Opening Procedures for COVID-19

At Dittman Eyecare, we take the health and safety of our patients, associates, and communities seriously. We are now open under CDC guidelines for your eye care needs. All three of our offices, Butler, Cranberry, and Grove City, are open and operating with special precautions in place.

What to Expect When You Arrive for Your Exam

Our doctor schedule has been limited to ensure minimal public interaction, and we have expanded our hours. This will help us to decrease interaction with the public and more easily maintain social distancing.

It is also requested that patients arrive at their appointment alone. If necessary, we ask that you only bring one guest to your appointment. If you have young children, special exceptions can be made.

Before entering any of our three locations, you will see signs on the door, informing patients to wear a mask and listing symptoms of the virus that we will be looking for. When you enter the office, you will either see a sanitizing station at the entrance or at the front desk that you can use, and you will be asked to use the PPE supplied to you. You will also see tape on the floor to help patients maintain the recommended 6 feet social distancing.

Our staff will take your temperature during your eye exam check-in, ask you COVID-19 specific questions, and will provide you with a clean, sanitized pen to fill out any necessary paperwork. Our front desks are outfitted with sneeze guards and baskets where used pens will be placed for cleaning. Our waiting rooms have fewer chairs to maintain social distancing as well.

Safety During Your Exam and Frame Shopping at Dittman Eyecare

For our Butler office, which has two floors, we have sanitizing stations set up at the elevator to use when you get on and get off of the elevator to go to the exam rooms. At each of our locations, exam and pre-testing rooms are outfitted with color-coded signs or flags that help us keep track of which rooms are sanitized and which are not.

Our associates and doctors are required to have their temperatures monitored and are required to answer COVID-19 specific questions to ensure they are healthy. Our doctors and staff will also be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE). Instruments, surfaces, and eyewear are cleaned and sanitized between every patient.

Our optical and dispensing areas are outfitted with sneeze guards to protect patients and staff. When browsing for frames, we ask that patients do not touch the frames, but rather allow our associates to assist you. After a customer has tried on frames, they will be placed in a basket for cleaning. If you need measurements for glasses, we have modified our equipment to include a sneeze guard, protecting our patients and associates.
