Comprehensive Eye Care
Ophthalmology for Monterey, Salinas, Santa Cruz, and Hollister
To the patients of Monterey County Eye Associates, Eric Del Piero, MD and Monterey Bay Eye Center:
We are a business that has remained open during the Monterey County Shelter in Place and we have been seeing urgent patients. Beginning Monday, May 4, we will schedule patients for non-urgent eye exams, and we will begin performing elective surgery. We have taken appropriate measures to assure the safety of our patients and staff by implementing physical distancing and disinfection procedures in all our offices. We continue to be concerned about our patients who are diabetics or over the age of 60 with existing medical conditions.
We ask that patients who come into our offices not bring any family members or companions with them into the waiting room so we can maintain physical distancing. If the patient requires assistance, please make arrangements in advance with our staff. We require all patients to wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth while in our office. Patients not wearing a mask will be rescheduled.
If you or a family member have been sick with a fever or a cough within the last two weeks or if you have traveled from any of the affected areas, we will reschedule your appointment.
We understand that some of our patients will want to reschedule their appointments during the extended Shelter in Place order and we will do our best to accommodate everyone. Your eye health is important to us and we will be happy to discuss any concerns that you have.
