About MetWest Eye Centre

Providing quality eye care to the people of Sydney's Greater West for over 20 years

MetWest Eye Centre is a privately owned ophthalmology practice, centrally located at Blacktown in the heart of Western Sydney.

In business since 1985 the Centre has grown to accommodate the growing population of the area and offers patients a highly professional and friendly eye service with specialist doctors available to treat most eye conditions using the latest technologies and equipment.

In 1993 a purpose built ophthalmic day surgery was created on the 1st floor which provides an accredited facility for our doctors to operate on patients, all in less than 3 hours. This facility has contracts with all the leading health funds and the Department of Veterans' Affairs ensuring patients no out of pocket costs for their hospital stay.

When attending a consultation with our eye doctors a referral letter from your general practitioner or optometrist is required every 12 months. This is to enable you to claim a rebate from Medicare Australia. Your appointment may take up to 3 hours. You may have dilating drops instilled in your eyes in order for the ophthalmologist to see the back of your eye. These drops may take between 20-40 minutes to work. Your eyes may be blurry for a period of hours after your visit. We recommend you bring someone with you to drive you home, and a pair of sunglasses to reduce the incidence of glare.
