Safety Measures

We are taking significant safety precautions and have developed an extensive safety manual and procedures to ensure patient and staff safety.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT MASKS: Due to the physically close nature of most of the services we provide, physical distancing is not always possible in our clinic. Therefore, masks are required to enter our clinics (except when medically exempt or arrangements have been made in advance).

In some cases masks may be removed (i.e. when trying on eyewear) as long as 2 meters of physical distance from other visitors and staff is maintained.

If you are medically exempt or otherwise cannot wear a mask, please contact us in advance to discuss options. Schedule permitting we will accommodate you with an appointment time when no other members of the public and minimal staff are on site to limit exposure.

Our safety measures include:

  • Our team are wearing personal protective equipment including masks
  • Patients are asked to wear masks in the clinic
  • Staff complete a daily COVID screening; patients are screened in advance with a COVID questionnaire
  • Physical distancing, plexiglass shields and capacity limits in effect
  • Extensive and frequent cleaning of high-touch surfaces is being completed between every patient encounter
  • Every frame touched by a patient is cleaned before being returned to the display

We are taking every measure possible to meet and exceed provincial health recommendations and regulatory college guidelines for safe operation. Please contact us with any questions!
