TELEHEALTH IS NOW AVAILABLE!
Telehealth is now available at Piedmont Eye Center! The safety and health of our patients and staff remain our top priority. With that in mind, we are now offering Telehealth to provide a virtual visit for our patients with eye care needs. The virtual appointment is a great option that can address many eye care issues, such as red eye, conjunctivitis, allergies, dry eye flare-ups and many more. The goal of this approach is to provide necessary care to patients while reducing the need for urgent visits to the office or the ER.
How does the virtual visit work?
- To schedule, please call us at 434.947.3984.
- Let us know if you have an apple or an android and that your smartphone has a working camera and microphone.
- The physician will take a history, perform a virtual exam, offer a diagnosis and create a treatment plan.
It’s that simple.
Per CDC recommendations, we are now requiring patients to wear mask for all in-person visits.
For the overall health and well-being of our staff and patients, we ask that you come to the office wearing a mask and keep it in place your entire visit.. Due to limited supplies, we are unable to provide masks for patients.
If you need instructions on how to make your own mask, you can find guidelines from the CDC. There are options available that include sew and no sew methods, and most masks can be made with common household items. Thank you for your understanding.
