COVID-19 Update

At Yorkdale Eyecare we are following the guidelines from the College of Optometrists of Ontario and the Ministry of Health to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We have implemented many new health and safety protocols to keep our patients safe while at our office. The following changes have been recently implemented in our office:

  • Our staff and doctors are required to self-screen for COVID-19 signs and symptoms prior to coming to work each day and are required to wear masks at all times and eye protection if a distance of two meters cannot be maintained
  • Upon booking or confirming an appointment and arrival at our office, our staff will conduct a screening exam relating to COVID-19, only those who screen negative will be able to enter the office
  • Everyone entering the office must be wearing a mask
  • Hand sanitizer is available in our office and must be used upon entering
  • Plexiglass barriers have been installed at our front desk and in our optical dispensary
  • Our waiting room has been reconfigured to ensure there is a distance of 2 meters between chairs
  • Our staff are frequently disinfecting our office area and frequently touched surfaces
  • Our schedule has been reduced and appointment times are staggered to allow for social distancing in the office and to allow for time to properly disinfect equipment between appointments
  • The actual appointment time is reduced to ensure limited risk of exposure and cross contamination among our staff and patients. Follow up emails and calls will be sent with any relevant information not covered during your appointment

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns or would like more detailed information regarding our new policies and procedures
