FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

COURTS OPTICAL: NEW PROCEDURES TO SERVE YOU

Covid-19 is unlike anything we have experienced in our lifetime and we continue to monitor and respond to its effects during this difficult period. Courts Optical prioritizes the health and wellbeing of our staff and patients and has taken the last few weeks to adjust our operations with new protocols and procedures. Changes have been made in how we conduct appointment bookings and walk-ins.  Specific steps have also been implemented for you upon arrival, as well as for eye testing, fitting of glasses and pick-ups. The branches which have implemented these protocols and procedures are Bridgetown and Sheraton Mall only. These stores will be opened on Mondays–Saturdays from 8:00am – 4:00pm. Our Sunset Mall location remains closed.

Amendments to booking appointments & clinic protocol

Patients will be interviewed concerning health and travel movements at the point of appointment bookings, and upon arrival at the branch. This will include asking about any flu-like symptoms, respiratory issues, fever etc. If any doubts arise regarding the health or travel movements of customers, appointments will be re-scheduled to another time that is safe for all.  Appointment sessions will run for 30 minutes and will be made based on the availability of our optometrists. If patients require accompaniment to their appointment, only one person will be allowed to do so, to minimize the number of individuals who will enter the store.  Additionally, to comply with social distancing protocol, patients will be asked to wait outside if there are already 3 persons in the branch. Walk-ins will be accepted but those who have made appointments will take precedence. Appointments can be made via our online platform at or through our Call Centre at +1 246 431 6850

Sanitization of Pre-Testing and Testing Equipment

All pre-test equipment will be sanitized in the presence of patients before use. Our optometrists will also sanitize test room equipment in the presence of patients before use for the greatest transparency.

Choosing and fitting of glasses

The instruments used for choosing and fitting glasses will be sanitized in the presence of patients before they are used and before trying any frame. Patients coming to collect, will have their glasses also sanitized before they are fitted.

Masks

The wearing of masks is now mandatory for all; to include staff and patients, once entering the store. Gloves will be changed in the presence of the patient.

In addition to the above, we have increased our cleaning process so that counters and surfaces which are used often will be sanitized on a frequent basis.

We encourage you to prioritize your health; wash hands or sanitize often, stay 6 feet apart when you go into public spaces and enjoy spending time with your loved ones as we go through this challenging period together.

Our Customer Service team at +1 246 431 6850 is ready to serve you and can answer any questions you may have. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to serving you soon at one of our locations. Stay safe and stay positive as we continue to provide value you can see.
