What we do

Referrer Information

The Eye Health Centre of Western Australia offers two types of clinics: Primary Care Clinic and Specialty Care Clinics.

The Primary Care Clinic is open to the general public and does not require a referral. The Specialty Care Clinics generally require referrals and are designed to cater for patients with more complex eye conditions ranging from dry eyes, glaucoma, to binocular vision problems.

We partner with community optometrists, general practitioners, and other health practitioners to achieve the best health outcome for our patients. We do not dispense optical aids such as spectacles and contact lenses in our Primary Care Clinics. However, optical aids may be dispensed if used to treat the specific condition relating to the reason for referral. For example, a scleral lens may be dispensed in the Specialty Contact Lens Clinic to manage a patient with keratoconus.
