A message for our valued supporters and patients

Here at the Queensland Eye Institute, we greatly value our community and wish to extend our thoughts and best wishes to each and every one of you in these difficult times. 

We have been taking measures to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and further protect the health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors. Patients and visitors have been asked to please not enter the building if they:

  • Have been in contact with a known case of COVID-19
  • Have recently travelled overseas or interstate and have NOT undergone a two week quarantine
  • Are awaiting COVID-19 test results
  • Have cold or fever symptoms (sore throat, coughing, sneezing etc)
  • Recently visited a COVID-19 hot spot (as identified on the Queensland Government website)

In addition to this, all QEI Clinic staff have been supplied with face masks and scrubs, as well as instructed on extra sanitising measures. Our facilities have also been undergoing extra cleaning every day. Please note that all visitors at this time will undergo contactless temperature checking. Our staff will also require the full names and contact details of all visitors to the building. 

We understand that it is easy to feel overwhelmed and anxious with all of the new information surfacing. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns that we may be able to assist with. 

Thank you for your continued support in these uncertain times. Most importantly, please remember to take care of yourselves and each other. 

Kindest regards, 

Professor Mark Radford
