COVID – 19
Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic declaration, and as a result of high transmissibility levels followed by quick dissemination among population, we inform that we are temporary suspending programed activities regarding appointments and surgeries. This applies to treatments that can be postponed with no prejudice of short, medium or long-term visual health. Such decision follows World Health Organization and Directorate-General for Health’s guidelines, as well as recommendations by Portuguese Ophthalmology Society and Portuguese Medical Association.
The goal is to reduce unnecessary risk of virus exposure caused by the obvious need of inter-personal communication. Never neglecting ophthalmic pathology needing timely observation and intervention, and for greater emergency situations, Dr. Paulo Freitas da Costa is available for contact through the following e-mail address: email@example.com.
Do not hesitate to contact us for any additional information.
