If you are applying to join the Defence Force, you may be referred to an Ophthalmologist for a specific eye examination prior to your acceptance.
You must have someone drive you to the appointment as your pupils will be dilated and you will be unfit to drive for several hours after the appointment.
On the day of your appointment bring:
- your spectacles (If you are a contact lens wearer please be sure you have removed them for the appropriate time prior to the appointment.)
- a list of current medications
- sunglasses, to reduce the glare after your eyes have been dilated
You can expect to be at the clinic for 1½ – 2 hours. If you no longer require your appointment, please contact the clinic to cancel your booking.
