Urgent Eye Care

by | 14 Apr 2020 | Eye Health, News

We have been providing urgent and essential eye care throughout the COVID-19 situation.

Now we are returning to normal services, with additional cleaning between every patient appointment. However, this does mean that appointments are filling faster than normal. We don’t want this to impact our ability to look after your urgent and essential eye care needs. So, we have reserved appointments throughout the week that are not visible online.

To book an urgent appointment, please call us directly on 54473711. We’ll ensure you are taken care of.
