To Our Valued Patients:
South Bay Eye Care Optometry has always been committed to the health and safety of our patients, our staff, and our community.
Because of the current spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that it has been our commitment for years to sanitize each piece of equipment either immediately before or immediately after each use to insure no germs are spread from one patient to another. We have always been proud of this commitment.
Please also be assured that we also clean each eyeglass frame after our patients try them on, so for us…it remains ‘business as usual’ and please be assured that we’ve got your back!
While cleanliness has always been a top priority of our practice, we are also increasing our frequency in which ‘high touch’ areas will be cleaned and sanitized, such as our reception chairs and tables. You’ll notice that we have also removed magazines from our reception area to help ensure a sterile environment.
Additionally, we continue to practice good hygiene by demanding our doctors and staff to wash their hands frequently with anti-bacterial soap or to use a high-percentage alcohol hand sanitizer.
We are actively monitoring both local and national information about the Coronavirus and are continuing to do everything we can to keep our practice a clean and safe environment for you and your family.
South Bay Eye Care will continue to closely monitor COVID-19 and will follow the guidelines provided by local and national organizations like the CDC and WHO, and can assure you that our practice remains a safe place to continue your uninterrupted eye health care.
Following the guideline and the recommendation of the California Optometric Association and its Board members that all optometry office suspend nonessential care, our office will be closed starting Wednesday 3/18/2020 until March 31.
The California Optometric Association strongly recommends that
optometrists practicing in California voluntarily suspend nonessential or
non-urgent optometry care for the next 14 days.
During this time, we will continue to take phone calls and will be available to answer your questions, to schedule appointments, and to make arrangement for you regarding glasses and contact lenses order.
It has been a difficult decision to make, but it is being done out of an abundance of caution during this historic public health emergency. As health care professionals, we all have a role to play in “flattening the curve” in order to follow sound, scientific public health advice to help limit infections and slow the spread of the virus.
We felt it important to keep you updated, and if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to give us a call.
Thank you for being such a valued patient.
Dr. Zenni Su, OD
