Temporary Changes During the COVID-19 Pandemic

We have implemented several changes to our office and procedures in order to limit exposure for our patients and staff .  Here is what to expect:

 

  • •  All patients and staff will be required to wear a mask.  Please bring one with you to your appointment.  If you do not have one, one will be provided for you.
  • •  New patients will be asked to register online to decrease time spent in the office filling out paperwork.
  • •  Appointment times will be spaced farther apart to decrease the number of patients in the office at any given time.
  • •  If you have experienced any flu-like symptoms in the last 7 days or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 your appointment will be rescheduled.
  • •  Anyone accompanying you to your appointment must wait in the car. Exceptions will be made for minor children, an adult accompanying a minor child, or a translator.
  • •  We will be performing Optomap Retinal Scanning in lieu of dilation whenever possible to minimize your time spent in the office.
  • •  We will be postponing any contact lens classes and fittings for new contact lens wearers to the beginning of summer.
  • •  Wherever possible, equipment has been modified to incorporate breath shields.
  • •  Equipment and rooms will be thoroughly sanitized in between patients.
  • •  In the frame room, any frame that is handled by a patient or staff member will be collected and sanitized before being put back on display.
  • •  Pick-ups and drop-offs will be arranged by phone and we will continue to offer curb-side service.

 

We sincerely appreciate the chance to serve you and your family.  Thank you for your cooperation and patience during these difficult times.
