Unhappy Medical/Referral

I had my second appt for my medical this morning, everything checkout ok but they want me to see an ophthalmologist to get a report on my eye condition to say its stable etc.
I have been to my GP and got him to write to a referral letter for an eye doc.
So has this happened to anyone else? Also does anyone know how much this ophthalmologist’s exam is going to be roughly?

Thanks!

Initial specialists fees are usually around a $100 or so for a first consultation and unless a doctor thinks any complex testing is required, that's all you may be up for or the consultation could also include a charge for examination, maybe another $100 or so if done in house at time of consultation.
If there was further testing, scans or something like that, then there could be fees of several hundred $$$.
