COVID-19 Update from Us at Vision Source Coppell
I suspect many of you are as amazed by everything going on around us as we are. Our plan is to remain open and take care of you the best we can. In the meantime, we want to share some additional measures we have put in place to further protect our patients’ and staff’s health and safety.
As a leading health care office, it is critical for us to take the highest care of our patients’ health. It is also very important that we continue to do so as best we can in a healthy and safe environment. To do this we ask our patients to follow the national health care CDC guidelines and if you are feeling sick, have fever, chills, sweats cough or sore throat, or if you have traveled out of the country in the last month, or been around anyone with COVID-19, we ask you to stay home and reschedule your appointment.
If you have an eye infection or eye emergency then please call our office and one of our doctors will call you back to determine the best way to take care of you. Also, if you are unable to come into the office, we can mail prescription eyeglasses and/or contact lenses to you.
Let us also reassure you we at Vision Source Coppell/Elliott Eye Associates have always carefully disinfected our equipment before or after each use and repeatedly cleaned our office to maintain a safe and healthy environment. With this outbreak we have further expanded our office protocols and increased the frequency of cleaning of all patient contact areas.
We encourage each member of our patient family to follow these precautionary measures in an effort to remain healthy and prevent the spread of any potential germs.
1) Practice “Social Distancing” and avoid close contact with anyone who is sick
2) Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
3) Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
4) Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth to prevent the spread of germs
5) Stay home when you have any symptoms or are sick, except to get medical care.
6) Cover your cough as best you can to avoid the spread of germs.
We want to reassure you we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation to protect our patients’ health. We will also continue to update you as more pertinent information and guidelines are developed. In the meantime, please call if you have any questions or concerns
