Our team at Dr. Tavel is closely monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak while figuring out ways to keep our patients and staff safe. As part of our commitment to your health and safety, we have updated our Eyes On Safety guidelines.
We know many have questions about the coronavirus and how it may impact your daily life, including future eye exams. We sat down with one of our optometrists, Dr. Judy Walrath, OD with some frequently asked questions and how COVID-19 affects your vision care.
We are reducing the number of exams scheduled and limiting the number of people in the office to comply with social distancing guidelines. If you’re coming in for an exam, please come alone. We are asking for non-patients to wait outside the office or in the car unless you’re a parent or guardian accompanying a minor.
Doctors and staff will be required to wear masks 100% of the time when in our office, and we will be providing patients a mask if they do not have one. Doctors will be wearing gloves when they feel it is necessary to touch the patients and exposing themselves to fluids from the patient’s eyes.
We will be updating our website and social media accounts for any store hours changes, CDC, or government announcements, as well as coronavirus eye safety tips. We are committed to providing the best care to you and will continue to give you the best guidance we can.
If you have any questions about your upcoming appointment, or you need to reschedule you can chat with our team online at drtavel.com, or call us 1-844-GOTAVEL.
