Limited warranty against breakage of good optical quality products (excluded low cost non-optical quality products)
Glory Eyecare Optometrists sell optical quality products which are guaranteed for a period of twelve months (longer on some products which we will confirm for you) from the date of purchase against all manufacturing defects. This warranty does not cover: scratches on sun lenses; defects caused by accident, abuse, neglect, shock, improper use or storage of the product; unauthorized modifications or repairs; normal wear and tear, as well as any issue concerning prescription lenses. If the product is returned with proof of purchase to the Glory Eyecare Optometrists practice they were purchased from within the warranty period, and Glory Eyecare Optometrists find that the breakage was due to a defect in material or workmanship, the product will be repaired or replaced at our option and returned to the sender. If it is not clear whether the fault is the result of a defect or misuse, it may be necessary for the item to be returned to the manufacturer for assessment to determine whether or not you are entitled to a replacement or refund. You will be responsible for any expenses in returning them to us, collecting them and to the suppliers and repairer and our handling fees. Please note: While every care is taken by our suppliers to ensure screws remain tight, they may loosen with wear. We recommend regular maintenance to ensure lenses and frames remain secure. Lack of regular maintenance may result in lens or frame damage and this may not be covered by this warranty.

PATIENT FEEDBACK / COMPLAINTS
From our experience, unsatisfied patients are often caused by misunderstanding, bias, unwillingness for discussion and improbable expectations, such as under-estimating the complexity of the case and the costs of good products and services, and over-estimating the benefits from Medicare and the benefits of cheap products and services. An open mind with realistic expectations and good communication allows our innovative evidence based experienced optometrist to solve your problem(s) satisfactory!
Medicare allows all optometrists to charge according to their cost structure. Different practitioners and practices have different experience, expertise and equipment; more complicated, longer consultations done with higher quality equipments and technologies have higher costs, and therefore higher fees. Bulk billing is subject to Medicare eligibility and can vary between different cases, health services and providers. We offer both bulk billed Classic Consultations and private billed Speciality Testings and Consultations to suit individual visual and eyecare needs. Our billing is based on recommended fees and Medicare guidelines. Explanation and recommended fees of the consultation were provided, agreed and signed before the tests were conducted by our experienced therapeutically endorsed optometrist. We strictly follow professional, Medicare and government guidelines.
Realistic budget and expectations with an understanding and grateful mind lead to happy patient and practitioner relationship and eventually satisfied and happy outcome and experience! Unfortunately, I have seen many people keep complaining their good service providers who provide quality and advanced services because they themselves expect a lot out of unrealistic budgets, especially first timer without any previous experience to compare. They can't differentiate different quality and appreciate quality until they learn from bad experience and losses incurred from poor services and/or products. Worse still, they might damage the relationship with good service providers and can't access their services when they really need them, such as urgent care, emergency and advanced specialty services, which are not provided by basic service providers . Eventually, they were trapped with discount service providers with basic services and missed the lifelong opportunities for the best, specialty and advanced services to achieve the best outcomes for themselves and their family!
Realistic expectations are the keys to satisfactory outcomes and happiness!
Honesty, mutual respect, understanding and gratitude leads to harmony and best outcomes!
Be reasonable and keep good relationship with your local service providers!
