Your Pediatric Eye and Adult Strabismus care during the COVID-19 outbreak

Patient precautions

  • Only one person may accompany any patient to their appointment, to minimize exposure. Guardians and children 5 years of age and older are required to wear a mask during their entire visit.

  • We will take your temperature on arrival – any family with a member who has a fever will be rescheduled at least 14 days from that date.

  • No family member or patient with any respiratory symptoms (cough, sneezing) should come for an appointment.  If you arrive with an active cough you will be rescheduled at least 10 days from that date.

  • If you plan to travel internationally please ensure that your appointment is scheduled for at least seven days after your return

  • If anyone in your home has respiratory symptoms or fever, you will need to reschedule for at least 10 days in the future.

  • Please use the hand sanitizer provided.


Clinic precautions

  • We have removed all toys from the waiting room and clinic rooms to reduce risk of cross contamination.

  • We are sanitizing all surfaces in clinic rooms between each patient.

  • In order to try and keep the waiting room as uncrowded as possible:

    • We have reduced our schedule capacity.

    • When possible we are trying to keep patients in clinic rooms during the dilation process but in certain circumstances, and with the improving weather, we may encourage you to take a walk or relax in your car before returning to our office to complete your exam.
