We are very pleased to serve our community again. As we are limiting close contact with patients and disinfecting during the day, your visit will be a bit different than before.

Byron Optometry Office COVID Procedures

In accordance with guidelines from the College of Optometrists of Ontario, our clinic has increased our disinfection protocols to help stop the spread of COVD-19

Our commitment to keeping you safe

Our team will:

  • Not book appointments for anyone who does not pass our COVID screening
  • Clean our hands before and after each patient interaction and throughout the day
  • Wear PPE (personal protective equipment) covering mouth, nose and eyes when interacting with patients
  • Maintain a physical distance of 2m whenever possible
  • Install breath shields on all exam equipment where possible
  • Disinfect all equipment and devices (including eyeglass frames) that have come in contact with patients
  • Increase disinfection frequency of high traffic areas in the clinic
  • Not present to work if we are feeling unwell

We need your help

We request our patients:

  • Book an appointment before presenting to our clinic to help us maintain physical distancing
  • Pass our COVID screening questionnaire
  • Wear a mask. We kindly request that you bring your own mask due to a global shortage of PPE. If you do not have a mask you may purchase one from our office
  • Use the hand sanitizing station before entering our clinic

Temporary changes in service

To help keep everyone safe, we have instituted the following changes:

  • OCT imaging and/or retinal photographs (non OHIP covered, fees apply) are recommended during each appointment to reduce the close contact time between doctor and patient
  • No in-person contact lens fittings/teaching (virtual appointments available)
  • Telehealth/virtual appointments are recommended if in-person appointment is not required
  • Appointments will be prioritized based on clinical need
  • No ROUTINE appointments for children under the age of 8, urgent care is still available
