Covid-19 (Corona Virus) update:

We are pleased to announce that as of Monday 18th May we are starting to reopen in a slightly reduced capacity. We will be operating with only one optometrist and one staff member most days. This will greatly control patient flow and allow the utmost care and control to adhere to Covid-19 laws. It is concerning that many people are not following social distancing laws and keeping 1.5 m away from each other. As a medical practice we are permitted to be within that range to perform tests and measurements. But frame choices/advice will be from a safe distance. Please be patient with us during this time.

Thank you for your understanding.

In the interest of keeping our staff, patients and families safe we ask that you:

  • Do not attend an appointment if you have any of these signs or symptoms a fever, sore throat, cough or new shortness of breath; have been in contact with a confirmed Covid-19 case or a person currently awaiting test results. 
  • Do knock on the door and wait to be admitted to the practice.
  • Do wash your hands/sanitise before entering (facilities available)
  • Do understand that we will only let one person into the practice at a time. If you attend an appointment with another person, we will ask them to wait outside the practice.
