Covid 19 (Coronavirus) Updates and Information

Toronto Eye Surgery is still open for consultations, minor procedures in the office and in hospital surgery. Where patients feel uncomfortable about attending appointments, you may delay your appointment if you deem your eye condition and vision to be stable. We are able to send your eye drops prescriptions to you or your chemist, where this is appropriate.

All elective eye surgeries at Warners Bay Private Hospital are still proceeding.

Appointments will be spaced out throughout the day to minimise interpersonal contact. There is increased daily cleaning of the practice. We encourage hand sanitiser use to entry into the practice. Face masks must be worn at the direction of the NSW government. The practice seats have been spaced, some have been placed outside the practice to allow for social distancing. An air purifier has been installed in the waiting room and consultation room to sanitise the air. We encourage you to pay with a credit card, to avoid handling cash.

If you have an emergency and cannot reach us, please contact your optometrist, GP or the eye registrar at John Hunter Hospital (02 4921 3000)

We understand that this COVID-19 outbreak will inevitably affect your life in many ways. Please stay safe and follow the instructions from the Australian Government. This inconvenience will be over sooner if we all work together.
