Coming to the eye clinic
Because eye conditions like cataract and glaucoma can get worse if not treated, we remain open and here for you. Learn about the actions our team is taking to provide you with the very best and safest care possible.
Your wellbeing is our priority
We have taken extra steps to ensure your in-person visits are welcoming and safe. We want to let you know the precautions and actions our team is taking to prioritise your wellbeing.
Special measures to keep you safe
We have introduced special measures to keep you safe. Here is what to expect when you come to clinic.
We are screening all patients and visitors for symptoms to protect them, their families and our staff, before they are welcomed into the clinic. You may be asked about any symptoms you may have, including two or three days before your appointment.
We understand this may make check-in longer than usual and we thank you for your patience.
Before you enter the waiting room, we will take your temperature using a thermometer that does not touch the skin to ensure that it measures below 37.5° C. No data from this procedure will be recorded.
Hand sanitiser and a mask
You will be greeted by an employee who will provide hand sanitiser and a clean mask if you do not have one.
Waiting rooms have been re-organised to allow for extra distance between patients and the floors have been marked with tape at 1.5 metre intervals.
The current universal mask policy adds another layer of protection.
