Safe Eye Care

SAFETY PROTOCOLS – UPDATED 10/6/2020

As a healthcare organization, the health of our patients, doctors, and associates is our top priority as we reopen to service your needs. As a result, we wanted to take the time to remind you of the precautions we are taking to ensure Central Texas Eye Center Employees and Patients are safe.

 

What We Ask of You:

  • If you are exhibiting signs of COVID-19 or if you believe you have been in contact with someone who may have been exposed, we ask you to reschedule your exam.
  • Please come to your appointment by yourself or limit who comes with you to one person so we can adhere to CDC social distancing guidelines. 
  • If you need someone to bring you to your appointment, we ask that they wait outside or in their vehicle.
  • Upon your arrival, we are conducting temperature checks.  
  • Wear a face mask to your appointment. We’ll be wearing one too!

What We Are Doing to Minimize Your Risk:

Limiting Exams Per Hour

We are allowing a minimal amount of patients into the building in order to allow for CDC distancing guidelines and thorough cleaning after each exam.

Temperature Check Upon Arrival

We will utilize a contactless thermometer to take temperatures of everyone who enters the location and will ask anyone with a fever to reschedule.

Equipment & Room Cleaning

This is something we do anyway, but we want you to know that all equipment and surfaces will be cleaned after each exam.

Social Distancing

We ask associates and patients to observe 6 feet social distancing whenever possible.

Patient Intake Forms

In most cases, Patient Intake Forms paperwork will be emailed to patients before their appointment and should be complete prior to arrival. Patient Forms are also available on our website.

Protective Equipment & Cleaning Supplies

Masks and gloves have been secured for our doctors and associates. Patients will be supplied with a pair of gloves for frame selection. Disinfectant wipes are available as well.

Hand Hygiene

Our associates will wash their hands for 20 seconds after every patient interaction. Hand sanitizer will be available for patients.

We will continue to monitor CDC guidelines and make changes as appropriate.
