What to expect when you visit

When you come to East St Kilda Eye Clinic for an appointment or for treatment, you’ll first be seen by an orthoptist, who will take your medical history and administer any tests. If you’ve been given dilating drops, then these will be allowed to take effect as you wait outside the doctor’s office, which can take up to half an hour.

After this, you’ll then see the doctor, who will complete the examination and discuss the results and any further management with you. The doctor will then send a report about this to your referring practitioner.

At East St Kilda Eye Clinic, we always uphold patient confidentiality and will never share your details with a third party without your written consent.
