Ophthalmology, our goal is to provide the highest quality of ophthalmic care for our patients in a personalized and compassionate setting. We are dedicated to providing the latest medical technology in serving your health needs and strive to be your partner in eye health.
As a valued member of our Highland Ophthalmology Associates patient community, we want you to know that we continue to keep our doors open to serve your eye healthcare needs during this national pandemic and are scheduling appointments. We hope that you and your family are safe and well during these unprecedented times that we are currently experiencing.
Please rest assured that our office is following all recommended guidance from public health authorities, including best practices for hygiene, infection control, and medical professional team health.
Not sure if you should come in? Please call our office and speak with one of our assistants to discuss your current situation. Telemedicine video-consultations are available to some patients who need to be seen but either cannot or do not wish to come into the office and may be an appropriate option for you. Please call us at (845) 562-0138, to see if you are an appropriate candidate for this telemedicine option.
It is also important to us to assist those patients who have broken or misplaced their glasses or are in urgent need of contact lenses. Please contact us if this is an issue you might be having.
Your continued support and cooperation are greatly appreciated, and we will remain vigilant in our effort to maintain a safe environment for both our patients and staff by continuing to ask our patients when arriving for an appointment, to kindly not come into the office, but instead call (845) 562-0138, Option #6 when you arrive to advise us that you are in the parking lot. Our staff will then do a verbal screening on the telephone and advise you when one of our technicians will be available to meet you at the door and immediately escort you into an exam room. We are attempting to do everything possible to limit the number of interactions our patients have with others.
We kindly ask that you come unaccompanied to your appointment unless it is absolutely necessary. If you feel it is critical that you be accompanied, your accompanier will also be screened. This may include checking your temperature upon arrival.
Otherwise, please do not bring spouses or children to your appointment for everyone's safety and wellbeing.
As a reminder, Governor Cuomo has mandated that masks must be worn in public places and are required to be worn in this office. We will not supply masks due to the shortage of PPE (Protective Personal Equipment) in our area.
We kindly ask that you stay home and call the office to reschedule your appointment if you or someone you may have come in contact with, are exhibiting the following symptoms:
We are hopeful for a speedy recovery from this unique and stressful time and the resumption of normal daily living.
In the meantime, HIGHLAND OPHTHALMOLOGY ASSOCIATES is doing everything possible to maintain your safety, help prevent spread of the virus, but continue to support those in the community who require our medical assistance. Call us at (845) 562-0138 with any questions or concerns that you may have. We apologize for any inconvenience that our changes in protocol may have caused you, and thank you for your patience, cooperation and understanding during this time.
