Simpson Optical is committed to safeguarding the health of our patients, the public and our staff. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has been rapidly evolving, and we are following all recommended guidelines to prevent public gathering in an effort to minimize the spread of this threatening disease.
At the same time, we need to ensure that we continue to provide eye care to our patients. We will continue to see patients during this pandemic, but in a modified way. We appreciate your help and understanding as we take the recommended measures to help ensure your safety and health.
We will be calling you before your appointment to ask if you have any risk factors that might put others at risk for getting the virus, including travel history or symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath. If you have symptoms such as these, please call your doctor or pediatrician for advice. We ask that you do not reschedule your eye appointment until your general doctor or health authorities say it is safe to do so.
If you have no symptoms but have a travel history or contact with someone who has either symptoms of fever or cough, or a tested diagnosis of Coronavirus, we will ask you to reschedule your appointment for 30 days.
We ask that every patient comes alone or is accompanied by no more than one person. We are also limiting exam areas to patients only, unless they need a parent or caretaker with them. Otherwise, everyone else should remain in the waiting area or in their car.
Due to concerns for children having contagious disease with mild to no symptoms, we ask that you do not bring children under 18 to your appointment. Patients under that age should keep their appointment if they have one scheduled and are not exhibiting any symptoms.
If you have any questions regarding your appointment or care, please call our main line at 859-278-2020. We ask for your patience as we will be responding to many calls.
We understand how much you value your eye care, and we are committed to continuing to provide it. Thank you for your understanding and keeping Simpson Optical a safe space for our patients and staff. Please continue to monitor this website, and our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/SimpsonOptical, where we will continue to provide updates as the situation requires.
