Our Boronia clinic (located within Melbourne Eastern Healthcare) is a specialist, state-of-the-art clinic offering private consultations on Mondays for retinal, macular and vitreal conditions. Our Tuesday clinic is specifically for intravitreal eye injections, which are bulk billed.
Patients receiving eye injections only need to cover the PBS prescription cost. A Medicare rebate applies to consultations if you have a referral from your GP or optometrist. Any patient who is transferring their intravitreal care from another clinic will be seen at a Monday clinic, but will be charged at Tuesday rates.
First opening in November 2016, Vision Eye Institute Boronia was set up specifically for patients with retinal conditions and features the latest in ophthalmic technology and equipment. Retinal specialist Dr Devinder Chauhan leads the clinical team and provides the consulting and eye injection services.
A wider range of tests and services is available at our larger retinal clinic in Melbourne’s East, Vision Eye Institute Box Hill.
Our clinic specialises in eye injections (also called intravitreal injections) – the most common treatment for wet age-related macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusion and diabetic eye disease. These involve injecting a drug into the eye that reduces bleeding and leakage from damaged or abnormal vessels.
Dr Chauhan has performed over 10,000 intravitreal injections and uses a combination of anaesthetic drops and gentle injection technique to put patients at ease and minimise any discomfort. Patients will generally feel pressure in the eye but no sharp pain. Most patients receiving an eye injection are in the clinic for approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
Boronia is in the eastern suburbs, approximately 32 km from the Melbourne CBD. Located within the Melbourne Eastern Healthcare facility, the clinic is close to Eastlink and features plenty of free parking and an onsite café.
DO NOT DRIVE YOURSELF TO YOUR APPOINTMENT – please ask someone to drive and accompany you to the clinic instead. During your visit, dilating drops will be applied to your eyes to allow us to examine your retina. These drops blur your vision and increase sensitivity to glare. You will not be able to drive safely for 4 to 6 hours afterwards.
Our clinic is a 20-minute walk from Bayswater train station. The Route 753 bus departs from Bayswater train station and stops very close to Melbourne Eastern Healthcare.
The clinic has convenient access for people with limited mobility.
