Health professionals can apply for continuing Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) treatment for some eye drugs by phone.
You can apply by phone for eye drugs that treat the following conditions:
- subfoveal choroidal neovascularisation
- retinal vein occlusion, and
- diabetic macular oedema
You’ll need to have had previous approval for the initial PBS subsidised application. Continuing treatment needs to be for the same eye.
