COVID 19 PRACTICE POLICY
Maria Norris Optometrist is open and here for you.
We want to ensure your safety when you visit us, so we have implemented a few new protocols to benefit everyone:
We request that you attend alone, or with just one other person in the case of children or individuals with carers.
We may phone you to confirm appointments or discuss your needs prior to your appointment.
We will need you to confirm that you do not have any cold or flu symptoms, that you have not travelled to any hot spots in the past few weeks and that you have not been in contact with someone who is experiencing flu like symptoms.
We are spacing our appointment times out to limit the number of people in the practice and allow for extra cleaning time.
All patients are asked to disinfect their hands with hand sanitiser when they enter the office.
Chairs in the waiting room have been spaced 1.5 metres apart. Patients have the option to wait outside until the optometrist is available.
The optometrist may wear a face mask and or gloves and ask you to wear a mask for certain procedures requiring close proximity.
We are adhering to hygiene and safety guidelines as per the Department of Health and our Optometric Association. Equipment and surfaces are disinfected before and after each patient.
All frames that are tried on are separated and sterilized before being returned to the display.
