Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update


Monday 23 March

With the developing situation concerning the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, in particular following the implementation of Government lockdown requirements affecting some sectors of the community, we wish to advise that Family Eyecare will remain OPEN at this time.

We would like to assure our patients and the public that we have taken measures at the practice to minimise the spread of the virus over and above our usual hygiene and sterilisation procedures. We are also mindful of the importance of accessible eye care, particularly in regards to eye health.

The precautions taken include:

  • Wiping down high traffic / contact areas such as door handles and light switches, as well as disinfection of all frames. This is in addition to the usual disinfection of all equipment prior to each patient being seen
  • Observing social distancing wherever possible, and minimise personal contact, both between patients in the waiting area and between optometrist and patient in the consulting room.
  • All optometrists and staff are well at the moment, however in the event of a staff member exhibiting symptoms, we will ensure the proper protocols are followed so as not to put any patients or other staff at risk.
  • We ask that any patients who are feeling unwell please reschedule / postpone their appointments to a later date

Thank you for supporting our business and we look forward to continuing to provide eye care for our local community.

We will update this message when necessary as the situation evolves.
