their optometry needs.
Because our optometrists are registered, university-trained health professionals, they are qualified to examine the eyes, detect, diagnose and manage vision problems, and assess eye health.
What to expect.
First of all, during an eye test the optometrist will use special equipment to assess your visual acuity (how well and clearly you see), and the general health of your eyes (to detect signs or symptoms of eye disease for example).
Our optometrists can also prescribe and fit glasses or contact lenses. They can also advise you on and manage many aspects of your eye health as well as prescribe topical eye medications for problems such as allergies, infections or glaucoma.
You do not need a referral to see an optometrist.
If needed, optometrists can refer you to an ophthalmologist (specialist eye doctor) for further tests, treatment or surgery.
A Medicare rebate is available for most optometry services.
