COVID Updates and Precautions

We need to take precautions to ensure everyone’s safety.  We would appreciate your help in implementing the following steps:

  • Upon arrival at our office, please stay in your car.    Call or text 781-829-9400 to let us know you have arrived.

  • While in your car, you will be asked the standard COVID screening questions to confirm those that enter have no fever, cough, shortness of breath, or known exposure to anyone with COVID-19.

  • Prior to entering the office, we will be taking each patient’s (and accompanying adult) temperature with a non-contact infrared thermometer.  Anyone with a fever over 100.4 degrees will be asked to reschedule their appointment (minimum 14 days later).

  • We need to limit the number of people in the office at any one time.  We hope you understand that only the patient will be allowed into the office unless a minor, in which case 1 adult will be allowed to accompany them.
  • All patients age 2 or older needs to wear masks while in the office.  Masks will be available for purchase if you forgot yours.

  • For examinations with Dr. Vasilakos, hand sanitizer, available at the check-in window, will be required of all patients and any accompanying adult.

  • For vision therapy patients, handwashing is required at the start of their in-office therapy session.   Parents/family members are asked to remain in their car until their child’s therapy session has concluded.  Parents will be given a time to return to pick up their child.  Upon completion of a session, the therapist will invite the parent, who must sanitize their hands after entering the office, into the therapy room to review home vision therapy procedures and to answer any questions.
