Let me begin by saying a huge THANK YOU to all of our amazing patients for your patience and support during this pandemic.
We continue to follow CDC guidelines and have implemented additional protocols for sanitizing the office. We will do our best to protect our patients and staff as we proudly serve your eye care needs. Please read over the following list of protocols before your visit to our office to avoid any surprises and to ensure that we are meeting safety expectations for you and our staff.
If you have any symptoms such as fever, breathing problems, body aches, cough etc., we will be happy to reschedule your appointment for another time. If you or your family members have traveled out of the country within the last 14 days, we will need to reschedule your appointment for a couple of weeks out. If you or your family members believe you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 10 days, we will need to reschedule your appointment.
Up until now, we have been taking body temperatures upon entrance, however, with the outside temperatures getting hotter, we feel as though we are getting many false readings. Now we are asking that you take your own temperature at home before your visit. We will only take your temperature if you are showing any COVID symptoms.
In accordance with Governor Cooper's mandate, please bring a mask to wear while inside the building. If you are unable to wear a mask, we have special appointment times set aside to accomodate you. Please ask when making your appointment.
As part of our check-in procedure, we will provide a COVID questionnaire to aid in monitoring symptoms that may indicate any potential risk of infection. Please be aware that positive responses to these symptoms may cause us to reschedule your exam for a later time.
We ask that you please do not bring any unnecessary visitors with you to your appointment; however one parent may enter with a child. Please do not bring children who do not have an appointment. In addition, we are not scheduling multiple family members together at this time. While we appreciate your compliance with CDC guidelines, it does cause a large gap in our schedule when families have to cancel.
Again, we are thankful for all of you and we pray for your family’s health during this very unusual time in our lives.
