Making a referral to the Eye Clinic

All referrals to the Sydney Children's Hospital and Prince of Wales Hospital Eye Clinic (excluding eye emergencies and traumas) require a completed Eye Clinic Referral Form.

Referral forms

Sydney Children's Hospital Lion's Eye Clinic for Children Referral Form

Please provide us with the referral, by one of the methods listed below:

  • Fax the referral to 9382 2281
  • Bring the referral in person to our reception
  • Post the referral via mail to the Eye Clinic, Level 4, High Street Building, The Prince of Wales Hospital, High Street, Randwick, NSW 2031. 

Incomplete referrals will be returned and will not be processed until all the required information has been provided.

Once the completed referral has been received and triaged by our clinic, your patient will be placed in a wait-list for the next available appointment. When your patient's appointment has been confirmed, we will notify them by sending a letter to their home address confirming the date, time and location of their appointment.

If your patient is experiencing a medical emergency please dial 000 or direct your patient to their nearest Hospital Emergency Department.

If your paediatric patient’s referral is urgent please contact:

  • The Lions Eye Clinic for Children staff directly on 9382 2261 (Press option 1, then 3) during opening hours or 
  • The on-call Paediatric Ophthalmology Registrar (via the Switchboard operator) on 9382 2222 outside of opening hours.
