COVID-19 UPDATE

 

We are pleased to announce that PEEP has resumed routine eye care and our regular trading hours.

 

As always, if you are feeling unwell or are awaiting COVID-19 results as a primary or secondary contact, please reschedule your appointment as soon as possible.

We are a small team and any exposure to us would result in devastating ramifications and would seriously impact our ability to serve the community’s eye needs.

 

At this time, due to high active case numbers in Victoria, vaccination status or proof of medical exemption will be requested at the time of booking.

 

For unvaccinated individuals, after hours appointments will be on offer to ensure the safety of our other elderly, vulnerable and under 16 clients. A rapid antigen test will need to be performed prior to an appointment, at a cost to the client.

 

If you prefer contactless pick up of glasses and contact lenses, this can still be arranged. Please call us on 9041 4707 to discuss.

Hand sanitiser is provided in store for use before trying on spectacles and sunglasses.

 

For contact lens wearers, please bring along your own contact lens case to your appointment.

 

Antibacterial soap and warm water is best before inserting or removing your lenses. If hand sanitiser is used, we recommend rinsing your hands with water afterwards to remove any alcohol residue to avoid any lens surface damage.

As of 21st October 2021, face masks are mandatory for entry into our store, as per the DHHS restrictions.

Please wear a well fitting face mask for any consultation with our optometrist, as social distance cannot be maintained during an eye test. Face wrappings or scarves will not be considered sufficient.

Each frame in store is cleaned down with Clinell disinfectant wipes after handling to ensure minimal transmission risk from choosing your new specs. These are medical grade tools used in hospitals and are effective against viruses and bacteria.

 

We maintain strict hygiene in the consulting room and on the retail floor and have spaced our available appointments apart to ensure adequate time and care can be taken to sterilise our space.

Sick of your glasses fogging up when you wear your mask? Ask us about our anti-fog coating that can be included on your new glasses – we can demonstrate it’s effectivity in store!

 

If new glasses aren’t an option for you, the next best thing may be contact lenses to enable you to be spectacle free while masks are mandatory. See our contact lens page for more information on appointments and what is involved to set you up.
