Please bring the following to your first appointment:
You should allow at least 1.5 hours for your visit. Because your eyes will generally be dilated, it is best to bring a driver.
There is a drop-off zone (bus zone for vehicles under 10m) at the front of the building. Street parking is timed and generally for one hour. Elderly patients with vision issues have difficulties with our narrow driveway and tight car spaces. There is an "all day" council car park around the corner on the western side of Bridge Road next to Ison Hardware. The Woolworths carpark off North Street has 3 hour parking.
