Thank you for entrusting Visionary Eye Doctors with your vision care needs. As healthcare providers, we remain open so that we can continue to serve our community during these unprecedented times. We are taking extreme precautions to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. Our goal is to ensure your safety.

To keep you And our staff safe, we made the following changes:

  • We are requiring that all patients wear a mask during their visit. Please don’t forget yours
  • We are monitoring  temperatures of patients and staff prior to entering the office.
  • We reduced and spaced out our schedule to limit the number of people in the office.
  • We are allowing only one guest for patients with special needs or pediatric patients.  Otherwise, we are requiring patients to enter the office alone, companion should wait in the car.
  • We reorganized  waiting rooms for maximum space between patients and abide by social distancing.
  • We increased our frequency of sanitizing and cleansing of our office furniture, surfaces and all medical equipment.
  • We have implemented a strict hand hygiene and surface cleaning protocol in the office.
  • We are offering telemedicine and telehealth appointments for most patients who can’t make it to our offices.
  • We  removed all magazines and coffee stations in our office to reduce the spread of any bacteria or virus.
  • We have 6ft markers throughout the office to promote social distancing.
  • Our staff will be wearing masks and gloves.
  • We offer premobile check in to reduce face-to-face interaction with patients in office and Virtual waiting rooms to reduce the number of people in the office waiting room!

WE ARE READY TO SEE YOU. YOUR EYE HEALTH IS ESSENTIAL AND WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU
