Many patients are nervous or apprehensive about having eye surgery, yet look forward and are excited for the outcome, especially improved vision and health. Understandably, the COVID-19 pandemic introduces a new element to the equation, making people even more uneasy because they are concerned about contracting the novel coronavirus and not sure what to expect at the surgery center. As eye doctors, our goal is to provide our patients the best eye care possible to preserve vision and optimize health. We also want to alleviate your fears as much as possible, so that you feel safe and comfortable at the surgery center.
Safety and sterility of the surgery center facilities and interactions have always and continues to be a priority to ensure the highest possible patient safety. Due to the unique nature of COVID-19, below are the changes you will notice at the surgery center to further maximize safety.
- Masks on all patients and staff at all times
- Patients family will be asked to wait in their vehicles instead of the waiting room
- Once surgery is completed, patients will be escorted to their family members rather than meeting in the recovery area
