COVID-19 UPDATE

 

From 19th October 2020, PEEP will re-open for all face to face consultations as an essential allied health service.

 

We will be maintaining strict hygiene protocols and spacing our appointments out to one per hour, to enable adequate time for disinfection. We appreciate your understanding as we work through our wait list and try to accommodate everyone, while still maintaining a COVID-safe workplace.

 

Any clients who have cold or flu-like symptoms, who are themselves (or have a family member) currently awaiting COVID-19 test results; MUST reschedule their appointment for the safety of our staff and other clients.

The Department of Health is now enforcing a 14 day quarantine for close contacts of COVID-19 positive cases, regardless of their own test results.

 

Given we are a small practice with limited staff, any exposure in the store would extremely impact our ability to continue to serve your 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 6th December 2020, face masks are still mandatory in Melbourne when 1.5m social distance cannot be maintained and should be brought along to your appointment.

 

During an eye consultation, there may be times when the mask will need to be removed to avoid testing objects fogging up. If you are uncomfortable with this, it may be best to reschedule your appointment for now.

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 our routine 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.
