Eye screening and elective eye surgeries are not allowed during the circuit breaker period.
The eye specialist clinics are still open for urgent and medically essentially services. If there is
any symptom like acute blurring of vision, eye pain and redness, you should still seek treatment
Rest assured that the clinics will follow strict hygiene and disinfection guidelines. For patients
with stable conditions, the appointments will be postponed and medication refills will be arranged.
If you do visit the clinic in person during the coronavirus pandemic, expect changes to the clinic
procedures. The clinic/hospital is restricting the number of visitors and each patient is only
allowed to have one visitor. If you do not need someone to be there with you, please do not bring
anyone to your appointment.
Both patient and accompanying person will need to do health declaration and use SafeEntry to check
in/check out. SafeEntry is the mandatory national digital system for contact tracing. In addition,
the ophthalmologist will use a special plastic breath shield on the slit lamp machine when examining
your eyes. The shields will be also found on other equipment.
