A Focus on Patient Care & Safety
We are accepting appointments for eye exams and other eye care needs, and we continue to provide telehealth options to those who qualify. Please note that our offices are requiring masks for doctors and staff and strongly recommend masks for patients unless state or local authorities (which includes local optometry boards) require masks, in which case we will follow what the authorities require. We are closely monitoring changes as they occur and encourage all visitors to wear a mask at this time.
You can feel confident with a visit to our offices knowing we have revisited every step in your visit, with your safety and that of our medical team in mind. We have outlined additional disinfection and cleaning procedures that continue to be a focus for our team to ensure cleanliness.
What is the staff doing differently?
Our team is required to submit to a basic screening at the beginning of every shift, prior to reporting to work and also upon arrival at the office. This includes a daily evaluation of signs or symptoms. Self reporting of any COVID-19 related symptoms, including fever, cough, fatigue, shortness of breath, loss of sense of smell/taste, diarrhea, or extended exposure to an individual with COVID-19. Employees exhibiting signs or symptoms will not report to work.
What to expect upon arrival at the office.
Patients and visitors are encouraged but not required to wear their own mask or cloth face covering upon arrival to the facility.
You will be asked to check in with the designated Compliance Officer when you arrive. This person will conduct a brief health assessment questionnaire prior to checking you in for your appointment.
We encourage all patients to print and complete the Welcome Sheet with your updated contact and health information and bring with you to your appointment. You will be required to sign a consent form prior to seeing the doctor; a new or disinfected pen will be provided upon request.
What to expect during your visit.
All equipment or tools used throughout the pre-testing process and while in the exam lane will be continuously disinfected between patients.
When it comes time to pick out your eyewear, we invite you to peruse our collection as you normally would. Our staff will sanitize any frame you wish to try on if you so choose.
We welcome you to visit us anytime, and look forward to seeing you soon.
