Get the services you want in a convenient and safe way
Whether you are new to Vision Australia or an existing client, telehealth is a safe and easy way for you to receive the services you want.
Telehealth uses technology to conduct your appointments with a Vision Australia service provider. You can choose a combination of face to face appointments and telehealth to help you achieve your goals.
All of my appointments have been via telehealth – occupational therapy, counselling and mobility. Without telehealth, I wouldn’t have got my white cane and all the appliances for my house that I needed so much. It’s been very beneficial for me to have this connection.' Sandra, Vision Australia client
