Revised COVID-19 Protocol

August 1, 2021

Dear Patients,

In line with CDC recommendations, we have modified some of our COVID-19 protocols. Our goal is to continue to provide a safe environment for staff and patients while in our office. Please read below to understand what we will be doing in the office, and what we are asking you to do to ensure the best experience.

Scheduling:
• We will continue to have a modified schedule in order to allow for proper disinfection of exam rooms, testing equipment and surfaces throughout the office between patient encounters. This does put appointments at a premium, and we ask that you notify us as soon as possible if you are unable to keep an appointment, so that we can offer that time to another patient.
• If you are immunocompromised or have other cause for increased concern about contracting COVID, please let us know. We can schedule you for the first appointment of the day, before other people arrive.
• All visits will continue to be by appointment, including optical services that were previously done on a walk-in basis (eyeglass pick-ups, adjustments, repairs).
Prior to your appointment:
• We will ask you to fill out your ocular, medical, and family history online before your appointment. This will make your visit more efficient and will minimize the amount of time you need to spend in the office. You will be emailed a link to our online forms shortly after booking your visit. Please email appointments@somerseteyecare.com or text 7326586765 if you have not received a link to your online forms.
