Before booking an appointment you should see your local GP or optometrist for a referral. A referral is very helpful for our doctors to have some history and information about your current medical condition from your primary care provider. Also, you are only eligible for Medicare rebates with a valid referral. Referrals from a GP or optometrist are valid for 12 months, or 3 months from a medical specialist.
Our doctors prefer referrals to be updated every 12 months so that they are kept up to date with the condition of your eyes and also your general health.
