We have made some changes to our office protocols and procedures, all of which to keep the health and safety for our staff, doctors, patients and community of utmost concern. We want to address your vision and eye health needs as soon as possible.


WE WANT TO KEEP YOU SAFE... All of us here at sincerely hope that you, your family and friends are all healthy during these stressful times. Our office is open during this time of Covid-19 outbreak, BUT we are taking extra precautions to keep our patients and staff safe.

1.When you come into the office, we are going to ask you to wash your hands. (please don't be offended, we are following CDC guidelines)

2.When we hand you the clipboard and pen, please know that the clipboard has been thoroughly sanitized and the pen is yours to keep. (if you wish not to keep the pen, we will sterilize it for the next patient)

3.There will be no more magazines in the office for the time being. (this will cut down on multiple hands touching and spreading germs.)

4.We will have a bottle of sanitizer and wipes at the front desk. If you should need one, please help yourself.

5.Starting today when we schedule exams, we are going to space out patients as much as possible to minimize the number of people in the office at one time.

6.We ask that you come to your exam by yourself, or at least minimize the number of guests.

7.At this time we advise you to NOT to wear contact lenses to help keep any exposure to a minimum.

8. Please give any frames you've tried on to a staff member to sanitize

EYE EXAM
• Wash hand with soap & water for at least 20 seconds
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people that are sick.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze into a tissue, then throw away.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
• Ensure employees have ample facilities to wash their hands.

PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY
Covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze with your elbow or a tissue will greatly reduce the number of germs that are able to spread to people and objects around you.

SOCIAL DISTANCING
What Is Social Distancing? Social distancing is a way to keep people from interacting closely or frequently enough to spread an infectious disease. Here in the office we're asking you to not sit next to each other to observe Social Distancing. Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations, please be respectful of others boundaries.
