We are open for elective surgery and routine appointments.
Delivering exceptional patient care in a safe, controlled environment has always been our top priority. To help ensure your safety, we are asking all patients and their companions to follow the Center for Disease Control’s recommended precautions while visiting our facilities.
Please view the video below to learn how we are keeping you and your loved ones safe during this time:
Rest assured that we are fully complying with the recommendations and protocols put forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and continually monitoring updates from the CDC and Department of Health. Steps taken by AMARA in this regard specifically include:
Increasing the rigorous cleaning and sanitizing procedures throughout each office (including frequent disinfection of our equipment, common areas and surfaces)
Making hand sanitizers and disinfectant supplies available to all patients
Reducing density in our waiting rooms and follow applicable social distancing practices
Screening all patients on arrival for possible infection
Center For Sight is maintaining continual communication with staff, and any employee with potential symptoms (no matter how mild) is being asked to stay home. Additionally, all non-essential staff members are conducting business offsite.
Instructions for Patients:
We ask that you call our office and reschedule your appointment if within the past 2 weeks, you have:
Traveled by air or cruise ship, whether international or domestic
Have been asked to self-isolate or self-quarantine by any other doctor or public health official
Have or have had a fever, a new cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, diarrhea, or any flu-like symptoms
Upon your arrival, we will be asking you again about recent travel, your symptoms and taking your temperature with a non-contact thermometer at check-in. This is done as a precautionary measure to ensure you are in good general health.
Please, no visitors. We ask that all companions, including family members, wait outside the office or remain in their vehicle to help reduce density in our waiting areas. If you feel more comfortable, you can also wait outdoors or in your vehicle after check-in.
Steps You Can Take to Limit Exposure:
Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol
Cover your mouth and nose if you cough or sneeze
Avoid touching your face
Stay home if possible and maintain “social distancing” around others
Avoid contact with people who are sick
If You’re Sick:
Monitor symptoms – seek prompt medical care if symptoms worsen
Stay home except to get medical care
Wash your hands, clean and disinfect surfaces daily
If you’re around other sick people, or caring for others, wear a facemask
Call your doctor before seeking care, including for appointments scheduled for other reasons
