COVID-19

Drs Qureshi and Warminski wish everyone health and safety as the world works to cope with the coronavirus outbreak. At Retina Center of Texas, we will continue to provide care for our patients who entrust us with their vision. We also greatly feel the responsibility to provide that care in a safe manner for our patients and staff, in doing so, we have instituted policies to keep everyone safe.

  • Everyone who enters the clinic (staff and patients) are screened for COVID-19 symptoms and fever
  • Everyone is asked to wear a mask
  • Waiting rooms have been modified to allow for safe distancing
  • Clinic schedules have been modified to allow minimal overlap of patients and prevent crowding
  • Elective surgeries have been postponed
  • Routine examinations have been delayed
  • All patient contact surfaces are disinfected between every visit
  • All high contact surfaces are disinfected multiple times throughout the day

To assist us we ask, for our safety and that of other patients, please stay home and reschedule if  you have:

  • That if anyone has fever, cough, shortness of breath, or any other respiratory symptoms
  • If you have been in contact with anyone with similar symptoms or someone who is positive for COVID-19
  • If you have traveled to an area with high local levels of disease

We will continue these measures until local control of the outbreak allows for resuming more normal clinic and surgery schedules.

Please be assured that everything possible is being done to provide a safe environment for everyone involved.
