COVID-19 Update; Effective 25/03/2020. Click here for more details.

Yes! We are open!

The last few months have been trying for most businesses impacted by COVID-19. Throughout April, we have scaled down our clinic to only cater to patients requiring urgent attention and emergencies. During these uncertain times, it had changed the way we practise and how we interact with our patients in our clinic. Earlier this week, the ACT government has announced the elimination of active cases of COVID-19 within its territory, along with NSW easing their travel restrictions.

Telehealth Consultations at Capital Eye

With most of the services closed amid the COVID-19 crisis, we have expanded our optometry
services in Canberra to include telehealth consultations.

This allows you to continue to maintain your eye health, ask any questions and connect to our
optometrist seek urgent advice and attention.

During these uncertain times, we have decided to reduce our face-to-face consultations to a
minimum to protect our staff and our patients. We are a strictly by-appointment practice now
include collections of glasses, contact lenses, adjustments and repairs.

Our 30-min telehealth service allows you to discuss your concerns regarding your eye health and
vision. During the consultation, if it is deemed a face-to-face consultation is necessary, we will
have the practice prepared for your arrival within the hour according to our COVID-19 sanitation
and operation guidelines.

You can make a telehealth optometry appointment online by selecting the appropriate
consultation type. Any costs associated with the telehealth consultation will be discussed before
your appointment. No referral is necessary to utilise this service.

NEW Dry Eye Treatment

Eye-Light IPL

As a part of our commitment to your eye health in our community in Canberra, we’ve done some major upgrade to our equipment, giving you access to our latest diagnostic and treatment technologies for dry eyes.

Around 85% of dry eyes are caused by Meibomian Glands Dysfunction. These glands produce the oily layer of the tear film to improve its quality and stability. Our new equipment; K5 Keratograph, for the first time, enables us to assess the function of your Meibomian glands along with its tear film quality.

We’ve also introduced Eye-Light IPL treatment for rejuvenating and improving the functions of these Meibomian Glands. This technology is currently the ONLY IPL dry eye treatment approved for BOTH upper and lower eyelids, improving the chance of success compared to earlier IPL treatments.

Every case of dry eyes is different. With our new diagnostic technology, this allows us to provide​ you with a​ treatment plan with the greatest success.
