No need to leave the resort to have those important eye tests

Everyone needs to have their eyes tested on a regular basis but now it’s so easy because you can have all your important eye tests done right here at Beauty Point Retirement Resort.

There are now two optometrists who visit the resort by appointment, giving you their expert and personalised attention. They are Nada Chami and Georgia Papadopoulos and they’ll make sure all of your optometric needs are met.

These are the Top 3 Tests you can have as part of Beauty Point Optometric Services

1)    Vision tests for glasses – long distance and short distance
2)    Eye pressure tests for Glaucoma
3)    Retinal checks for the back of the eyes

Both Nada and Georgia graduated with honours in Optometry at the University of NSW in 1993. They have over 20 years of experience each and this allows them to understand each person’s individual requirements and how to help them accordingly.

Nada and Georgia have often worked together during their careers so they work well as a team. They visit the Beauty Point Retirement Resort by appointment (approximately each fortnight) and they can also do home visits if requested.

Don’t leave it too late
Both Nada and Georgia emphasis it’s important for everyone to have a yearly eye examination as early detection and treatment of eye disease can help reduce any loss to your vision.

When you see them, Nada and Georgia will check your eye pressure and the back of your eye to detect any early signs of:
•    Glaucoma
•    Macular degeneration
•    Diabetes
•    Cataracts
•    Dry eye problems

If they feel you need further treatment, they may refer you to an ophthalmologist. Eye examinations are bulk billed by Medicare so there’ll be no cost for your appointments with Nada and Georgia.

If you’d like to order glasses, they can offer you a wide choice of frames and lenses from the cheapest to the most expensive. These are all able to be claimed on your health fund if you have one and this refund can be claimed immediately so there’s no delay.

Happy to help with your questions
Nada and Georgia are happy to answer any of your questions regarding your vision. They feel no question regarding your vision should ever be dismissed.

“We like to allocate a fair bit of time for each patient,” says Nada. “It’s important we understand exactly what they need and we do our full range of tests so they get the right glasses for their daily needs,” she adds.

Nada and Georgia have found working as a team at the resort is going well: “We’re now quite mobile. We have everything we need at our fingertips and it’s working very well,” adds Georgia.
