We are all aware of the concern and panic that is occurring surrounding the new coronavirus and COVID-19. As a healthcare facility, we have always had sterilization protocols in place that we utilize between patients to disinfect instruments and furniture to help control the spread of communicable diseases. These protocols were developed based on CDC guidelines. We updated our protocols about a year ago with the commercial release of Pure & Clean products. While there are currently no products that have been tested and cleared to claim they kill this novel coronavirus, we have very high confidence in this product to do so based on its high virucidal activity towards both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses (this list includes influenza, HIV, norovirus, adenovirus, Norwalk virus, rhinovirus, rotavirus, RSV, and H1N1, not to mention its lengthy list of bacteria (including MRSA) and fungi). The company is currently awaiting approval from its coronavirus testing to start making that kill claim. 

We are continuing to operate as normal while taking the added precaution of not shaking hands or hugging our patients. If you are scheduled for your eye exam and are experiencing any symptoms such as fever, coughing, fatigue, etc, we kindly ask that you call or text us to reschedule your appointment. 

If you would like to purchase Pure & Clean hand sanitizer, we do have it for sale in our office. Besides being a superior disinfectant, it has the added bonus of being non-toxic to your skin with a slight moisturizing effect.
