It's business as usual for The Eye Practice in our temporary new headquarters - just 26 floors up from where we were.
After 16 years in our beautiful mezzanine-level practice at 44 Market St, Sydney, it's time for some renovations to spruce up the place! In fact the whole block is undergoing a fabulous makeover, with several new cafes and restaurants planned at street level.
We're feeling excited!
Over the past few weeks, the team at The Eye Practice - Jim, myself (Nicole), Alex, Nerida, Adele, Brian, Audrey and Arianna (pictured below with yours truly and the lovely Caroline Abram), have packed everything up and unpacked it all again just 26 floors up. And we'll have to do it all again in 12 months' time when the renovations are complete. (I'm trying not to think about this right now!)
Are we crazy?
We might be, but having looked at our options to move permanently to another location, we decided to put up with the hassles and stay right here where we know and love. The big moved happened in February this year, supported by a terrific effort from the whole team (and a case of Pinot Grigio... shhh!) We're all feeling quite settled in now and did I mention the views? What a stunning city we live in.
Can I still have my eye's tested?
Of course you can! We are fully set up for comprehensive eye exams, contact lens fittings and dry eye consultations - you'll just have to take the lift up to our new suite upstairs, LEVEL 26, 44 MARKET ST, SYDNEY. All glasses and contact lens collections continue as usual from this new location.
What to expect when you come to see us
Things may look a little different but it's the same team, the same quality, the same service as we've always had. Take the lift to Level 26 from the foyer (next to the entrance of our previous location). This will deliver you to reception for Level 26, where you will be greeted and can take in the views. One of our team will walk you through to our testing area, fully-equipped consultation rooms or glasses dispensing area, where it is business as usual.
When do move back?
We hope to be back in our old address (Mezzanine level, 44 Market St) in around twelve months BUT we know that anything worthwhile takes time so we're willing to be patient and hope you will be too! We are amazed at how supportive our patients have been about the changes and are already planning our big launch of the new practice - STAY TUNED FOR YOUR INVITATION!
Contact details, phone numbers and email all stay exactly as they were before.
Thanks for bearing with us!
