During this time of growing concern, we believe it is our role and responsibility to prioritize the health and well-being of our patients and our employees. Like you, we are closely following the news and monitoring the COVID-19 impact on our community. We are committed to continuing to take the necessary and recommended precaution and to stay in communication with you.
We are planning to stay open and be available to our patients. The mission of our office is to ensure the health and safety of our patients, staff and the community we serve. We are taking proactive measures in our office with our staff and patients to keep our office as clean and as safe as possible.
Steps we are taking…
All our employees are following the CDC’s recommended hand washing protocols throughout their shifts, as well as when handling our equipment and objects in the office.
We are requiring all employees and patients who are not feeling well or have any symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath to stay home until they are feeling better, and to follow up with their healthcare provider.
We are spacing our patients out to avoid other patient interaction.
For your convenience, we supply antibacterial/antiviral wipes and hand sanitizer throughout the office.
We are sure to wipe down all our equipment before and after each use, whether it is equipment in the pre-test area or equipment in our exam rooms.
We are wiping down and cleaning all frames before and after trial, along with the frame displays.
Constant disinfecting of all hard surfaces such as counter-tops and door handles.
Social Contact – we are avoiding shaking hands or any physical contact with staff and patients. A simple wave, kind word, or greeting are not only acceptable but preferred by most. Get creative with your kindness when interacting with this flu season.
We are asking that any patients who need to order contacts have them direct shipped to your home. Please feel free to call us ahead of time if you need to pick up any orders or trial contacts or glasses, we are happy to deliver them out to your car.
We will continue to post updates to our Facebook page, so please like/follow us there!
Thank you for your flexibility and continued support.
