All persons entering the building will be required to comply with the CDC guidelines for health care while re-opening during COVID-19. Upon arrival, please call the Holland office at (616) 395-0606 or Hamilton at (269) 751-4440. A staff person will direct you further on entrance procedures.

What to expect at your eye examination during the COVID 19 era:

To comply with the Federal Phases of Re-opening and standards set by the American Optometric Association, we must continue to maintain social distancing, allow for thorough disinfecting between patients, and limit office occupancy. To ensure these occur, the main entrance will remain closed during operating hours.

Office appointments will be limited to the patient only, with one adult guardian to accompany a minor.

Please arrange care prior to arrival for any additional children, as they will not be allowed to enter the building. Consider rescheduling if these occupancy limits do not work for your family.

Parking spaces have been numbered. Upon arrival, please call the office (616-395-0606) to let staff know your name, reason for visit, and parking space number. You will be directed by a technician in the vestibule area when you are able to enter. You may be asked to wait in your car during busy office times or if you have arrived early for a scheduled appointment.

Entering the building, you will be screened for signs and symptoms of the COVID-19 virus. Non-contact forehead temperatures will be taken. A temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher will require you to reschedule. Each person entering the building will be required to wear a face covering or cloth mask. Very limited numbers of disposable masks will be available for patients in office. Lack of a mask will require rescheduling your appointment.

Social distance lengths of 6 feet have been marked on the floor in front of patient service desks. In an effort to limit transfer of paper between staff and patients, please have your medical and vision insurance cards ready to verbally verify the member name and contract numbers. You will be asked to verbally consent to the HIPAA and billing policies of Lakeshore Eyecare Center, witnessed by a staff member. Demographic information will be asked verbally for a staff member to enter into your Electronic Health Record manually.

Please come to your exam wearing glasses if possible. During pre-testing for your exam, a technician will ask medical history and current medications. Paper health forms will not be given out and medication lists will not be scanned in at this time. Following your exam, any sample eye drops, coupons, or contact lens trials will be brought to you but a technician in the exam room. We recommend contact lens trails are taken home vs inserting in the office. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled and contact lens orders will also be placed while remaining in the exam room to best maintain social distancing at check out areas.

A technician will escort you to the optical showroom. At this time, we ask that new frame browsing is done only with the help of an optician and frames are removed from displays by staff only. All frames will be disinfected prior to being returned to displays.

While checking-out, we ask limiting cash or check transactions if possible. To prevent transferring paper receipts, you will asked to read or show the staff member your credit card number through the plexiglass partition to be manually entered. Your itemized invoice will be emailed to you with your credit card approval number on it.

Thank you for your patience as we at Lakeshore Eyecare Center do our part to re-open with the safety of our patients, staff, and community in mind. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to seeing you soon!
