COVID-19 Office Protocol
At Eyeland Vision caring for our patients, staff, and community is our primary concern. Our office will be open again on Monday May 4th. We will have limited appointment times and strict guidelines to keep doctors, patients, and staff safe and healthy. We would like all our patients to know what to expect at their appointment during this pandemic.
Precautions Our Eye Clinic Is Taking to Limit COVID-19: We employ a strict office policy that mandates that all eye doctors, opticians, office staff, and patients not enter if they are feeling unwell or have a fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath, or have been exposed to a known case of COVID-19.
Please allow 90 minutes for this visit. All patients, staff and doctors will be required to wear a face mask to the office. We will be utilizing a paperless system whenever and as much as possible.

Upon arrival for your appointment, we are asking all patients to please wait in their vehicle for a staff member to greet you. We will be taking temperatures on all patients at that time. Anyone that has a temperature of 100.4 or higher, will be kindly asked to reschedule for another time. Our staff may ask you to wait outside rather than in the waiting area in order to protect yourself and others from any circulating germs. Only the patient with the appointment will be permitted into the office, unless that patient is a minor or requires assistance. Upon entering the building all patients will be wearing a mask and will be taken to wash their hands.
During your eye exam: The doctor may use a special plastic barrier called a slit-lamp breath shield to block the exchange of breath between patient and doctor. The doctor will wait for your slit-lamp eye exam to be over before speaking with you or answering any questions you may have.
• We disinfect all equipment and patient contact surfaces before and after every use.
• We disinfect all surfaces and equipment (front desk counters, telephones, pens, door handles, waiting room chairs).
• All staff members wash their hands before and after contact with each patient and throughout the day.
If we don’t shake hands with our patients during this time, please don’t take it personally.
Once your exam is complete we will have you visit our optical team. In order to follow rules of social distancing and reduce the spread of the virus our opticians will bring frames to you. Please send in your online frame wish list as stated above so we can have your eyewear choices ready and available for you.
• All frames that have come into contact with patients will be cleaned with antibacterial soap and hot water.
Once your glasses order arrives at our office you will receive a text message for curbside pick up. All contact lens orders will be shipped directly to you.
