COVID-related changes at Wooster Eye Center
AT WEC, we take the safety of our patients and staff seriously, so like the rest of the world, we have had to make substantial changes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for your understanding, courtesy, and patience as we work through this challenging time together!
Here's what's happening at Wooster Eye Center:
We are scheduling appointments in the Wooster and Millersburg offices, and our surgery center is open. If you are in need of a routine eye exam, your wait for an appointment may be longer than usual. With our physical distancing and cleaning protocols, we have fewer appointments available than usual, and we are prioritizing patients with medical eye problems. Also, we are not able to fit new contact lens patients at this time. We can, however, continue to serve existing contact lens patients. Our optical shop is also open. However, we are trying to minimize the number of people in the optical department. Usually, we can accommodate patients after their exam, but at times you may be asked to wait a few minutes or even return at a scheduled time. If you know that you need new glasses please be sure to mention that need when you schedule your appointment so that we can be ready for you.
We do require that you wear a mask in the office and that you come by yourself unless you need assistance or are a minor. We also ask that you reschedule if you are sick with a fever or if you have had recent contact with anyone known or suspected to have COVID. If you have any questions about our new policies or procedures, then please call, and we will be happy to assist you.
Once in the office, you will notice many COVID-related changes, including the following: modified patient scheduling to minimize people in the waiting areas, transparent barriers at the reception counter, COVID questionnaires for every patient, temperature checks for anyone entering beyond the waiting room. Some of our changes, however, may not be as noticeable, such as enhanced cleaning protocols for exam rooms between each patient and additional slit lamp barriers between patients and doctors. And yes, all of our staff are required to wear masks.
Our goal is to reduce COVID risk for everyone in the office. We thank you for working with us toward that goal, and we thank you also for your patience!
