Fairfield, NJ – Starting Monday, May 18th, Corneal Associates of New Jersey will re-open its doors to patients amid COVID-19. Over the last eight weeks, Corneal Associates saw only emergency patients and essential post-operative follow-up appointments.
The eye center says that they look forward to welcoming back all patients and all appointment types. The office has worked tirelessly to implement new protocols and processes to ensure the safety of their patients and staff.
Social Distancing – They are offering curbside check-in for all patients. Once a patient arrives, they will meet a staff member at the door who will take their information and give them a temperature check. Once the patient is ready to be seen, the office will text them. Inside the office, waiting areas also will be changing. All chairs are separated 6-feet apart. There are markings on the floor to determine where patients can stand while waiting.
Cleaning – The office is thoroughly cleaning all exam rooms and equipment before and after patients. Frequently touched surfaces, waiting areas, and restrooms are being cleaned multiple times throughout the day. There are hand sanitizing stations throughout the office.
Patient/Staff Screenings – Patients are asked to pre-register before arriving for their appointment. During this registration, they will be required to fill out a COVID-19 questionnaire. Staff will also be screened for any COVID-19 symptoms and receive a daily temperature check. The office has training for staff surrounding the importance of hygiene and how to properly use PPE. Along with patients, staff are required to wear masks while in the office.
All patients must wear a mask/face covering while in the office.
They ask patients to come to their appointment alone unless medically necessary.
Patients who are unwell are asked to call and reschedule or change that visit to a virtual telehealth appointment. If patients experience any possible symptoms (see CDC Guidelines) we ask that you stay home.
Telemedicine is here to stay! Although CANJ has returned to normal clinical operations, we will continue to offer telehealth for individuals who prefer to be seen remotely.
