WE HAVE OPENED
OUR DOORS AGAIN
Well, kind of. Our doors are locked, and entry is by appointment only.
We have been allowed to resume routine care for our patients, but with very strict directives from our College of Optometrists of Ontario. This has limited the number of patients that the doctors are able to examine to about 40% of how many they were able to see pre-COVID-19. As a result, we are making an attempt to address those patients who need us the most. Our College has recommended that we use telemedicine wherever possible, so we are examining many patients by phone and telemedicine appointments on doxy.me.
We are excited to be able to care for our patients again, and you will undoubtedly notice that we are adhering to the most stringent disinfection protocols to keep both patients and staff safe. We ask for your patience during these trying times, and assure you that we are trying our best to accommodate all of our existing patients as well as accepting new patients that are in need of eye care.
