Welcome to Adelaide Eye Care
Perfecting Sight and Protecting Eye Health for Life is Adelaide Eye Care’s Mission.
Adelaide Eye Care's experienced and professional optometrists and our talented optical dispensers (frame and lens experts) offer you complete eye care. By understanding you and your visual needs, and thoroughly understanding your eyes and vision, we recommend high-quality optical products that enhance your life through better sight.
We strive to be leaders in our industry, with the latest frame fashions, spectacle lens technology and diagnostic equipment helping us give you the best outcomes.
We have special interests in contact lens fitting and children's vision assessment and training.
We welcome new patients, young and old, routine and complex, and hope to look after the eyes of whole families for life.
Covid-19 Update: 9 June 2020 - Back to 'Normal'
Thanks to terrific work by all South Australians and by SA Health, with the easing of restrictions and no community transmission of the Coronavirus, Adelaide Eye Care is now back to normal opening hours. We are now open to help you and your family with their vision and eye care needs.
We have enhanced hygiene practices to keep you and us as safe as possible from COVID-19, and we are now happy to receive our patients and customers back for routine care and optical sales.
Starting from June 10, we are implementing an online appointment booking service. This is still in testing and further development, so there may be some quirks.
We are scheduling fewer appointments each day in order to allow for extra cleaning and disinfection, although we are becoming more efficent at this, so we appreciate your patience at booking appointments with us.
Optometrists by Branch:
Westbourne Park: Mr Rene Malingre, Mrs Dipika Mistry, Ms Stephanie Mitris and & Mrs Helen Keen
Blackwood: Mrs Dipika Mistry, Mrs Helen Keen, Ms Elizabeth Capper, Ms Stephanie Mitris & Rene Malingre (some Saturdays only)
Mawson Lakes: Mr Rex Wallis, Ms Elizabeth Capper, Mrs Helen Keen, Mrs Lisa Royle & Mr Rene Malingre
Of course, if you have respiratory symptoms or fever, we ask that you do not come and see us until you are well, and go and get yourself tested!
What to expect when you visit the practice:
We are practising appropriate distancing, and only allow one other person apart from the optometrist and patient into the consulting room, and have limits on how many people may be in each room of the practice. You will be asked to wash your hands with soap and water or use alcohol hand sanitiser when you arrive, and we will check your temperature with a non-contact forehead thermometer. For close-contact interactions we will protect against respiratory droplet spread through the use of a mask and/or a shield. We will be cleaning all surfaces including instruments, door handles, light switches, pens, keyboards, desks, etc, etc with hospital-grade disinfectant between uses, and we will be washing our hands between every interaction (as we always do!)
