Bala Eye Care
Coronavirus Update 5/6/2020
Fortunately, we at Bala Eye Care have been able to remain healthy during this Corona epidemic and we hope the same for you.
We have had a physician onsite every weekday morning throughout March and April in order to assist our patients. We have remained busy answering questions and providing tele-medicine by phone, fulfilling contact lens orders, refilling prescriptions, and seeing some emergent patients as needed.
We have prepared the office to create a safe environment to begin seeing patients on a regular basis. All staff and patients will wear masks at all times in the office and everyone will wash their hands when entering and leaving. We plan to maintain 6 foot social distancing, except when the doctor and patient need to be closer. Schedules will be reduced so that fewer staff and patients will be present at any time.
We have clear protective screens set up at the front desk, but we plan to minimize time spent there. Any insurance information needed will be handled verbally.
Patients will be escorted immediately into a sanitized exam room where they will remain throughout their visit (unless a rest room is needed). Some testing may be limited.
We will ask that patients come alone to appointments if possible, and if not, to please limit this to one additional person.
Our optical shop will soon operate during specified hours with very individual attention. We will attempt to minimize distance and contact to the best of our ability. All frames that have been touched will be cleaned immediately. For the moment, the optical shop is still by appointment only.
Patients that are presently scheduled in May will be contacted individually regarding their appointments. Some adjustment of appointment time may be necessary. We will also begin to contact those patients who had appointments scheduled in March and April to assess which of those would like or need to be seen.
For patients that are at high risk due to age or preexisting conditions, we ask that you strongly consider whether your visit can and should be delayed until the prevalence of this disease is further reduced.
Please feel free to contact us 610-667-4066, if you have any questions or desire an appointment at this time.
