OFFICE UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

We are all greatly concerned in these difficult times. Our goal is to continue to care for our patients, while making safety a priority.

So here is what you need to know:

We remain open to see patients, and our hours may be adjusted according to demand and volume.

We do our very best to comply with “social distancing”. Patients and caregivers are isolated in an exam room upon arrival.

If you or your child are not feeling well, STAY HOME.

Certain problems can be managed remotely via a Telehealth Visit. Please inquire about this option.

We recommend that appointments for routine visits are rescheduled if possible.

As always, all calls are forwarded directly to me when we are not in the office.
My staff and I always strive to return your call promptly.

Finally, thank you for your understanding and for putting your eyes in our hands!
Dr. Sauer and the Staff at Mid-Hudson Family Ophthalmology

VIRTUAL VISITS: REMOTE EXAMINATIONS

 The office remains open during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our practice now has the availability to perform an examination remotely. This visit will consist of a face-to-face video chat. We recommend this for problem-focused visits, for example injuries and infections. This is best suited for patients who have an isolated urgent problem and who wish to avoid coming to the office. This is NOT recommended for routine matters. Insurances are covering these services as if they were visits performed in the office.

If this is something you wish to schedule, our office will guide you through the appropriate steps.

The greatest challenge, and limitation, for the visit is how we can measure the patient’s vision, also known as visual acuity.

There are apps available which you can download to your device which can measure visual acuity. One such app is “Eye Chart” or “Eye Chart Pro”. You can also print an eye chart which can be used to measure vision at a distance of 10 feet. We can provide you with that document.

For this visit, you need to have access through your mobile device with camera,  or computer or laptop with a webcam.

Thank you for considering this option.
