What happens when you come and see us?

Firstly, we discuss your vision and visual needs in detail, along with discussing your eyes’ history and any relevant general health and family history. Then we perform a thorough refraction and work with you on a final prescription that meets your needs. We also examine your eyes inside and out, measure intraocular pressures, and with our free digital retinography we can help you keep a permanent record of your eye health and function. Appointments are half-hourly, but you should allow a bit more time to have fun choosing your glasses. Please bring your Medicare number and a debit card to get an instant refund, and private health insurance card if you are buying glasses. We don’t usually need any old prescriptions, but bringing your existing glasses is a big help.

Comprehensive consultation $71: 80 percent of this fee is subsidised by Medicare for all permanent residents of Australia. Your Medicare rebate of up to $56.80 (depending on previous claims) is available immediately from Medicare online or via the Medicare Express app (gap of $14.20). For a simple refraction check, your gap is only $7.10. We bulk bill Health Care Card holders and children.

Digital retinal photography: We don’t charge extra for the digital fundus photography we do for you because we believe everyone should have it.

Visual field analysis (optional): We can test your peripheral vision at most of our locations with the Zeiss Humphrey Field Analyser (HFA), the accepted standard of care in diagnosis and management of glaucoma, various eye diseases and neurological conditions. Validated by more than 25 years of research, design and clinical experience, the HFA is the ‘gold standard’ in visual fields in terms of accuracy and reliability. It offers great co-management with ophthalmologists (eye specialists), so there’s no need for repeat tests, saving you time and money. Importantly, it is the only machine that can do the Esterman exam which tests your suitability to drive.

Contact lenses

Don’t want to wear glasses all the time? Our optometrists can fit and supply you with the most comfortable contact lenses. We source contact lenses that utilise latest material technology, in your prescription, and give you a wear schedule that suits you. Already have a prescription? We can order your contact lenses, ready to pick up in store or delivered directly to your home or workplace.

Contact Lens Consultation: Includes all eye exams required until both you and your optometrist are satisfied with the outcome and a small complimentary trial supply of contact lenses. We’ll ensure that the contact lenses fit as comfortably as possible, provide the best vision possible, and are a suitable fit for your eyes. We’ll also make sure that you have the skills to insert and remove your contact lenses. Your out-of-pocket cost will range from $36 to $99 depending on whether you’ve worn contact lenses before.

Existing prescriptions

If you have a current prescription from elsewhere, bring it in to us or email it to hallo@dresden.com.au. Alternatively, ask your optometrist to send it us and we’ll do the rest. Kein Problem.
