The health of our patients, staff and doctors is our priority. We have made several adjustments to our clinic in order to facilitate the appropriate sanitation and disinfection methods required by the Ministry of Health and other regulatory agencies. All visitors to the clinic as asked to wear a mask and sanitize their hands upon entry to the clinic. Anyone entering the clinic will complete a screening. Increased cleaning occurs between each and every patient interaction both in the exam rooms and in the optical and reception areas.
Frames are disinfected routinely and all surfaces are regularly sanitized. We have moved to more paperless and contact-free transactions where possible. All staff and doctors have undergone hours of training on how to appropriately wear personal protective equipment and the appropriate sanitation procedures for their jobs. Appointments will be spaced further apart to facilitate social distancing requirements. You may be asked to wait in your car to minimize contact with others.
We are encouraging patients to schedule appointments for eye care and for their eye wear needs in order to help maintain the appropriate measures. Our practices are guided by government regulations and are reviewed and updated regularly based on the most current recommendations. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
