Our COVID-19 Response
The health, safety and wellbeing of our patients is our continuing priority
Optometric services are allowed under the current COVID-19 lockdown laws. Currently, our practice is still open during our normal hours to provide essential services, including urgent consultations and dispensing of spectacles and contact lenses. We also introduce our new Telehealth consultation service via phone or video. Appointments can be booked via phone 9343 0278, email firstname.lastname@example.org or online on www.gloryeyecare.com during our opening hours.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to reassure that we are taking every necessary precaution to reduce and hopefully eliminate any risk during our patients visits to our practice. If the patient feels safe to travel to our practice and they are not classed as high risk or require essential optometric services, please see the following measures we have put in place to minimise their risk:
Confirming with patients during pre-appointment attendance calls that they are not COVID-19 compromised due to travel, contacts or illness
Each patient to wash or sanitise hands and wear a mask upon arrival
Wiping down all chairs, doors, surfaces and equipment with medical grade disinfectant after each patient use
Operating a ‘same seat only’ policy. Each patient is given a piece of paper to indicate their seat until their departure from the clinic ensuring nobody else sits there in the interim
Patients instructed to be seated at least 1.5 meters apart to maintain social distancing
Staff members working from home where possible
Staff to wash or sanitise hands after arrival and departure of each patient
Staff wearing masks

We have limited stock of quality medical masks, eyewear and hand sansitiser for sale. The masks were tested and manufactured by a sansitised lab in Hong Kong. The hand sansitiser is made in Australia with World Health Organisation formula.
