As at 10/06/2020: 

Given that SA is currently free of COVID we are almost back to normal in regards to clinic and surgeries. Patients who are sick or who have been travelling should still avoid coming but all other patients are welcome back once again. 

Surgeries:

All surgery is now proceeding. Restrictions remain in regards to social distancing, spacing and hygiene as introduced during the COVID era but we are no longer restricted in regards to the different eye conditions that we can treat or the procedures that we offer. Cataract surgery was initially only offered to those with severe vision impairment but now we are back to offering cataract surgery to all patients. Other surgeries for glaucoma and cornea have continued, as have injections for macular disease. 

Persisting changes to the clinic:

- Increased space between chairs in waiting room
- Remove magazines and water station (staff can still get you a cup of water when required)
- Alcohol wipes and hand sanitiser stations
- Additional cleaning procedures between patient consults with 70% alcohol solution (as is the best current recommendation)
- Masks will be worn for all contact and discussion within 1m
