COVID-19 Update

How We’re Serving Our Community

Woman wearing a mask giving a thumbs up New York Ophthalmology has been committed since our founding to keeping our patients healthy and seeing clearly. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve worked diligently to deliver our eye care and eye surgeries with the empathy, expertise, and caution you deserve.

In line with that ongoing mission, and in light of a recent increase in Delta variant cases, we are updating our steps to keep our offices safe, clean, and operational so that you can continue to get the quality eye care you need. We’re grateful for the trust you place in us and will continue to earn that trust every single day.

How We’re Keeping You Safe

We’re fully dedicated to keeping you safe, and that’s meant taking steps in each of our offices to promote sanitization, social distancing, and other measures. These include:

  • Requiring masks inside our facilities for all patients and staff
  • Taking everyone’s temperature prior to coming in for their appointment
  • Implementing a pre-visit questionnaire
  • Requiring employee wellness checks before coming in to work
  • Banning eating or drinking in the waiting room or office
  • Thoroughly cleaning our equipment and exam rooms between patient visits
  • Ensuring that every member of our team is fully vaccinated

If you have any questions about these policies, or would like to request further accommodations for your visit, please give us a call prior to your appointment.

What to Expect at Your Appointment

Man getting his temperature checkedWe want you to be able to focus on your visit and eye health while you’re here, without worrying about any surprises. You’ll receive the same high-quality eye care from us as always, but we’ll be doing a couple of things differently to ensure everyone’s safety.

When you arrive for your appointment, you’ll have your temperature taken, and you’ll be asked to fill out a brief questionnaire that asks about your health and symptoms. We’re requiring that people wear face masks in our offices, and we ask that you maintain social distancing except as required for medical testing. Please refrain from eating or drinking in our office as well.

We know as well as anyone that New Yorkers are resilient, and we have full confidence that we’ll get through this together. Once again, we thank you for your continued support, and we’ll continue to be here for your eye care. We hope to see you soon.
