With all of the uncertainty surrounding this COVID-19 pandemic, and the aftermath that we will be dealing with for some time to come, we know it has been hard to prioritize your eye health!
If you are putting off going to the doctor, you are not alone. According to Kaiser Health News:
-1 in 3 Americans are delaying medical care due to financial loss or even stress caused by COVID-19
-29% of adults said they avoided medical care because they were afraid of contracting the virus.
Each day that passes where you put off your medical treatment causes more concern about the impacts of the delays. Putting off treatment delays the detection and treatment of early stage diseases and causes lack of proper management care for chronic conditions.
THERE IS GOOD NEWS!! The Suburban Eye Institute doctors and staff are here and ready to see you. Here are just a few of the steps we have taken to ensure the health and safety of each of our patients:
-Strict social distancing policies throughout the office
-Visitor restrictions (meaning only the patient is permitted in the office during the exam unless there are special needs that require assistance)
-Strict monitoring of patient and staff temperatures using non-contact thermometers
-Mandatory use of masks throughout the office for patients and staff
-Rigorous cleaning an disinfecting in exam rooms, screening rooms, and throughout the office
If you have been putting off getting your annual eye exam, or management appointments for a chronic condition, give our office a call 908-464-0123 to set up your appointment today! Spots are filling fast for the summer and we want to do everything we can to have you seen in a timely manor.
Your health and safety are our top priority and we look forward to seeing you soon!
