A message from OCC Eyecare Doctors and Staff:
The continued spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Canada and around the world has understandably raised concerns for you and your families. At OCC Eyecare, the well-being of our patients as well as our staff and employees is of the deepest concern to us. We want you to know that your safety and well-being will remain our top priority as this situation continues to evolve.
As providers of essential medical services, OCC Eyecare like all other medical facilities need to balance the immediate needs of our patients with eye-related medical conditions, with our responsibilities to protect the general public from the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
We continue to monitor the situation closely and are following the latest guidance from local, provincial and federal health authorities, including the Public Health Agency of Canada, to ensure that our practices are aligned with the latest recommendations.
Due to the unique situation of having to care for complicated and urgent eye conditions, it is necessary for OCC Eyecare to continue to still see a significant number of our patients on a regular basis to prevent blindness, in-person at our Eye Clinic. Over the last months, we have been enhancing and implementing many new policies and practices at our clinic to maximize the safety of those who must visit our clinic as many of you may be aware or have experienced during the last several weeks. We want you to be aware of what we are doing.
