COVID-19 Mask Update

coronavirus virus mask corona pandemic outbreak disease epidemic sars cov 2Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced on March 2, 2021 the lifting of some statewide COVID-19 mandates which will go into effect on March 10, 2021. The most important of these being the mask mandate.

 

As we know, although vaccines are being distributed statewide, COVID-19 remains a serious concern in Texas and new cases are still being confirmed daily. The Texas Board of Optometry released a statement for Texas Optometrists on March 2, 2021,stating that Optometrists should continue to follow infection control guidelines for healthcare workers as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control.

 

In the continued effort to keep our community safe, we will still require the use of masks while in our office. We are committed to ensuring the safety of both our staff and our patients during the ongoing pandemic.

 

In addition to mask use, our office will continue practicing all COVID-19 safety protocols, including constant sanitation of the office, and social distancing where possible.

 

Thank you for your continued understanding and support. The safety of our staff and patients is as always our top priority.

Covid-19 Update

Covid19imagered

As we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic together, we are developing new protocols with your safety and convenience in mind. In order to protect our patients and staff, we are limiting the number of patients that may be present in our office at any one time. Appointments are now required for all services including those in our optical (e.g., frame selection, dispenses, and repairs). We request that no more than one person accompany any patient to our facility. Families with multiple appointments will be allowed into the office in groups of two. All visitors are required to wear a mask.

We will be screening everyone who comes into the office with a non-contact thermometer. We would ask that those with temperatures over 99.6, have a cough, or loss of taste or smell to reschedule any non-emergent appointments they may have. Please call our office at 512-328-0015 if you require aid during this difficult and trying time.

We are masking, disinfecting, and washing our hands more aggressively than ever. As well, our staff is being screened daily for illness. If you feel uncomfortable making a trip to our office, we will be happy to arrange to have your glasses or contact lenses shipped directly to you, or we will gladly deliver them directly to you while you wait in your car. Thank you for your understanding.
