North Georgia Eye Care –Coronavirus Update (03/24/2020)
Thank you for choosing North Georgia Eye Care for your eye care needs. At this time, our office will be limiting non-emergency eye care appointments and procedures per the CDC, WHO and AOA recommendations.
Upon entering our building, we have limited points of entry in order to protect you and our staff. Please have a seat in our foyer, and a member of our staff will screen each patient/visitor before entry.
If you have, or have had a fever above 100.4 in the last 24-48 hours, you will be asked to reschedule your appointment by phone. We also ask that visits be limited to the patient only, unless you are a guardian or caregiver. Please call to reschedule your appointment if you are experiencing a fever, cough, shortness of breath, cold or flu-like symptoms, or have traveled out of the country in the last three weeks.
The health and safety of our patients and employees are our highest priorities. You will be contacted to confirm or reschedule existing appointments as necessary. We have decreased patient encounters and increased sanitation protocols between patients.
We understand that optometrists provide an essential service to the community that continues to be important in these situations. Try to avoid going to urgent care for your eyes. Optometrists are trying to take the burden off of urgent care and are still available for your emergent and urgent eye care needs, over the phone when able. Please call us; we are here to help at 770-867-1913.
We are offering to extend contact lens prescriptions for up to six months. If you have glasses or contact lenses ready for delivery, we will contact you to offer curb-side delivery. We will be happy to make any adjustments to dispensed glasses in a few weeks or when restrictions are lifted.
We are continuing to monitor the situation closely and will keep you informed of any developments. We thank you for your patience. We look forward to providing your eye care again in the very near future. We pray you and your family remain optimistic, safe and healthy!
