COVID-19 Update

Edmonds Vision Center has made some changes to our office to make your eye exam safe and efficient.

Setting up the Clinic

☐ We have installed plexiglass shields at the front desk and in the optical gallery.

☐ We have added medical grade air filtration systems in the exam rooms and large open areas to clean the air we breath.

☐ We have removed reception area chairs and all magazines.

☐ We installed a sanitization station at the entrance with masks and non-contact thermometer.

☐ We have installed protective guards on the exam room equipment as well as automatic hand sanitization units in every room.

☐ All eyewear has been cleaned and opticians will provide individualized styling to all guests.

☐ We have appropriate PPE, or personal protection equipment, and sanitization protocols in place to keep our clinic clean and healthy.

Managing Your time in the office

☐ We have established new routines to improve efficiency in the office. All visits to our office will be appointed, no walk ins permitted.

☐ Streamlined our exam protocols:

Online intake forms.

Phone call interview done prior to your eye exam.

No waiting, we will let you in to the office when it is time for your appointment.

OPTOS retinal imaging will be recommended to lessen your chance of needing dilation.

Optical interview done prior to visit to optical will allow us to find your perfect eyewear quicker.

Curbside delivery of your eyewear or contacts.

Expanded office hours to accommodate more routine exam appointments.

Longer appointment times with no overlap with other patients to allow for social distancing.

☐ Telemedicine appointments will be available for emergencies, thereby reducing in office visits to a minimum.

Guidance and Training

☐ We are following the guidance of the CDC and the Washington Department of Health to establish our procedures including suggested PPE for health care providers.

☐ Immediately after every patient we will clean every room and piece of equipment before the next person arrives using approved disinfectants.

☐ Per the recommendations of Washington Department of Health, all staff and patients must wear masks unless contraindicated.

☐ Included in our intake protocol is a COVID-19 symptom interview, temperature screening and hand cleaning. All guests will be logged for social tracing.

☐ We have done extensive training of staff of all protocols and will update our standards as the situation requires.

Updated Covid-19 Policies as of 05/21/2021

As COVID-19 information continues to change through updates from the CDC and the State of Washington Health Department, we feel a need to maintain a safety structure for those patients who have not been vaccinated as well as those that have. Because we are a medical office, we feel there is a strong need to ensure that everyone feels safe in this environment.

In an effort to maintain social distancing and patient safety, we ask the following:

*Please do not bring any family or friends with you during your appointment.

*If you need a driver, we ask that they wait in your vehicle or enjoy downtown shopping.

*For pediatric exams, we ask only one parent to come with the child or children if scheduled at similar times.

*Please advise us of any schedule changes as soon as possible. If you need to cancel, please do so with 24 business hours.

*Optos retinal scans are highly recommended at this time. This allows us to evaluate your ocular health with more distance. Dilation drops may not be needed at your visit when using this technology. Please consider this elective service for your next comprehensive exam.

*Eyewear visits in the optical department are currently by appointment only. This is to maintain distance and allow for proper cleaning between patients. Our skilled opticians will bring you eyewear to fit your style, desires and needs. We ask that you do not browse on your own.

*Feel comfortable trying on the frames the opticians bring you as each frame has been thoroughly cleaned.

*Safety comes first! Patients and staff will be required to wear masks. Screening for illness including temperature checks and verbal health questions will be maintained at this time.

*Appointed times keep us on schedule. Please fill out your paperwork online with the assistance of IntakeQ prior to your visit. Call us when you are at the door and we can get started!

Our mission at Edmonds Vision Center is to provide the highest standard of care to individuals of all ages, with the latest technology and outstanding customer service. You and your entire family are welcome at Edmonds Vision Center. We value your eye health!
