COVID-19 Precautions

To our patients:

As we gradually reopen our practice, we are making every effort to create a safe environment for patients and staff.

Respiratory droplets, from talking, have been shown to linger in the air for 8 to 14 minutes! See the article below. This is why we are enforcing the following:

-All patients must come in wearing a mask or face covering! Dr. Seidman and our staff will also be wearing masks. -Breath shields have been placed on our slit lamps. -Please refrain from talking while Dr. Seidman is performing an exam or procedure. She will speak to you once she completes her exam and a safe distance of 6 feet is attained. -Please limit talking at the reception desk and in the waiting room. -We will only be scheduling 2 patients per hours, in order to maintain social distancing. -Patients may wait outside until they are called in for their visit. -If patients are being dilated, they may take a walk outside while waiting for the drops to work (typically 20-30 min). -We will keep our windows open as the weather permits. Please call our office ahead of your appointment with any additional questions/concerns you may have. We thank you for your cooperation and helping us to keep our community safe.
