VisionPoint Eye Center is following Phase 4 guidelines of the Restore Illinois plan. The health and well-being of our patients, staff, and doctors continues to be our top priority. As we anticipate seeing patients, we have taken several steps to do our part to protect each other and ask for your help too:
To reduce the total number of people in the building at one time, VisionPoint asks drivers and other guests accompanying patients to remain in the vehicle during the exam. Minor age patient or a patient who needs assistance may have one guest accompany them. Patients should arrive no earlier or later than 5 minutes for their appointment. Patients arriving early will remain in the vehicle until the appointment time.
At arrival, all patients are required to wear a mask covering the nose and mouth while in the building. Patients can bring a mask from home or a mask will be provided. All staff and doctors will wear masks during patient exams and treatment. There will be NO TALKING between doctor and patient when their faces are close during the eye exam. A plastic shield has been added to eye exam equipment for additional protection.
Cleaning and disinfecting
While we have always provided the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene, we have taken additional measures to increase the frequency of cleaning and sanitizing equipment, hard surfaces, door handles, and all frequently touched surfaces. Patient exam rooms will be thoroughly disinfected between patients. We have also added hand sanitizer stations throughout the building.
