Corona Virus Notice

COVID – 19

The well-being of our clients and staff is important to us. If you have a booking with Eyemedics, we kindly request you read the following regarding our Covid safe practices and requirements for adults and children. We would like to assure you that we have rigorous safety protocols in place to minimise risk. Our focus is to continue supporting our community for as long as possible.

Each patient and caregiver is now required by law to wear a surgical mask and we ask that you bring and wear your own - a cloth mask is unfortunately not acceptable. We would also appreciate your support in helping us maintain social distancing in our waiting rooms. If you are not the patient and it is not necessary for you to remain, we may ask you to leave the premises.

If you arrive more than 10 minutes early for your appointment, we will ask you to leave and return no earlier than 10 minutes prior to your appointment.

ADULTS

Eyemedics is complying with the new SA Health directive regarding mask-wearing and having a covid safe plan.

Restrictions remain in place for all care givers attending with our patients. Care givers will only be allowed to stay with the patient if the patient is unable to communicate with our staff and doctors. Only one care giver will be allowed to attend.

Please refer to this website prior to your appointment to see if any updates have been made. You may call us any time between 8am - 5pm if you have any questions or concerns around these changes.

If you arrive more than 10 minutes early for your appointment, we will ask you to leave and return no earlier than 10 minutes prior to your appointment.
