In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our leadership team is carefully monitoring the situation and considering all recommendations from the CDC, government officials and the American Academy of Ophthalmology. As always, we are committed to doing whatever we can to provide a safe environment for you as well as our staff and doctors.
Safety remains our primary goal. You can expect to see the following systems in place:
- We ask that anyone accompanying you to the office remains outside during your visit unless necessary.
- We ask you to wear a mask during your time at OCV. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided at check-in.
What other safety measures are in place?
- Clean Surfaces: Our team continually cleans high touch surfaces throughout the day. All equipment is carefully cleaned between each patient’s use.
- Hand sanitizing stations are available throughout the office and we encourage patients and staff to frequently practice handwashing.
