Dear Ochsner Eye Patients,

In accordance with the recommendations of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and state and local authorities, our office has begun to reschedule patients that were cancelled due to COVID- 19. We are working to get all patients back on the schedule as soon as possible.

As we move through this phase, there are some changes to our office protocols that we want you to be aware of. On the day before your appointment, we will call you to prescreen your current health status. At your appointment, before you enter the office, your temperature will be taken and you will again be asked the prescreening questions. We are continuing to maintain social distancing and seeing a decreased number of patients daily to avoid congestion in the waiting room. Do not arrive early for your appointment or you may be asked to wait in the hallway or your car until your appointment time.

Only one person will be allowed to accompany you to your appointment and they will also be screened and have their temperature taken prior to entrance into the office. Also, it is IMPERATIVE that you (and your visitor) wear a MASK to your appointment.

These restrictions have been put in place for your safety and to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in our community. We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.


Katherine I. Ochsner MD and staff
