Covid-19 Telehealth Offering

If you have an issue which cannot wait for an office visit, contact us and we will schedule a FaceTime, Skype or Telephone appointment with one of our doctors. Medicare has temporarily relaxed its Telehealth rules to allow this type of communication during the pandemic crisis. Other insurers may follow suit and allow for reimbursement of virtual care costs. The consultation must be initiated at your request.

To set up your appointment, please follow the instructions below.

  1. Print this Telehealth Visual Acuity Chart.
  2. Select a well-lighted room that is at least 10 feet long.
  3. Tape or pin the printed chart on a bare wall, level with your eyes as you stand.
  4. Measure 10 feet from the wall you have selected to tape or pin your chart. You will stand here during the testing.
  5. If you wear glasses or contact lenses for distance vision, the glasses or contact lenses should be worn during the test.
  6. While standing at your 10 foot marker, cover one eye with your hand without applying any pressure. Make sure you have your eye fully covered during testing.
  7. Read the letters starting from the top. Continue to the bottom row or until the letters are too difficult to see.
  8. Write down the number of the smallest line seen correctly (the line with the majority of the letters correctly identified). Example: If you were able to read 5 out of 8 letters on line 8, you would write 20/20.
  9. Now repeat the test with the other eye covered and record the results.
  10. Keep your results saved so they may be reported to your eye care provider during your telehealth evaluation.

Be sure to fill out our Telehealth Patient Informed Consent form before your call.
