MARCH 17, 2020

Due to the escalation of COVID 19 and in the interest of public safety, Newcastle Eye Care will be closed to non-emergency eye care services until at least March 29th.   The aim is to reduce the risk of community spread and support government calls for social distancing.

If you require urgent eye care, please call and leave a message and we will get back to you within 12 hours.  For a quicker response, you may contact us by leaving a written message below and we will reply via email.


We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. The well-being of our patients, our team and our community is paramount.
