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.

Symptoms check

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.

Temperature check

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.

Waiting rooms

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.
