To Our Patients,
Out of an abundance of caution, we are asking all our patients who are considered high risk, to postpone non-essential excursions outside their homes in order to reduce risk of contracting COVID-19. This includes anyone over the age of 60, pregnant or nursing mothers, and anyone who is immunocompromised.
Although our office staff is vigilant about following all CDC and AOA guidelines, sanitizing all surfaces and eyewear, disinfecting all equipment, and common areas (reception area, bathroom, door handles, etc.), we nonetheless wish to avoid risking the health of our most vulnerable patients with unnecessary exposure to others who may be contagious but asymptomatic.
In an effort to further protect our patients and staff, we ask that you all are mindful of the following precautions:
- If you are sick, please stay home. If you have had contact with someone who is ill or are caring for someone at risk, please defer your appointment.
- If you have an ocular emergency or any urgent issue –please call us to schedule a telephone consult. If the doctor determines that he/she cannot resolve an urgent concern without seeing you in person, we will arrange an appointment for you in our office.
- If you or your child are out of contacts or have broken or lost your glasses, and cannot get to our office, we can almost always fabricate and ship a replacement set, as we have your measurements on file.
Until further notice the office remains open for all your needs, including emergencies.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this difficult time as we all work together to keep our community healthy and safe.
