|WE WANT TO KEEP YOU SAFE...
All of us here 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 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.We are spacing 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. If you have people come with you, please ask them to comply with Social Distancing.
7. If you have a Contact Lens Exam, you will receive a trial of contact lens solution to use while in the office, instead of using a large communal bottle.
We are doing what we can to look after your health and your vision, and as always, we appreciate you being our patient.
Contact Lens Wear is Safe, however:
• Proper Hand Washing is Essential.
• Disinfect Contact Lenses.
• Discontinue Lens Wear Only if Sick.
Also remember to:
• Disinfect Your Eyeglasses.

• Mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, and difficulty breathing
• Symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days
• Spreads person to person through small droplets from nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales.
• Can catch the virus by touching objects and surfaces that droplets have landed on and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.
Steps to take to minimize risk
• 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 with a tissue, then throw away the tissue in trash.
• 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.
Even if your illness doesn't seem very bad to you, it could be much more serious for someone who catches your germs.
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.
