Restore Eye Care Safe Approach to Eye Care Services
Eye Care During the COVID-19 Crisis
WE ARE OPEN
The past few months have been a challenge as we navigate living through this COVID-19 Crisis. It has meant separation from family and friends, restrictions from normal activities, and changes in carefully made plans. For Restore Eye Care & Eye Gym it has meant a pause in our regular services, to keep our patients, staff and community safe.
We have adapted our office procedures as well; installing sneeze guards, providing personal protective equipment for our staff, and limiting visitors in our practice to allow for social distancing. While we always maintained a clean office space, we are going to extra means to sanitize exam rooms, equipment, eyewear, and chairs, between each patient. Common areas will be sanitized throughout the day. We also went took the extra step with EverPure, to help keep our office space rid of coronavirus and other microbes.
EverPure is an FDA approved treatment, safe for people and the environment, but deadly for viruses.
