New Normal Covid Precision Eye Care Moving Forward With Covid-19

Beginning May 1, we will be slowly resuming routine care at Precision Eye Care.  However, we recognize that we cannot simply return to how things were 3 or 4 months ago, as if nothing happened.  We will be continuing safety measures recommended by the CDC and American Optometric Association.  These include:

1. Wearing Masks

We STRONGLY recommend that you wear a mask in our office.  Everyone on our team will be wearing masks.  Even if you just have a cloth mask, it will help.  If you do not have one, we will provide a single-use mask for you.  To preserve our supply, we do ask that if you have one available to you, to use it.

2. Illness

If you have been sick or have a fever, or if anyone in your household is sick or has a fever, we will insist that you reschedule.

3. Curbside Pickup

We will be continuing curbside pickup of glasses and contact lenses for anyone who prefers!  Just give us a call when you get here and we will bring them out to you.

4. Scheduling

We will be spacing out our schedule to ensure there is plenty of time for sanitizing between patients.  We strongly encourage you to utilize our online portal to complete your paperwork securely before arriving at our office.  This will minimize your wait and your overall time in our office.  Because we are seeing fewer patients to allow for this, it is vital that you contact us in advance whenever possible should you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment.

5. Guests

Only the patient will be allowed into the office, unless the patient is a minor or requires a caregiver.  In that instance, we will limit it to one person accompanying the patient.  If you are a parent who will need to bring more than one child into the office, we understand that this sometimes cannot be avoided and will do our best to accomodate you.

6. Keeping Count

We will be keeping close watch on the number of people in our office.  Please understand that if there are too many, we may ask you to return to you car and be called in.

7.  Contact Lenses

Along with other colleagues, we have been extending contact lens prescriptions for a few months through all of this.  These extensions may continue be granted on a case by case basis, especially for our high risk patients.  We will be balancing this with the need to ensure your eyes remain healthy.

8. At Risk Patients

We are very sensitive to the fact that this is still an uncertain time.  If you are an at risk patient based on age, immune status, etc, but feel you need to be seen- please alert our staff to your concerns.  We will do our very best to ensure that all appropriate safeguards are in place, and schedule you at a time when no other patients are there.

 

We look forward to seeing you!
