COVID-19 Safety Guidelines
The safety of our patients and staff is paramount. We have significantly limited our schedule capacity in order to reduce exposure and to allow for necessary sterilization. Until the threat of COVID-19 is significantly reduced, the following measures will remain in place:
- Anyone who enters the office must wear a mask. If you do not have one, please call the office and one can be brought out to you.
- Patient companions will be allowed only if their assistance is necessary during the exam.
- Patients will be seen by appointment only.
- Temperatures will be checked for patients and staff each day.
- Commonly touched surfaces such as door handles and counters will be sanitized at the beginning and end of each business day and frequently throughout each day.
- Exam equipment and surfaces will be sanitized before and after each patient use.
- Sample frames will be sanitized each time they are handled or tried on.
- Social distancing will be practiced wherever possible.
- Anyone who could answer “yes” to the following questions will be asked not to enter the office.
- Have you traveled outside the country within the past two weeks?
- Have you, a coworker, or a family member been diagnosed with COVID-19 or experienced flu-like symptoms within the past two weeks? Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing, chills, acute loss of sense of smell/taste, and muscle pain.
- Other than healthcare professionals working in patient care, are you currently caring for anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19?
Getting the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses is an important part of good eye care. But seeing clearly is just one part of your overall eye health. It’s important to have regular eye exams with an optometrist whether or not you wear eyeglasses or contacts, and even if your vision is sharp.
The eye doctors at EyeCare of Vermont believe in looking at the big picture when it comes to your eye health, so we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history and your vision needs. Doctors Grayson, Eriksson, Cote, Phillip, Busier and Patterson know that getting the right prescription involves balancing several factors, including clear eyesight, visual efficiency and your ability to process visual information seamlessly. Whether you need a routine eye examination, an eyeglasses fitting or treatment for eye disease (such as glaucoma or macular degeneration) or eye surgery (such as LASIK or cataract surgery), our optometrists will provide you with the best care, advice, options and follow up.
With offices in Burlington and Essex Junction, EyeCare of Vermont has been serving Chittenden County of Vermont. Schedule an appointment with an optometrist to see how we can help you get the best prescription for your eyes.
