As of 04/27/2020, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced new directives aimed at slowly restoring business activity in the state while continuing to adhere to important safety guidelines with respect to the COVID-19 crisis.
As your eye care provider, we are paying very close attention to the fast-changing nature of Coronavirus Covid-19 and the public health concerns with the opening of our economy.
We are very aware of the concern patients have when considering the possible spread of Covid-19 nationwide and in our community. It is crucial for us to connect directly with YOU to outline the steps we are taking to keep you and our staff safe.
Per the CDC clinic preparedness guidance, we are wiping all surfaces and equipment more frequently than recommended: clinic equipment, phones, writing utensils, counters, desks, keyboards, display frames, and any commonly used and/or touched surfaces. We have always stressed the importance of following eye care safety precautions with our team. Those precautions such as hand washing, wearing gloves while working with contact lenses, sneezing into your elbow, and staying home when you are sick have always been our policy.
As of today, our office remains open for urgent/medical office visits. We will limit the number of routine exams by reducing the number of patients seen per day in order to continue to adhere to social distancing practices.
We are asking all patients to abide by the following:
- Wear a mask while in our office
- Wash your hands prior to entering and leaving our clinic
- Ask patient's guests to remain outside the facility unless they are a caretaker or guardian
