Western Eye Specialists joins forces with Vision Eye Institute

Vision Eye Institute has partnered with Western Eye Specialists to create the largest private ophthalmology clinic in Melbourne.

All patients of Western Eye Specialists’ Maribyrnong location will now be seen at Vision Eye Institute’s state-of-the-art Footscray clinic.

Patients attending Western Eye Specialists clinics in St Albans and East Melbourne will continue to have appointments at their usual clinic.

You will continue to receive high-quality care from your usual ophthalmologist.

Like Western Eye Specialists, Vision Eye Institute has been providing eye care to the local community for many years. The newly refurbished clinic has a contemporary interior and features 2 comfortable reception areas, 19 consulting rooms and 4 treatment rooms for minor procedures. It is also equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment.

The clinic is co-located with Footscray Day Surgery, meaning consultations and surgeries can take place at the same location for patient convenience and continuity of care.

Our new location

The clinic is located in central Footscray at 89 Paisley St, a short drive from Western Eye Specialists Maribyrnong clinic (now closed). 

Free and metred street parking is available in the adjacent streets. Footscray Plaza Shopping Centre car park is located one block away.

Footscray train station is a short walk from the clinic. Western region V/Line trains also stop at Footscray station, as does tram route 82.

Several bus routes stop on Paisley Street near our clinic (216, 220, 223, 409, 410, 412, 414, 472, 947).
