Good color vision, depth perception and contrast sensitivity are also important qualities for pilots.
At The Eye Health Centre, we are closely attuned to the eye care needs of pilots as well as other professionals in the aviation industry. Dr Andrew Apel and Dr John Hogden are Designated Aviation Ophthalmologists (DAO) for the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), and underwent post-graduate training in aviation, which qualifies them to provide eye examination services for pilots, air traffic controllers and individuals applying for aviation licenses. Our clinical optometrists, Jason Holland and Phuc Ngo, are both CASA-credentialed optometrists. We are pleased to do our part to ensure safety for both pilots and the public by providing excellent clinical assessment and care.
