|We are now open for routine
eye care! In order to accommodate all our patients, we have extended our clinic hours temporarily. In order to ensure the safety of our patients and staff, we will be implementing a new safety policy that is outlined below
• All patients will be asked to bring and wear a mask while in the office.
• Only the patient is allowed in the office. For children and adult patients who require a caretaker, one adult may accompany the patient. For those that do not, we ask that they wait outside or in their car.
• Please call our office to schedule an exam, as we may not be able to accept Walk-Ins at this time.
• Before your exam, you will receive a text or email to fill out your intake forms via computer or mobile device. Please fill them out prior to your appointment to expedite your visit.
HERE to download the form now.
• Upon entry, please wait by the front door as a staff member will greet you. They will be taking your temperature. Any temperature over 100 degrees will be asked to reschedule to a different time.
• All glasses and contact lens pick-ups will be asked to wait outside while we retrieve your order. We will then contact you via text to notify you when your order is ready for pick-up by the entrance.
• For new contact lens wearers, before your appointment please watch the "Contact Lens How-To Tutorial" under our contact lens tab on our website.
We are strictly following CDC guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting the clinic. Our goal is to ensure a safe and sanitary environment for everyone in our office. If you have symptoms of cough, respiratory distress, or a fever, we are asking that you reschedule your appointment by calling (323) 589-3381.
Best wishes for good health,
Dr. Hernandez and staff
|WE WANT TO KEEP YOU SAFE...
All of us here sincerely hope that you, your family and friends are all
healthy during these stressful times.
Contact Lens Wear is Safe, however:
• Proper Hand Washing is Essential.
• Disinfect Contact Lenses.
• Discontinue Lens Wear Only if Sick.
Also remember to:
• Disinfect Your Eyeglasses.
• Eyeglasses are Not Proven to Offer Protection.
We are doing what we can to look after your health and your vision, and as always, we appreciate you being our patient.
• Mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, and difficulty breathing
• Symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days
• Spreads person to person through small droplets from nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales.
• Can catch the virus by touching objects and surfaces that droplets have landed on and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.
Steps to take to minimize risk
• Wash hand with soap & water for at least 20 seconds
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people that are sick.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw away the tissue in trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
• Ensure employees have ample facilities to wash their hands.
PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY
Covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze with your elbow or a tissue will greatly reduce the number of germs that are able to spread to people and objects around you.
Even if your illness doesn't seem very bad to you, it could be much more serious for someone who catches your germs.
What Is Social Distancing?
Social distancing is a way to keep people from interacting closely or frequently enough to spread an infectious disease.
Here in the office we're asking you to not sit next to each other to observe Social Distancing.
Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations, please be respectful of others boundaries.
