Urgent Patient Information re COVID-19
Updated May 13, 2020
Alberta Retina Consultants continues to maximize patient safety while providing urgent and emergent eye care. When you attend your eye appointment you will notice that our staff are wearing masks, gloves and eye protection. We are also screening people at the building entrance.
Alberta Retina Consultants REQUIRES ALL entering the office to cover their mouth and nose. If you have a mask please wear it, alternatively a scarf or other cloth covering is acceptable.

At Alberta Retina Consultants we have significantly decreased patient numbers to ensure waiting rooms are as empty as possible so please have your driver and any other non-essential people stay outside.
If you are scheduled for an eye appointment at Alberta Retina Consultants and you feel the risk to your health from COVID-19 is too great feel free to call our office for advice. If you plan not at attend, please tell us ASAP so we can adjust our bookings accordingly.
To protect other patients, our staff and our physicians we would ask that you delay your appointment for the following reasons:
- You or someone in your household has travelled outside of Canada in the last 2 weeks.
- You or someone in your household is feeling unwell, has a sore throat, fever, cough or is having difficulty breathing.
- You or someone in your household is currently in any part of the 14-day self-isolation period.
Please be honest with your response to the above concerns. Many of our patients are at severe risk from COVID-19 and we would not want another patient compromising their health.
Please do not attend your appointment if any of the above statements are true but instead call or email our office to rebook to 14 days in future
