Harvard Eye Associates Now Offers Telehealth Visits

As part of our efforts to keep you safe and contain the spread of COVID-19, Harvard Eye is excited to offer telehealth services to give you virtual access to our doctors from the comfort and safety of your home. These virtual visits are easy for anyone and can be by video or phone using a smartphone or computer. If you are interested in scheduling a telehealth visit for any reason, please email us at appointments@harvardeye.com.

What to Expect If You Have an Office Visit

  • In the office, we will check every patient’s temperature. If you have a fever, cough, are sneezing, or think you may have been exposed to the novel coronavirus from another source, we are required by the health authority to postpone your appointment and direct you to call your primary health care provider or go to the emergency room.
  • Wear a mask. To help stem the spread of COVID-19, we require patients to wear a facemask or cloth face covering during their appointment.
  • Family members: We discourage family members from accompanying patients while in the clinic unless the patient needs direct assistance. Under those conditions, one family member may be permitted to provide assistance. We do encourage family members to wait in their cars.
  • Wash hands. We recommend everyone to frequently wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands; and avoid close contact with others who are not family members.
  • Join us in abstaining from handshake greetings or personal contact.
  • Waiting room chairs are more spread out to allow space between people as in accordance with the “social distancing” guidelines.
  • Staff members are wiping down surfaces hourly and in between each patient.
  • All staff members will wear masks.
  • Optical dispensing areas will have plexiglass shields for patient safety.
  • Exam rooms have been carefully changed to maximize space between patient and staff.

We appreciate the trust and confidence of our patients and the community as we work through this together.
