Eye Exam

Kevin Hackett Optometrist - Our Technolgy

A comprehensive eye consultation includes assessing all parts of your vision and eye health, not just determining your prescription for glasses or contact lenses; we can detect, diagnose, treat and manage conditions that affect your eyesight. Our full eye health examination includes:

  • Discussing any symptoms you may have been experiencing, your medical history, lifestyle and any concerns you may have.
  • Internal eye examination
  • External eye examination
  • A test of how clearly you see
  • How well your eyes work together
  • Discussion of results as well as recommendations of any treatments, prescriptions or required follow ups.

At the conclusion of your eye examination, we’ll create a report with Kevin’s findings including his recommendations and an internal health report. We will provide you with a copy to take home as well as forwarding a copy to your GP.

If a problem is detected, you may be recommended glasses, contact lenses, eye exercises, or eye drops. If we find that an Ophthalmologist consultation is required, we will provide a referral and organise an appropriate appointment.

Should you require glasses or contact lenses, we will help you make the right decision based on your needs, lifestyle, personality and budget. All lens fitting is performed onsite by Carol, our resident lab technician, meaning that you’ll have your premium quality tailor-made spectacles delivered in no time at all.

A comprehensive eye consultation provides the full assurance of good vision and eye health that a quick vision check or a school vision screening cannot. You do not need a referral to book an eye exam.

What to bring to your appointment:

  • Any spectacles or prescription sunglasses you are currently using
  • If you wear contact lenses, please bring information such as the brand of lens and your prescription, or even bringing in the contact lens box would be helpful.
  • List of current medications
  • Pension, Healthcare or DVA card
  • Medicare card
  • Private health fund card
  • Doctor's Referral Form or Care Plan (if applicable)
  • Community nurse or other health professional referrals (if applicable)
