Caring for your eyes… “Check Yearly, See Clearly”


Your eyes can reveal many things about your general health. An eye exam can detect early signs of glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. The exam may also reveal problems caused by diabetes and high blood pressure, in addition to common vision problems such as; short sight, long sight, astigmatism and reading difficulties.

These problems may go undetected in the early stages, but without early treatment, they can result in severe eye damage and irreversible loss of vision.

Attending regular eye tests at Optical World is one of the best things you can do for your eyesight and for your general health.

At Optical World Elsternwick and Optical World Ashburton, our fully qualified optometrists provide comprehensive eye examinations to help reduce those risks and to correct your vision. Optical World has the latest high-tech instruments, including computerised visual field analysers to help detect any nerve damage and retinal cameras for better recording and monitoring of eye conditions.

The Eye Tests at Optical World are still BULK BILLED, (so there is no cost to you).



Our routine eye examinations take approximately 30 minutes. We screen for:

  • Eye health
  • Clarity of vision
  • Glaucoma
  • Cataracts
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Diabetic Retinopathy


In addition to the latest in optical equipment, we also provide…

  • Optical Coherence Tomography (also known as OCT) – a non-invasive imaging test that allows the optometrist to see deep below the layers of the retina, very much like an ultrasound.
  • Retinal Camera
  • Visual Field Analyser
  • Tonometry
  • Auto Refractor

Because your eyes can change with time, it is advisable to have your eyes tested annually.

Keep in mind that good vision doesn’t necessarily mean healthy eyes.
