Our optometrists believe that a good eye exam is about making sure your eyes are healthy, your sight is clear and your vision comfortable.
This means our Moree practice offers a comprehensive set of eyecare services and the latest technology in detecting eye diseases.
Keeping Eyes Healthy
- Get your eyes tested regularly - generally between every 12 months and 3 years is appropriate. Our optometrist can help you determine how frequently is right for you.
- Don't ignore signs and symptoms - if you experience new pain, redness, flashing lights, new floating things in the eyes or loss of vision, don't ignore the signs. Contact our practice so our optometrist can help you determine the cause and prevent potential loss of sight.
- Protect your eyes from the sun - with sunglasses that meet the Australian Standards for UV protection.
- Protect your eyes at work or in the shed - safety eye wear for both home and the workplace is invaluable.
- Don't Smoke - it's bad for your eyes too and significantly increases the risk of macula degeneration.
- Eat a nutritious diet.
- Know your family eye history.
- Take care of your contact lenses.
Eating For Good Eye Health
Regularly eating these foods can help lead to good eye health:
- Leafy greens like spinach and kale
- Brightly coloured fruit like oranges and vegetables like carrots
- Nuts, eggs and beans
- Salmon, Tuna and other oily fish
These foods contain the nutrients omega 3, fatty acids, Luton, zinc and vitamins C + E.
Sore, Red, Dry, Tired Or Watery Eyes
Dry eye syndrome is a lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture in the eye leaving the cornea (the main lens of the eye) with an inadequate tear film.
Keratoconus is a condition where the cornea changes from its normal spherical dome shape, to develop a protruding cone shape. This causes distorted vision. Keratoconus affects around 1 in 1000 Australians.
A cataract is an opacity or cloudiness that forms in the lens of the eye, causing vision to blur at both distance and near.
Glaucoma is a painless eye condition which causes irreversible damage to the nerve of the eye.
Macular degeneration is a degenerative retinal disease, which causes painless distortion or loss central vision.
Diabetic Eye Disease
Diabetic retinopathy is a term used to describe long-term damage to the retina and blood vessels within the eye associated with diabetes. Diabetic retinopathy can cause unwanted bleeding, inflammation and exudate (discharge) within the retina.
Presbyopia - Loss Of Near Vision
Presbyopia is a loss of flexibility of the lens in the eye which allows us to change from looking at near objects to far objects and back again.
Presbyopia occurs to people in their 40s and results in a loss of ease and clarity of seeing things clearly up close.

Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT)
OCT creates a topographical map of the tissues below the surface of the retina, allowing us to detect early changes to the nerves or blood vessels. This technology assists with detecting conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration before vision loss has occurred, allowing early access to treatment if required.
Digital Retinal Imaging (DRI)
Digital retinal imaging allows your practitioner to compare images of inside your eyes from one visit to the next. This technology assists with early detection of progression or change in the health of your eyes.
Through digital retinal imaging, health concerns, such as increased blood pressure or increased cholesterol levels can be found or monitored.
Medmont Visual Field Screening
Visual field screening allows us to map the sensitivity of the nerves inside your eyes. Visual field screening is used in monitoring of conditions such as glaucoma or post-stroke recovery.
A binocular driving visual field screening is a commonly requested test from the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS).
We use the Australian Medmont Visual Field screening technology.
Pachymetry uses a small ultrasound to measure the thickness of the cornea.
We have known for a long time that pressure is a factor in early detection of glaucoma. Current research has found that the thickness of the corneas is also an important factor in early detection and diagnosis of glaucoma. Therefore Pachymetry is included in our comprehensive eye examinations.
