Our affordable clinic is suitable for patients who currently receive eye injections to treat potentially blinding conditions such as wet macular degeneration (also known as age-related macular degeneration or AMD), diabetic eye disease (including diabetic retinopathy) or retinal vein occlusion (blockage of the small veins in the retina).
A regular, ongoing course of intravitreal injections is usually required to preserve vision. Unfortunately, around 26% of patients stop treatment after only twelve months, which may increase their risk of blindness.* The reasons for stopping are often cost and inconvenience.
Our eye injection clinic at Vision Eye Institute Boronia was set up to address these issues and encourage patients with macular disease (and some retinal conditions) to continue treatment.
Patients who are eligible for Medicare will have no out-of-pocket costs for consultations and scans and will only have to pay the PBS amount for prescriptions.
Transferring to the clinic is easy. Simply give us a call and our friendly staff will talk you through the process.

As a patient-focused company, Vision Eye Institute aims to deliver the best possible clinical outcomes. To achieve this, our practice must continue to evaluate and innovate. Vision Eye Institute’s doctors have created a culture that emphasises rigorous clinical review.
Through regular, methodical and comprehensive review of all facets of clinical and surgical practice, our doctors can readily benchmark themselves against best-practice outcomes. The demand for our doctors to share their results and experiences at scientific conferences, both locally and overseas, is a testament to our ability to deliver a consistently high standard of patient care and clinical outcomes.
Due to the size of our organisation, we are able to support our doctors with a dedicated research team. This team is responsible for translating the data into peer-reviewed research articles and extending the group’s research interests.
