Our clinic specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of retinal disorders, including urgent and emergency cases. We focus on delivering high quality patient care, based on individual attention, prompt diagnosis and a straightforward explanation of your condition. Our endeavour is to provide patients with access to world-class specialist care, including the latest technology and treatments available. We have an on-site day surgery for your convenience.
Vision Eye Institute Box Hill is equipped with the latest technology and diagnostic imaging equipment, ensuring that we are at the forefront in the provision of eye healthcare services.
We are co-located with Vision Day Surgery Eastern, meaning surgical procedures can be performed on-site. The day surgery is also equipped with a state-of-the-art femtosecond laser for laser cataract surgery.
Our clinic sees and treats patients specifically with conditions affecting the retina, including those who require urgent or emergency care. Diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusion, retinal detachment, posterior vitreous detachment, epiretinal membrane, macular degeneration and macular hole are some examples.
A trained and highly experienced orthoptic team are responsible for the clinic’s triage service, providing timely and appropriate scheduling of clinical appointments according to patient need.
During your visit a number of different techniques will be used to examine your retina. Eye drops that dilate your pupils will be used to allow us to perform these tests. These drops will blur your vision and increase glare sensitivity. Your vision will take about 4 to 6 hours to recover.
After your consultation, an orthoptist will answer any further questions you have about your condition and treatment options. This service is provided to help you make an informed decision regarding your treatment plan.
Eye (intravitreal) injections, retinal and vitreous surgery and retinal laser treatment are some of the procedures that we may perform to treat your condition.
Where possible or necessary, we will carry out all tests and treatment on the same day. Many retinal conditions (e.g retinal detachment) can be sight threatening and treatment/surgery may be recommended to you on an urgent basis. If retinal laser treatment is required for your condition, it is usually performed on the same day. Laser therapy takes place in the consultation room and involves little, if any, discomfort.
We see patients with cataracts in the clinic, while cataract surgery is performed in our day surgery. A neuro-ophthalmology service is also available.

DO NOT DRIVE YOURSELF TO YOUR APPOINTMENT – please ask someone to drive and accompany you to the clinic instead.

You will not be able to drive safely for 4 to 6 hours afterwards.
We endeavour to carry out all diagnostic tests and perform treatment, if required, on your first visit. This means that you may be in the clinic for up to 3 hours.
There are plenty of public transport options. The 109 tram stops directly opposite our clinic, and the Box Hill train station is a 3-minute walk away.
The clinic has ramp and lift access for people with limited mobility.
