To Our Wonderful Waiuku Community

In response to recent COVID-19 cases identified in the community, New Zealand has moved into Lockdown

For BOTH the Unichem Waiuku and Unichem Waiuku Medical pharmacies things will change a little to how we normally operate. Here is a reminder:

 

  • MASK wearing in the Pharmacy is MANDATORY - Staff and customers must wear masks at essential services, such as supermarkets, pharmacies, dairies, and service stations. PLEASE HAVE A MASK ON WHEN YOU ENTER OUR STORE.
  • ** DO NOT ** come into the pharmacy if you have just had a Covid test. You will be provided with a paper slip that has a phone number on it to contact us, so we can help if you need a prescription. Call us if you need assistance first.
  • Restricted customer numbers in-store. This is due to the 2-metre social distancing required.
  • Increased sanitisation, hygiene, and cleaning protocols ( please sanitise on entry at one of our sanitiser stations )
  • Anyone who has cold or flu symptoms should get a test and stay home until you have a negative test result. You can find your local testing facility at https://www.healthpoint.co.nz/covid-19/
  • Scan in using the Covid scanning app or sign in if you don’t have the app. Turn on the blue tooth function on your tracing app
  • Screens will be up to limit exposure
  • Contactless payment to be used wherever possible
  • There may be longer wait times so please be patient
  • We ask you to please remain calm. Do not come in unless it is urgent. Our phone lines are inundated and our team is working hard to manage all enquiries.
  • WHEN PICKING UP A PRESCRIPTION, please phone ahead. That way we can give you a rough time frame as to when you can expect your script to be ready. Upon pick up, you will be required to wait outside the pharmacy or in your car until your script is ready.
  • Locations of interest are being updated as new information becomes available at https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/covid-19-novel-coronavirus/covid-19-health-advice-public/contact-tracing-covid-19/covid-19-contact-tracing-locations-interest
  • PLEASE download the COVID tracker app and scan the QR code in store - https://tracing.covid19.govt.nz/
  • Help keep our pharmacy staff safe! If you are unwell DO NOT go into the pharmacy - call ahead for advice or to arrange prescriptions.
  •  

No one wants to be here again, but we are so PLEASE remember to be KIND, PATIENT, and know we are ALL trying to do the best we can. Please be compassionate and check in on people who are by themselves. There is always heightened anxiety for some around this time

 

We've been here before, we know how to handle this. Keep calm, be kind, and we will get through this together again. We're here to help.

 

Thank you and stay safe Waiuku!

from  the entire team at Unichem Waiuku Pharmacy and Medical Pharmacies

Extended Information:

Lutein and zeaxanthin
Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids found in the human eye. The highest concentration is found in the macular area of the retina.
The macula is responsible for central vision. Our ability to recognise faces, read, drive, see colours and contrast are all dependent on a healthy macula.

 

In the macula, lutein and zeaxanthin support a natural layer of yellow pigment called the macular pigment.  This pigment serves as an effective natural filter of the most damaging light (near-to-UV blue light) that reaches the retina.  A dense macular pigment is more protective than one of low density.


In addition to supporting pigment density, lutein and zeaxanthin function as antioxidants, helping to protect a healthy retina and lens of the eye.


Selenium
Lutein-Vision Advanced™ contains selenium as selenomethionine, an easily absorbed form of selenium. Selenium plays an important role in the body’s antioxidant system.


Omega-3 fatty acids
Several studies have found that higher intakes of omega-3 fatty acids and fish are associated with good eye health. Very high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids, particularly DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), are present in the retina, specifically in photoreceptor cells and the vascular part of the retina.
The photoreceptors are constantly being renewed and therefore a constant supply of DHA may be required for proper retinal function.
