Eye Tests & Examination

Eye Exam

We Bulk Bill Eye Tests Through Medicare

At Specsavers, we believe everyone should have their eyes tested at least every two years.

From the age of 65, you are more likely to develop problems with your eyes. That’s why many people in this age group choose to have yearly eye tests.

Eye tests are bulk billed to Medicare so, if you are eligible*, there are no out of pocket expenses for you.

At Specsavers we are focused on caring for your eyes and giving you the best possible vision. We want you to see clearly and feel confident in your eyewear and tailor the experience to meet your specific visual needs, normally this will take between 40 and 60 minutes.
