COVID-19 UPDATE

 

We are pleased to announce that PEEP will be re-opening for routine eye care on Friday 22nd October 2021 at 10am.

Our trading hours will return to normal at this point.

 

We are currently working through our waitlist from lockdown 5.0/6.0 and prioritising appointments for clients who had their appointments cancelled earlier, so please bear with us as we are working through a high volume of calls and enquiries.

 

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, a rapid antigen test may be available 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.

 

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.

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

 

For contact lens wearers, please bring along your 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.

 

We will be abiding by strict density limits of 1 person per 4 square metres.

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.
