Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Flu Protection

The health and safety of our community is always a top priority for us.

We would like to inform you that we are still open to help with all your eye care needs. In consideration of the COVID-19 situation, we are committed to providing a clean and healthy space for both our patients and staff. We are actively monitoring updates and following guidance and recommendations both from provincial health authorities and the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Tsawwassen Optometry Clinic is taking steps to help prevent the spread of any virus and to help protect our patients and staff.

If you have an upcoming appointment and are feeling unwell with symptoms such as fever, difficulty breathing, sore throat, cough, or sneezing; or have been in close contact with someone with these symptoms; or have been travelling abroad less than 14 days ago PLEASE refrain from attending any appointments or accompany any patient to their appointment at our clinic.

Please contact us to let us know if you are unable to attend your appointment.

What we are doing

We have implemented heightened cleaning regimens including the frequent disinfection of frequently touched surfaces.  We have removed both magazines and the toy area from our reception area.  We are regularly keeping up with updates from Health Canada to ensure that we are taking the appropriate precautions as new information becomes available.

What you can do if you are visiting our clinic

If you are visiting Tsawwassen Optometry Clinic, we ask that you help keep the environment as safe as possible for our patients as we have a large number of elderly patients who are at an increase risk of suffering serious effects should they contract COVID-19 or even the common flu.

Upon arriving to our clinic, we ask that you disinfect your hands by using hand sanitizer at the front desk.  Please refrain from touching your face, eyes, nose or mouth.  Please re-sanitize your hands should you accidentally touch your face.  Thank you!

We thank you in advance for your cooperation!
