URGENT PATIENT CARE UPDATE DURING COVID19

As health authorities and government continue to provide updates on COVID-19, we have evolved our approach to providing essential emergency eye health services to our patients. There have been some critical principals we have used to thoughtfully help guide our decisions:

  • We care deeply about our patients and their families, our doctors, our staff, and our communities
  • Safety for all is of paramount importance
  • We are dedicated to providing urgent care
  • We will be doing all we can to be here for you

What does this mean for you?

  • We are shifting operations to urgent care only with appointment only via telephone.
  • If your need is not urgent, which means we will not be able to see you in-person, we are available to answer your questions/concerns tele health call. No issue is too big or small, so do not hesitate to email us for anything at info@island-eyecare.ca. If required we will schedule a tele health call with Dr Narang to assist you further.
  • We will continue to deliver product using mail services and social distancing
  • Through our e-commerce site (https://www.island-eyecare.ca) you will be able to purchase contact lenses and eyewear which will be delivered to you via direct mail. In addition to this, you will be able to pick up emergency eyewear and contact lenses at our locations where we will be practicing safe distance pick up procedures.
  • We are committed to communicating with you often and transparently throughout this crisis

We want you to know we are here for you. We encourage you to email us at info@island-eyecare.ca for advice on how we can best help you with your eye health needs. We are very grateful for your patience and for trusting us with your eye care. We look forward to resuming regular operations and welcoming you back to our clinic as soon as it is safe to do so. Until then, please stay safe.

 

Thank you

Dr Anita Narang and Staff
