Information for General Practitioners

Eye examinations are available to the general public as well as the University community. Consultations are conducted by final year students fully supervised by experienced practicing optometrists who are staff of the University of Melbourne.  

The clinic welcomes referrals for contact lens, low vision and occupational eye care as well as general optometric examination. Supervising optometrists hold therapeutic endorsements and as part of the therapeutic teaching program for current optometric students the clinic is able to prescribe medications available to therapeutically endorsed optometrists.

The Clinic offers a range of diagnostic equipment not usually accessible in mainstream optometry practice.
