Low Vision optometry 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 check-up because we provide advice when glasses are no longer enough.

What you can expect from us

  • A full hour of personalised care from our skilled eye experts so we can take the time to explain your eye condition with care.
  • Expert advice, life hacks and strategies to maximise your remaining vision to help you continue doing the things you love.
  • Access to low-cost eyewear and 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 every day a little bit easier.
  • Potential referral into the broader support services offered by Vision Australia if desired.

Hear how Cheryl makes the most of her vision

Vision Australia client Cheryl, shares the big impact that small changes have made on her life with the right supports and services.

"I’ve got a little hand-held magnifier. It’s wonderful... Finally, I could read a menu, because sometimes every single word seems smaller than it should be. And if you’re at the supermarket, you want to make sure you’ve got the right product.”
