Valued Patients,

Here at Brooks Eye Center, our patients’ and staff’s health and safety is our utmost priority. Given the recent outbreak of COVID-19, we are closely monitoring the situation as it applies to our patients and staff and adjusting procedures accordingly. We want our patients to know that we will do everything within our scope to keep providing quality eyecare while being diligent about infection control and prevention.

Our exam areas are being cleaned and disinfected after each patient is treated and all our staff are following strict hand-washing and sanitizing regimens. We have also implemented a pre-screening process and are taking measures to minimize waiting in common areas.

In addition to our in-office efforts, please consider the following preventative measures: if you have traveled internationally, been on a cruise, or traveled to a high-risk area, please call our office before coming in. Also, if you have a compromised immune system, have experienced any respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness, or fever), please reschedule to been seen at a later date.

These procedures are an effort to minimize any unnecessary exposure to possible viruses and infections to our staff and patients, as well as to prevent the spread of this virus as much as you can. Your patience and understanding during this time is greatly appreciated. Please don’t hesitate to call our office with any questions or concerns.

Thank you!
