The doctors of Greenwich Ophthalmology want to inform their patients that during this time of coronavirus, we are taking all of the necessary protocols and safety measures to keep patients, staff and doctors safe while continuing to provide the highest quality medical care.

The following protocols are in place upon entering our office:

  • All patients are required to wear a mask upon entering our office (a mask will be provided if necessary).
  • Each individual entering the building will have their temperature taken, be given hand sanitizer and will be asked questions about potential COVID-19 symptoms or if you have been in contact with an individual with COVID-19. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher, a cough or if in contact with a COVID-19 patient must reschedule at least two weeks beyond the canceled appointment date. In addition, patients will also be asked if they have traveled to a “hot spot” state as deemed by the State of Connecticut which requires a mandatory 10-day quarantine before a patient can be seen at our practice.
  • The number of patients waiting in common areas has been reduced to ensure social distancing.
  • Patients are asked to come alone to their appointment unless they require assistance or accompanying a minor. Once a patient is checked in, they have the option to wait in our office or to wait in their car. Patients will be called by a staff member when a technician is ready to screen them.
  • All staff and doctors will be wearing the appropriate PPE equipment.
  • Each testing area, all testing equipment and instruments and exam rooms are thoroughly sanitized after each patient’s use. 
  • Regular sanitizing of regular touchpoints such as doorknobs, chairs, countertops, pens and credit card machines.
