Dear Patients and valued Clients:

In preparation of your upcoming appointments, we have added additional safety measures to ensure your safety and well-being until further notice:

  • All visitors and patients are required to wear a face covering to their appointment or entering the clinic. You will remove your mask only when having your examination or treatment.
  • All patients will call the office when they arrive for their appointment so that a medical staff member will escort you to a private sanitized room.
  • All employees, visitors and patients are screened daily with health questions and temperature scans by our medical team.
  • Any Brilliant Distinction points should be redeemed prior to your appointment. After all transactions, the credit card terminal will be disinfected.
  • Hand sanitizer and antibacterial soap is available in each examination room, receptionist station, waiting room and restroom.
  • We will be cleaning exam chairs after each patient, all surfaces, ophthalmology lamps, and computer key boards after every patient.
  • If you do not feel well, we will be rescheduling any and all patients who don’t feel their best and/or suspect possible exposure. Please know this is for the safety of other patients and staff.
  • The office will continue to follow its regular disinfecting protocols for the front desk counter, waiting room counters, restrooms and door handles.
  • Our large facility and multiple patient rooms should accommodate social spacing to minimize unnecessary contact.

We will be scheduling patients far enough apart to provide an atmosphere where you will feel that your clinic provider is just there for you. We will be doing our best to practice social distancing. We appreciate your patience and understanding so that we can create a positive environment where you can come to your appointment and feel comfortable.
