Reopening After COVID-19
Beginning Monday May 11, 2020, Carolina Eye Care will reopen to the public for business. During the last five weeks, we were available to see emergency and medically necessary visits, but the doors remained locked between scheduled visits. But while we move towards a return to normalcy, let us not forget that we are not finished with COVID-19 just yet.
There is still a real concern for transmission of this virus, and our office intends to remain vigilant in our efforts to reduce this risk. Upon reopening, you can expect the following from our office:
We will see routine eye examinations once per hour as compared to our regular schedule of seeing two patients per hour. This ensures better isolation between patients. This will likely lead to longer wait times for appointments. Please be patient with us.
Between each visit, we will disinfect every surface and piece of equipment you may encounter. As a matter of practice, we have always disinfected equipment, but during this time this will extend to counter tops and chair surfaces. We have also removed all magazines from our waiting room, and will ask you to complete necessary forms on paper instead of our iPad system.
Every patient will have their temperature taken upon entry, as will our staff members. All staff members and patients will be offered a face mask and gloves (if they don't have their own). While these will be considered optional, our staff members will wear this PPE at any patient's request.
If you remain concerned about social contact, Carolina Eye Care can arrange for prescription extensions and/or Telemedicine appointments (when appropriate) to assist with your eye care needs. Contact our office for details.
There's no doubt that COVID-19 has affected everyone, but with time and vigilance we can get past this. Carolina Eye Care is here for all your eye and vision care needs, so please don't hesitate to call our office with any questions or concerns.
