The Melbourne Eyecare Clinic is committed to bringing a wide range of optometry services to UoM staff and students, and the general public.
The clinic is also a space of learning where consultations are led by final year UoM Optometry students under the supervision of experienced optometrists. Prescriptions may be provided by therapeutically qualified optometrist as needed.
For those looking to pick up a new pair of glasses, the MEC carries a range of both budget and designer frames for your perusal, in addition to sunglasses and contact lenses.
As with medical checkups, routine optometric examinations can be a great way to catch-up on your eye health, to review your prescription, and allow you to raise other concerns with experienced optometrists. Routine screens for refractive errors, eye focusing and coordination disorders, digital eye strain, and diseases such as cataract and glaucoma are included in optometric examinations.
Assessments for short-sightedness can be provided for those wondering if they need glasses or contact lenses, or clients looking for a routine checkup. Evidence-based and effective treatment options will be discussed.
Contact Lens Consultation
Consultations by experienced optometrists, using state of the art instrumentations for those looking into contact lenses.
Contact lenses can help correct myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia. Specialty contact lenses may also be used for specific conditions.
NOTE: Clients are requested to bring their current spectacles (and prescriptions), contact lenses (and prescriptions, contact lens case, and any contact lens products that you may be using), and a list of any known allergies, current medications and eyedrops if possible.
