Aviation Eye Examinations

When requested, pilots and air-traffic controllers, whether class 1,2,or 3 certified must have a vision exam with a Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) Credentialed Optometrist (CO). During the CASA eye examination, our optometrists assess various aspects of visual function to ensure pilots meet the stringent visual requirements regulated by CASA. We prioritise open communication to ensure pilots feel confident and informed throughout the entire examination.
