At Tozer Eye Center patient safety is our top concern. This is especially true during the current coronavirus pandemic. For this reason, based on recommendations from the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the governor’s office and federal agencies we are scheduling patients only for urgent care visits and emergency surgery at this time. We are rescheduling all routine eye exams and elective surgeries including cataract surgery for a later date. Routine selection and fitting of glasses will be postponed. If the patient has lost their only pair of glasses, please call the optical shop and a replacement can be ordered and mailed out without visiting the optical shop. Contact lenses can also be mailed to the patient.
We are taking special precautions for those patients we do see. We are checking the temperature of everyone, including the staff and doctors, who enters the office. Each patient will be asked a series of screening questions to determine if they might pose a potential risk of infection to other patients or the staff. We are asking that anyone who accompanies a patient wait outside in their car. Patients may also elect to wait in their car and be contacted when we are ready to bring them to the examining room. All surfaces in the waiting room will be cleaned frequently. We have removed many chairs in the waiting room and spaced the remaining chairs appropriately. The exam rooms will be cleaned after every patient. The doctors and staff are wearing masks and gloves at all times when appropriate.
Signs or symptoms for which you might call the office include:
If you feel you have an urgent problem, even if not mentioned above, please call the office at (480) 947-4493. We are spacing out the visits to avoid overcrowding the office and minimize exposure to our staff and patients.
We appreciate your understanding during this difficult, challenging time.
