Practice Changes - COVID-19

Changes in Work Hours

We wish to advice of changes in work hours and intentions as a direct result of the impact on our business by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Beginning Monday 6 April our doors will effectively close to all non-urgent or emergency patients for an unknown time-frame. It is my intention to provide two half day clinics to see urgent appointments; Tuesday and Thursday between 9am and 12 noon. These times will be made available by appointment only and triaged over the phone. It is not my intention for this to be a walk-in clinic.

I will see emergency cases any time during the week should that be required.

Emergencies that may require face-to-face consultation:

  • A sudden loss of vision
  • Pain and redness
  • Seeing haloes, or circles around lights
  • Experiencing new floaters or flashes of light
  • Bulging or swelling of the eye
  • Double vision
  • Sudden and persistent blurred vision
