What will happen to me on the day of my appointment?

Firstly you will be greeted by our receptionists who will take your relevant details (i.e. medicare card, pension card, private health etc). You will then be called by an Orthoptist who will take you through a preliminary assessment of your vision and eye health. The Orthoptist will ensure that all of the relevant tests have been performed so that Dr Zadeh has the necessary information for your consultation. If treatment is needed, North Queensland Eye Clinic staff will take you through each step and ensure that you are aware of all the relevant information.

Do I need a referral to see the Ophthalmologist?

If it your first visit to us at North Queensland Eye Clinic you will need a referral from either your Optometrist or General Practitioner. Your referral will last for 12 months. Our reception staff will inform you if a new referral is needed for subsequent visits.
