How are we keeping you safe during your visit? November Update.
Children's Eye Care is open for both routine and medical visits. Please call if you have a concern and we'll guide you through the process. If appropriate, a Telehealth visit (see blog post below) may fit your situation better than an in-person visit.
We are practicing social distancing in the office. Our waiting spaces have clusters of chairs and plexiglass barriers. Those with a scheduled visit with one of our doctors will be taken directly back to an examination room, and you can expect to spend minimal time in public waiting areas. If you or your child are immunocompromised, let our staff know and we'll make sure you spend your entire visit in one room. Our play area and movie room remain closed until social distancing is no longer required.
If you have an appointment, you do not need a separate appointment to see the optician for glasses. If you don't have an appointment, you may still be able to see an optician, but you need to make an appointment with optical to do so. Currently, we are down to a single optician. We are looking for a second, but we ask for your patience in the meantime as our optician works as hard as she can to help as many as possible.
Please note, we are universally masking, which means we would like you and your children over 3 years of age to wear a cloth mask to the office. MASKS ARE REQUIRED AND YOU WILL NOT BE SEEN WITHOUT ONE. We will be happy to provide you with a mask if needed.
We ask that you follow the one parent, one child rule. Please leave relatives and siblings at home. With our portal, the parent who stays home may view your child's records at any time, and we are happy to answer questions by phone or by a virtual Telehealth visit.
Each room is disinfected between visits. All seating and high-touch surfaces are sanitized between each patient. We've limited toys and books in the rooms (feel free to bring some from home), and these are also sanitized between visits. Our staff and providers will either hand sanitize or wash hands at the start of each visit (often at the end, too). We also encourage you to wash your hands regularly, and to take advantage of the sinks for washing and hand sanitizer found throughout the office.
