COVID Update:

NSW Health is advising that all health workers and patients are to wear a mask when attending any medical appointment as tightened restrictions come into effect.

All personalEYES clinics will be implementing the NSW Health directive effective immediately.  To protect the health of our patients, staff and visitors a mask must be worn at all times during their visit. We would like to advise that our clinics will reserve the right to move your appointment if there are any non compliance to the health advisory.

We’re here for you

During these uneasy times, we strive to protect the health & wellbeing of all our customers, whilst still providing critical services to the community.

We have imposed a number of measures across all personalEYES clinics, Parramatta Eye Centre & Hospital and The Dry Eye Institute:

We have stringent hygiene practices that are adhered to daily, and we have put in additional procedures to keep visitors and staff safe.

Hand sanitiser is readily available to patients at all clinics

Increased comprehensive cleaning through our certified cleaners, including increased frequency of cleaning for ALL medical equipment and high touchpoint areas throughout the facilities

We have reduced all non-essential visitors to our clinics, including suppliers, students & sale representatives
