Lowy & Sewell Eye Care is now open to non-urgent as well as urgent care.

We have implemented the guidelines set by the College of Optometrists and the Ministry of Health.

  • Disinfection of touch points and equipment
  • Use of plexiglass barriers
  • All staff and patients are required to wear masks
  • A maximum number of people in the office will be strictly enforced to allow for 6 feet of spacing
  • Use of telemedicine as needed

The examination will be modified to provide the same level of care as always, but will decrease the time the Doctor is in close proximity to the patient. Advanced technology will be advised to keep this time to a minimum.

Our goal is safety while providing leading edge eye care.
