Know your vision clinic | Vision Australia. Blindness and low vision services

Why Vision Australia?

Our appointments are longer so we can go a step further than a regular optometry or vision specialist appointment. We are here to provide expert assistance, and advice when glasses are no longer enough.

What you can expect in your two-hour appointment:

  • Personalised care from our skilled eye experts so we can take the time to explain your eye condition with care.
  • Expert advice, and simple strategies to start the journey towards maximising your remaining vision to help you to continue to do the things you love.
  • Advice on and access to our extensive range of low vision devices and optical aids priced to suit all budgets.
  • Live demonstrations with assistive technology so, all clients walk out with a device that will immediately help make the everyday that little bit easier. (Not available on telehealth consultations)
  • Referral into the broader support services offered by Vision Australia to suit your personal needs and help you achieve your personal goals.
