Vision Source Eyecare considers the health, safety, and well-being of our patients, team members, and communities to be our top priority.
We understand the concern and uncertainty that our patients may be experiencing surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and are committed to being responsive to the needs of our patients and employees as the situation evolves.
Based on current guidance and our own standards and practices, we remain open and ready to provide exceptional patient care experiences.
Patients With Upcoming Appointments
If you or any members of your household have any symptoms of illness listed below, or have been exposed to illness, in the past 2 weeks we MUST reschedule your appointment for a future date.
- Sore throat
- Runny nose
We ask that you reschedule your appointment by calling or messaging your local Vision Source office. We will be screening every patient at check in to identify and limit potential exposure to COVID-19 in our offices.
How Is Vision Source Preparing For COVID-19?
We want to make you aware of the safety measures we are taking to prevent the spread of infectious diseases in our offices. The safety and well being of our patients' overall health as well as their eye health is our number one priority. Accordingly, we have expanded our already stringent disinfecting protocols and our staff has undergone additional training in disinfecting procedures.
Below are just a few added precautions we are taking in the coming weeks:
- We are dramatically reducing the number of surfaces and equipment you will come in contact with during your exam.
- At check-in, patients will receive a sterilized pen and sterilized clipboard to complete paperwork.
- Contact lens patients will receive a sterile, unopened bottle of solution and a case for their personal use in the office. They may take this bottle and case home.
- All frames in our optical are disinfected after being touched.
- All books, magazines, and refreshments have been temporarily removed from our waiting area.
In addition, please know that every exam room, testing room, and surface you encounter in our office is being meticulously disinfected between every patient, per our rigorous office standards. As always, we are offering hand sanitizer and multiple hand-washing stations to our patients throughout our office.
We will be updating our patients as new details become available. If you have questions or concerns about this information, please reach out to us.
We hope to continue to deliver both routine and emergency eye services to our patients in the safest way possible in the coming days and weeks and will continue to monitor this ever-evolving situation. Thank you for your understanding, help, and cooperation! Stay well and see clearly!
