THE HEALTH & SAFETY OF OUR PATIENTS & STAFF
IS OUR #1 PRIORITY
We have implemented a number of important policy changes to limit the risk of patient exposure and ensure the safety of our staff. Temperature screening checks will be performed for all patients at the entrance to the office, and face masks are required in the building at all times.
While patient safety and public health are our highest priority, we want to reaffirm our commitment to providing care to those at risk for vision loss and those who have had changes in their vision.
THE FOLLOWING POLICY UPDATES ARE INTENDED TO
LIMIT THE RISK OF PATIENT EXPOSURE AND TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR STAFF:
Temperature screening checks at office entrance
Face masks required, provided if necessary
New digital retinal camera reduces need for eye dilation drops*
We will continue to prioritize patients who have urgent eye care needs—this includes surgery, treatment of sight-threatening conditions, and appointments for those who need glasses or contacts in order to function. We will begin seeing regular exams and check-up appointments as well, but we ask that you consider the necessity and the potential risks of exposure on a case-by-case basis.
Thank you for your continued flexibility. We are here for you now, just as we have been over the past 50 years. Our smiles may be behind our masks—but they are still there!
*Our doctors are evaluating patients on a case-by-case basis and may need to dilate your eyes in order to provide you with the best possible care.
