New Safety Protocols

Our community has been through a lot over the past few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming a ‘new-normal’ soon. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, which you may have seen during previous visits to our office. Our sterilization processes are designed so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable. We want to provide you with more information about the procedures we follow in our practice, to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office sterilization and safety control recommendations are made by the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies closely so that we remain up to date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our sterilization and safety procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

If you have any questions about these new safety measures, please give us a call at (858) 455-6800.

Thank you for your patience and for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and have made these changes to keep you, our team, and your family safe. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
