The type of the examination undertaken will depend on your unique circumstances. We recommend a comprehensive eye exam every 1-2 years.
Under the current Medicare system a full eye examination is covered every 1-3 years,depending on your age and billing cycle. A full exam covers ocular health check and assessment of vision.Brief checks of the spectacle prescription are covered within this period.
Patients with pre-existing conditions who need regular assessments may be exempt from this rule.
In our practice we stretch our capability of health care delivery and bring to you tests which are not covered by the Medicare system. As a result the examination attracts a Medicare gap payment.
