Clinic services

Our clinic provides services for the diagnosis, management and treatment of retinal diseases, including diabetic eye disease, macular degeneration and intravitreal injections (eye injections). We also provide cataract and lens surgery, and ophthalmic care for patients with general eye conditions.

Retinal conditions

Our retinal ophthalmologist Dr Mei Tan is one of the most experienced retinal specialists in Melbourne. Her research on retinal conditions has been published numerous times in peer-reviewed journals. Vision Eye Institute Jacana offers the full range of treatments for retinal conditions, including procedures for macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, eye floaters, retinal tears and macular holes.

If you have a retinal appointment with us, please bring a pair of sunglasses with you to the consultation. This is because pupil-delating drops may be used to examine your retina, which may increase your sensitivity to light for a period after your appointment. Please also be aware that you may need to wait until your vision returns to normal after your consultation before you can drive home. If you are unable to wait after your appointment, you may wish to make other travel arrangements.

Cataract surgery

Cataract surgery involves the removal of a cloudy, hard-to-see-through lens from the eye, which is then replaced with a new artificial lens. This procedure is one of the most commonly performed in the world and it can have a transformative impact on a person’s life. Our cataract surgeons are highly experienced and will guide you through the process of choosing the replacement lens that best suits your individual needs.

Please be aware that you may require pupil-dilating drops during your consultation with us. This medication can make your vision blurry and increase your sensitive to sunlight and glare. Because of this, you may be unable to drive and might need to arrange for someone to accompany you home or wait until the effects wear off before driving yourself. We also recommend that you bring a pair of sunglasses with you to your appointment.
