Covid-19 Info

With the recent extension of Illinois Governor Pritzker's "stay at Home Order" announced on April 23, 2020, we wanted to send an update to our patients on how this affects our practice. Our office is NOW OPEN, but we have implemented screening measures and safety precautions in order to protect the health and safety of our patients, staff and community.  

Per the Governor's Executive order, you must wear a mask when you are in public and will need to have one on when entering our office. Prior to entering our facility, a member of our team will take your temperature, and ask you a series of COVID-19 questions adapted from the CDC. Please note, that guests and family members are asked to stay in their vehicles to further our efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect our staff and patients.

During the current COVID-19 crisis, please consider the CDC's recommended precautions before, during and after your visit:

  • Reschedule your appointment if you are sick or have been exposed to COVID-19.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose,  and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

In addition to implementing safety measures for our patients, we will also be implementing screening protocols for our staff. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 crisis and are following the guidance and expertise of the Centers for Disease Control and Infection (CDC), the state and local public health officials, the Illinois Optometric Association (IOA) and the American Optometric Association (AOA).

If you need to reschedule an appointment or have further questions, please contact our office.

Thank you for your patience with us during this time.
