Cost

This is essentially a cash business. Payment would be appreciated at the time of consultation. If the initial diagnostic screening is positive and a second diagnostic/prescriptive session to determine the exact tint is carried out, then the cost is likely to be about $620.00. This is made up of:

First assessment

$200.00 (incl. GST)  (At the end of this session you will know if the symptoms are present and if the coloured lens intervention will help. A coloured overlay is available to take home and try.)

Second assessment

$220.00 (incl. GST)

Recheck

$200.00 or $180.00 if done within 18 months of last appointment. (incl. GST)

Lenses

$200.00, plus postage.

Spectacle frames may need to be purchased separately. Other features such as an optical prescription or UV filters or fitting the lenses are extra.

As yet, Medicare does not cover any of the costs, although several private health funds are giving some rebate, particularly on the lenses.

Prescription lenses can be tinted provided they are made out of CR39 plastic, with no coatings or tints. Alternatively, our laboratory can make up the prescription as well.

A written report is issued with the lenses. However, as copies of reports are not kept, a request for a copy of the report at a later date could incur a smallcost.
