Seeta Eye is open for business. Both our Poughkeepsie and Yorktown offices are now able to resume the routine services, including annual eye exams, our patients rely on. However, in the time of COVID-19, these visits will be slightly different than what you may be used to.
We are taking every precaution to ensure our staff and our patients remain safe. In order to do this, we have implemented new protocols and increased safety measures designed to prevent community spread of the virus.
Our doctors and staff know to stay home at the first sign of symptoms. We have implemented daily temperature checks for all staff to make sure no one with a worrisome temperature is in the office. To further protect both you and our staff, we have installed Plexiglas in front of the reception desk and placed all waiting room chairs at least six feet apart. The latter is precautionary only. We will be limiting the number of patients we see at any given time to help avoid patient-to-patient spread as well.
We ask, during this time, that non-patients, including family members, wait outside of the building whenever possible.
Everyone inside the building must wear a mask. This includes doctors, staff, and patients. There is no exception to this requirement. In addition to masks, our doctors have special face shields to wear during exams, where close person-to-person contact is unavoidable. Frequent handwashing with medical-grade soap is also utilized. Hand sanitizer stations have been placed in several locations throughout the office for use by patients and staff.
We disinfect all surfaces, including lobby chairs, after each use. We also dedicate a staff member to each patient, enabling us to disinfect in real-time.
We Care About You!
We care deeply about the health, safety, and happiness of each of our patients. We will continue to implement heightened cleaning and safety protocol until such measures are no longer necessary.
At Seeta Eye, we do everything possible to provide the most effective care under the strictest sanitary conditions. If you have questions about our safety measures or if you are ready to schedule your next visit, call us at 845-454-1025 today. Seeta Eye Center maintains offices in Yorktown and Poughkeepsie. We serve all surrounding areas of New York.
