To Our Valued Patients,
We hope you are staying safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. We would like to communicate with you that we are now fully open, as Optometry is considered an essential business (we all need to see and have healthy eyes). We have been keeping abreast of all CDC guidelines as they evolve, and have very specific safety guidelines in place within the office. Everyone has commented on how safe they feel during their visit with us.
Dr. Mark Chung is seeing patients on Monday - Friday from 10:00 to 5:00.
Dr. Irene Yim is seeing patients on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 10:00 to 3:00.
Here is our checklist of our safety guidelines for your perusal:
The front door will be locked at all times. Your temperature will be taken at the door, and hand sanitizer will be provided (you may wash your hands in our bathroom if you prefer). If your temperature reads over 100° with two readings, you will be asked to sit on a bench on the balcony for a few minutes, and we will take it again. If it still reads over 100° at that point, we will respectfully ask you not to enter and to see your primary care physician.
Masks will be required to enter the office. If you refuse to wear one, you will not be allowed to enter. Doctors and Staff are wearing masks, with gloves and face shields for certain tests. Every station, frame, and piece of equipment is sanitized after each patient usage.
Please respect social distancing of 6' with the front staff or if there are other patients in the waiting area. We are trying to limit capacity to only two patients at a time in the front office.
We will be scheduling eye examination appointments every 45 minutes rather than the usual 30 minutes to minimize overlapping. We ask that patients with appointments to enter the office alone, unless they are with a minor or a caregiver. If there is someone accompanying you who is neither of these, they will be asked to wait in their car.
For our loyal patients who have been impacted financially by Covid-19, we are offering courtesy discounts on lensing your frame when you come in for your re-exam.
We would like to thank you in advance for understanding and adhering to the new normal of this office, for the safety and benefit of everyone. If you need to pick up or drop something off at the office, please call us in advance so we can be prepared for your arrival, or your order can be ready to deliver to you at the front door.
Thank you for your patience with our continued safety guidelines. Please stay safe and healthy as we navigate through these times together.
