Eye Exams and Vision Tests – test your vision and eye health
A comprehensive eye test with our optometrist will assess how well your eyes are working, how healthy your eyes are and whether your eyesight needs correcting with glasses.
Whether or not you wear glasses, you should have an eye test with an optometrist at least every two years.
Eye exams will detect any signs of eye disease. This includes cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and many more.
At the end of your eye test, our optometrist will explain all the results so you understand your eyes better.
Our optometrist will also demonstrate how glasses or contact lenses can improve your vision.
We will only recommend glasses if you need them!
If you are noticing changes in your vision, perhaps you are having headaches that seem to be a result of concentrating for long periods, or maybe you have a family history of eye disease, make an appointment to come and see us in Nambour today!
How long does the eye test take?
The test takes between 20 – 30 minutes.
Before your test we will collect your contact details and Medicare number for bulk-billing purposes. If it is your first visit, we will ask you to answer a few questions about your eye history to help the optometrist assist you more thoroughly.
What happens during an eye test?
Our optometrist will measure your vision for far away and up close. This involves reading an eye chart. We also test how well your two eyes work together, and then decide what glasses if any, will make you see better or more comfortably.
The Optometrist will also check the health of your eyes looking for any signs of eye disease, including glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts.
How much will the eye test cost?
If you have a current Medicare card, the eye test is bulk-billed. This means there is no out of pocket expense for your eye test.
If you don’t have a Medicare card, please phone us and we will be able to advise you of the costs. Not all contact lens consultations are covered by Medicare. The optometrist will discuss fees relating to contact lenses during your initial eye exam (which is bulk-billed to Medicare).
Do I need to make an appointment for my eye test?
Yes, we allocate appointments for eye exams in 30 minute blocks, so that you have the dedicated attention of our optometrist to discuss your needs. Come and visit us in Nambour town centre, or phone or email Absolute Vision Optometrists to arrange a suitable time. If you have a repair, or general enquiry you do not need an appointment, just come on in to our practice at Nambour!
