WE will be open as usual during lockdown 2.0
In line with the government’s new national restrictions in England to reduce the spread of COVID-19 from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December 2020, the College of Optometrists has advised its members that all practices remain open to provide routine examinations and services. This is in line with NHS England recommendations.
The Eyeworks team hope you are staying safe and well in what has become a very changed world over the last few months. We are all looking forward to the day where we can resume our normal daily life.
Infection control and hygiene have always been important for us but we have also been working very hard behind the scenes to develop new practice protocols and install new equipment to help keep patients and staff safe. There will be strict cleaning and disinfection of all touch points, provision of PPE, protective screens, and special UVC Sterilising equipment.
Some of the changes you may notice are:
- Sneeze screen at the reception desk
- Alcohol hand sanatising stations
- Removal of leaflets and magazines in the waiting area. There are fewer chairs in the area. The chairs can now be regularly wiped clean
- Social distancing floor markers
- Our staff will wear the necessary PPE
- UVC disinfection for any frames tried on
- Breath screens on our examination room equipment.
- Larger time gaps between eye examinations so the consulting room chairs and equipment can be cleaned.
We appreciate your understanding as we adapt to a different way of working. We will contact you prior to your appointment to fill out a short health questionnaire. In order to limit the number of people in the practice, we request you contact us before visiting.
The guidance given to us is continually changing so we will update you with any changes to our practice protocols. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will try our best to help you.
Please take care and stay safe.
All our love, Eyeworks team
