*Updated August 12, 2022

100% of our staff are vaccinated! Vaccination with booster is a requirement of employement.

Helmus Optometry has always followed strict cleanliness and sanitation practices. The health and safety of our patients and employees is our number one priority amid concerns about the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). We are here to serve you, and we want to share information about how we continue to operate safely.

If you are planning a visit:

  1. Only patients with appointments are allowed inside the office.

  2. Everyone entering the building must wear a face mask. We offer free surgical masks at check-in.

  3. In an effort to limit the number of bodies in the office at one time, please leave your family members in the car or outside. Only one essential caregiver is allowed per patient.

  4. All eyewear dispenses, spectacle adjustments and repairs are now by appointment.

  5. If you are sick, please stay home. We will reschedule your appointment if you are ill.

  6. We are a handshake-free zone.

  7. If you have had contact with someone who is ill or are caring for someone at risk, please reschedule your appointment.

Changes We Have Implemented:

  • Limited the number of patients scheduled each day to allow for physical distancing.
  • Required all staff to submit proof of vaccination.
  • Encouraged routine asymptomatic testing by doctors and staff through Healthy Davis Together.
  • Added HEPA filters in pre-testing room, exam rooms, and frame gallery.
  • Installed breath shields on the doctor's equipment in the exam rooms.
  • Enacted more frequent cleaning and sanitizing practices throughout the office, with special attention to all exam equipment, door handles, reception area surfaces, furniture, credit card terminals
  • ​​​​​​​Our policy has always been to keep sick staff home.

We are monitoring information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and federal, state, and local agencies to help ensure the actions we're taking are in line with the latest recommendations and guidance. We are communicating regularly with our employees to keep them informed and to ensure their safety and that of our patients.
