OUR OFFICE IS REOPENING ON MONDAY, MAY 11
Medically necessary appointments and surgery available at our doctors’ discretion
Over the past several weeks, we have limited in-person office visits strictly to urgent eye care, and offered telehealth solutions to many of our other patients. Beginning Monday, May 11, we will begin seeing patients on site as deemed medically necessary by our doctors.
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.
EFFECTIVE MONDAY, MAY 11, THE FOLLOWING POLICY UPDATES ARE INTENDED TO LIMIT THE RISK OF PATIENT EXPOSURE AND TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR STAFF:
Medical and insurance information reviewed by phone to limit patient time in office
Curbside (“call from the car”) registration
Temperature screening checks at office entrance
Face masks required, provided if necessary
New digital retinal camera reduces need for eye dilation drops
Exam follow-ups limited to phone or video call
— Office hours to be adjusted as needed —
During this period of transition, 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 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.
If you have an appointment scheduled, our staff will call you to review pertinent medical details.
Thank you for your continued flexibility. We are here for you now, just as we have been over the past 45 years. Our smiles may be behind our masks—but they are still there!
