Melbourne Eyecare Clinic open for urgent care

Melbourne Eyecare Clinic is deemed an essential service and remains open. We are following Department of Health and government guidance regarding COVID-19 and limiting our appointments to urgent care only.

Urgent care conditions include:

  • eye injuries
  • recent onset change in vision
  • red or sore eyes
  • new onset floaters, shadows or bright flashes in your vision
  • broken pair of glasses (if you have no other functional pairs)

Routine non-urgent eye examinations are being deferred when safe to do so.

Examinations are by appointment only. Our optometrists are triaging and using clinical judgement to determine when examinations are necessary and when they can be safely postponed.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss an appointment, please call us on 03 9035 6666.
