Civil Aviation Safety Authority Examinations

See Optometry has a CASA accredited optometrist who can provide an aviation eye exam for those in the aviation industry, including pilots and flight controllers.

The test is specific to the aviation industry and includes tests for:

  1. Colour vision testing
  2. Peripheral vision testing
  3. Contrast sensitivity
  4. Binocular vision and coordination

As part of the test pupils will be dilated, so vision will be blurry and they may be sensitive to light for a few hours. We suggest you bring a driver with you to take you home.

Please also bring with you:

  1. Photo ID
  2. Aviation Reference Number
  3. All the glasses and contact lenses used for flying, including sunglasses
  4. Any relevant medical and ocular documents

The results will be submitted directly to CASA on the day of the appointment.

You don’t need a referral from your GP, you can book an appointment directly with our optometrist.
