Oakland Eye Care is committed to providing exceptional, compassionate care even in the face of coronavirus. The safety of our patients and staff is our highest priority and we have taken steps to mitigate the spread of the virus.
The Governor has designated all medical care, including eye care, as an essential service, allowing people to continue to have eye care as needed throughout this time. Oakland Eye Care did reduce our care to emergencies only for 7 weeks to follow the recommendations of President Trump and Governor Whitmer to “flatten the curve” of new cases. Our state has now achieved this, and we feel it is the right time to continue caring for our patients.
The following precautions are in place to help ensure the safety of our patients, physicians and staff:
- We are screening everyone who enters our offices:All patients, visitors, staff and physicians will be screened for symptoms of coronavirus. You will be asked if you have a cough, shortness of breath, or a fever. If you have any of these, or you have recently been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, we please ask that you reschedule your appointment. We will place you on a priority reschedule list for a time after it is safe. You will also have your temperature taken with a thermometer which requires no contact with you.
