A child receives an eye exam during a low vision clinic at Clovernook Center

June 16, 2020

The Pediatric Low Vision Clinic, a joint program between Clovernook Center for the Blind & Visually Impaired and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, is excited to resume operations and continue to serve patients and their families with a world-class patient and family experience. Due to COVID-19 safety concerns, we have implemented updated procedures and safety measures designed to keep patients and staff safe.

Please take a moment to read over the new safety procedures before arriving for your Pediatric Low Vision Clinic appointment at Clovernook Center:

  • Temperature checks of incoming patients and guardians will be taken upon arrival.
  • Health screening questions will be asked, including about the presence or absence of any symptoms associated with COVID-19 and exposure to anyone who may be carrying the disease.
  • No siblings, please. We ask parents to bring only the patient into the appointment to mitigate exposure risk.
  • Masks are required of all visitors upon entry to the facility.
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers have been installed throughout the facility, including in each exam room.
  • Staff will be wearing safety goggles as an added level of protection against the potential spread of the virus.
  • The clinic has lowered the number of patients seen in one day so staff can thoroughly sanitize rooms, surfaces and equipment between assessments.
  • Remote involvement will be available for TVI (teacher of the visually impaired) or other stakeholders via a secured platform like Zoom, Facetime, or video call so they can remain involved, which is critical to their future success.

This is a high-touch assessment in a no-touch environment, so it’s our highest priority to go the extra mile to mitigate risk as much as possible to protect our patients and their families – and our doctors, TVIs, and technicians and their families, too.
