Important Benefits of Vision Care Telehealth During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Life changed for most Americans rather dramatically in early 2020 with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Day-to-day life even included alterations in the manner in which people access medical care, including eye care. During the coronavirus pandemic, people from all walks of life are accessing telehealth or telemedicine with increasing frequency, including when it comes to seeking professional assistance from an eye doctor. 

Telehealth appointments are ideally suited for a variety of situations, including an array of eye care issues. These include:

  • Prescription needs 
  • Allergies
  • Dry eye
  • Pink eye
  • Scratched eye
  • Sty

Let’s take a look at 3 of the main benefits patients experience when they turn to telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Enhanced Safety During the Pandemic

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, has enumerated important practices we all need to employ to enhance our safety and protect our health during the COVID-19 pandemic. These strategies include wearing masks, social distancing, and staying home as much as possible. 

One main benefit of telehealth is that you can complete your eye doctor appointment from the safety and comfort of your home during the coronavirus pandemic. To be clear, we go to great lengths to follow CDC guidelines for masks and social distancing for patients who come to our office. But for patients with conditions that can be served through telehealth, this is a great option to reduce unnecessary travel and interactions.

Efficient Appointment with Doctor

Another benefit associated with telehealth during the pandemic, or at any other time, is efficiency. Thanks to telehealth, you do not have to spend time driving to an appointment, sitting in a waiting room, and otherwise dealing with seeing a doctor in the brick and mortar world. This excessive time is essentially eliminated when it comes to telehealth.

Confidential and Private

To clear any misconceptions, a telehealth appointment is completely confidential and private. Our telehealth appointments are conducted over a secure online portal, connecting you from the privacy of your home directly with our team here in the office. You can have the peace of mind that comes with a direct, private, face-to-face conversation with your provider.
