"Committed to Eye Care with Confidence"



Your First Appointment

At Forest Eye Surgery, we strive to give you the utmost care and attention in a timely fashion. Since your first consultation may require extensive examination and tests, expect to stay up to 1.5 hours.

You will be seen by the orthoptist first, who will check your vision and eye pressure, and instil eye drops if necessary. You will then see your doctor, who may order more tests if required.
Please bring with you:

  1. Referral letter from the optometrist, general practitioner or medical specialist.
  2. Spectacles and spectacle prescription. If wearing contact lenses, please bring a contact lens case so that they can be removed prior to examination.
  3. A summary of your medical history, medications and allergies
  4. Medicare card
  5. Private health insurance card (e.g. HCF, Bupa, Medibank Private, NIB), Pension card or Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) card.
  6. Sunglasses to reduce glare after pupil dilation
