Waiting Rooms – All waiting room chairs are spread out at least 6 feet apart.
Exam Rooms: All testing room and exam room surfaces, instruments and computers are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after each patient.Your eye exam typically involves the use of a slit lamp biomicroscope. We have installed additional plastic barriers on the slit lamps to prevent spraying of tiny moisture particles which could lead to infection. To further avoid infection, we ask that you do not speak when positioned behind the slit lamp. Our doctors will be limiting their speaking as well. They will move far back and create a safe distance to speak about your eyes and their recommendations.When your exam is complete, the receptionist will conclude your discharge process via intercom. If needed, you will be given a follow-up appointment. You will then be escorted out of the office.
TeleEyeHealth & Virtual LASIK Consults – we are continuing with convenient Telemedicine appointments for both refractive and medical patients who prefer to be seen from the comfort of their homes.
