You may have a biometry screen if you have cataracts. The biometry screen measures the length and curvature of your eye. At the time of surgery, the lens in your eye is removed and replaced with an artificial lens. The biometry test tells us the strength lens required for you. If you have a biometry you will also have Topography & Autorefraction. A Medicare refund is available for this testing procedure.

Hard contact lens wearers should leave their contact lens out for at least one week prior to their consultation.
