Saskatchewan has begun reopening the province and Optometry clinics are among the first business to reopen. Nexus Vision Centre has made changes in accordance with the government’s Reopen Saskatchewan plan.
Here’s what you can expect for your eye exam at Nexus Vision Centre.
- We will be keeping walk-in traffic to a minimum and are requesting all visits to our clinic to be made by appointment (including picking up glasses or getting adjustments)
- At this time, wearing a mask is encouraged, though not mandatory
- Hand sanitizer will be provided when you enter the clinic
- All testing and pretesting equipment will be wiped down thoroughly in between patients as they always have been. Additionally, all surfaces of the exam room, including chairs and counter tops will be sanitized in between patients.
- Dr. Patterson will be wearing a surgical mask at all times during the appointment.
- The phoropter (machine that checks prescription) and the slit lamp microscope (for assessing eye health) have been outfitted with clear plexiglass shields to act as a barrier between the doctor and the patient.
- All frames in the frame gallery will be sanitized every time they are touched or worn by a patient. We are happy to still fit you in a new pair of glasses!
- Appointments will be spread out to minimize patient to patient contact.
If you are feeling ill, please stay home and call 811 if you suspect you have any symptoms of COVID-19. Please stay home if you have traveled outside the country in the last 14 days.
We look forward to continuing to provide exceptional care to our patients in this unprecedented time.
