To our patient family: We have made the decision to reduce our services to urgent/emergent eye care only until the end of March at which time we will reassess the current situation regarding COVID-19.

What does this mean? Although the physical office will be closed, there will be a staff member available to answer questions, place contact lens orders, schedule urgent/emergent patients and assist with any concerns you may have by phone from 8:30am-3:30pm Monday through Friday.

Our doctors are available for any red eyes, eye pain, sudden vision changes, eye injuries and other urgent/emergent issues with your eyes and vision. If you ARE experiencing any of the afore mentioned symptoms, we ask that you call our office so we can further assess your eye care needs. If a doctor determines your symptoms are urgent or emergent, a doctor will call you to further triage your symptoms, or may request to see you in one of our offices.

If you have glasses ordered or ready for pick up, we can dispense your glasses to you curbside or we can mail them to you at no charge. Please call the office with questions. Please know that we are here for you during this time and would like to sincerely thank you for your patience as we navigate through this time of uncertainty.

Best wishes for good health,
The Northern Minnesota Eye Care Team
 
WE WANT TO KEEP YOU SAFE...
All of us here sincerely hope that you, your family and friends are all healthy during these stressful times.

Contact Lens Wear is Safe, however:
• Proper Hand Washing is Essential.
• Disinfect Contact Lenses.
• Discontinue Lens Wear Only if Sick.

Also remember to:
• Disinfect Your Eyeglasses.
• Eyeglasses are Not Proven to Offer Protection.

We are doing what we can to look after your health and your vision, and as always, we appreciate you being our patient.


Symptoms
• Mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, and difficulty breathing
• Symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days


Transmission
• Spreads person to person through small droplets from nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales.
• Can catch the virus by touching objects and surfaces that droplets have landed on and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.


Steps to take to minimize risk
• Wash hand with soap & water for at least 20 seconds
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people that are sick.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw away the tissue in trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
• Ensure employees have ample facilities to wash their hands.
   
PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY
Covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze with your elbow or a tissue will greatly reduce the number of germs that are able to spread to people and objects around you.

Even if your illness doesn't seem very bad to you, it could be much more serious for someone who catches your germs.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

What Is Social Distancing? Social distancing is a way to keep people from interacting closely or frequently enough to spread an infectious disease. Here in the office we're asking you to not sit next to each other to observe Social Distancing. Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations, please be respectful of others boundaries.
