Effective September, 2021
Our office has always maintained high sanitary conditions. Current COVID concerns including the variants will continue our commitments in keeping our patients and teams safe and healthy.
With the current conditions, all patients and office staff will continue to wear masks, wash hands and maintain social distancing as possible in our office.
In January 2021, a MERV 16 filtration system was added to our ventilation system. This filters 99% of particles down to 0.3 microns (smaller than the Coronavirus). We purchased an advanced UV cleaner for our eyewear selection process. Several chairs were re-upholstered from cloth to a cleanable material in waiting areas. Contact lenses are still shipped from our supplier directly to patient homes to decrease the number of patients in our office. Exam room surfaces, exam equipment, and our dispensing tables and chairs, are disinfected frequently.
Our appointment times will continue to be spaced out as possible to reduce the number of patients in our office at one time. Emergency situations can occur, increasing numbers.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 within 10 days prior to your appointment, or been diagnosed with COVID-19, please call ahead and reschedule your appointment. If you have had close contact with someone with suspected or confirmed COVID infection within 14 days, please call to reschedule your appointment.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding of minimizing our risks for all!
