To Our Valued Patients,

We are pleased to announce that our office is re-opening as of Monday June 1, 2020 for patient care.

Our office has enhanced our safety protocols to ensure a high degree of patient safety. These new measures include but are not limited to:

  • All patients will undergo a screening process over the phone prior to their appointment. The screening will review symptoms, travel history, contact with other potential COVID-19 carriers and reason for visit.
  • To maintain social distancing, our office will require appointments for eye exams, eyewear consultations, adjustments and repairs.
  • The front entrance will be locked and patients with appointments will be allowed entry at their designated appointment time.
  • There will be complete sanitization and deep clean before and after each patient interaction.
  • All of our doctors and staff will be fully equipped with personal protective equipment that cover their eyes, nose and mouth. We have installed a plexiglass screen at our front desk and large breath shields have been added to equipment in our examination rooms.
  • Fewer patient appointments will be scheduled, and appointments will be booked in longer intervals to ensure physical distancing.
  • We will be offering white glove service in our gallery. Frames removed from the wall will be thoroughly disinfected after being touched.
  • We are offering contactless curb side pick up of glasses, contact lenses, accessories, eye drops, and vitamins.
  • All doctors and staff health status will be monitored on a regular basis.

In preparation for your eye examination:

  • Masks are required for anyone over the age of 2 entering the clinic.
  • We ask that patients come to their appointment alone to limit the amount of people in the office. Exceptions are made for guardians accompanying a minor, caregivers or translators. In these cases, the accompanying visitor will undergo the same screening process before being allowed entry.
  • Patients are requested to remain in their car and enter when guided in by a technician, to allow us to observe social distancing.
  • Upon arrival, please review the office policy signage and use the hand sanitizer mounted on the wall to your left.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this difficult time. Our priority is the health and safety of our patients and staff. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any further questions. Stay healthy, we hope to see you all soon!
