COVID updates

Dear Patient,

We at Retina Eye Care have been providing safe and effective care to patients with urgent needs throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of our patients have commented how much they appreciate all the things our team is doing to keep everyone safe. We are 100% prepared to see you. 

Of course you wouldn’t want to see a doctor unless you have to. On the other hand, if you have new visual symptoms or vision loss, do not wait and hope for things to get better on its own. During COVID, we have noticed a number of patients waited too long to come in for their visual symptoms, and the retinal conditions became much more difficult to treat.

ALERT: If you have any new visual symptoms, such as vision loss in one eye, floaters, flashes, wavy lines, or blurred areas in your vision, call us immediately at (508) 903-0003.

We believe that precaution is the key to safety.  Therefore if you feel unwell in any way, even if just a little, we ask you to stay home and contact your doctor.  All Massachusetts guidelines, including mask-wearing, social distancing, and quarantine, must be followed.

We have implemented strict patient/staff screening and office disinfection protocols.  All patients are required to wear a mask (without valve) and stay >6 feet apart.  Only the patient can come in, except for minors and those with disability.  We welcome any family member’s request to be on speaker phone while the doctor is seeing the patient, in order to participate more fully. Please arrive on time, but we cannot let you in early, since we need to maintain 100% safety at all times. If you are waiting outside our office, please do not congregate in the building lobby.

Once you are inside our office, you will find the same Dr. Tang and all our friendly staff members whom you have seen before, all with one goal in mind, to take good care of you 🙂 

Very Sincerely,

William M. Tang, M.D.
