Great News for Patients in Need of Cataract Surgery!
If you have been putting off your cataract surgery because of COVID restrictions, we have great news! The New Jersey Department of Health has revised the COVID-19 Pre-Surgery Testing Guidelines for surgery centers like SurgiCenter of Vineland.
The First New Guideline
You are exempt from pre-procedural COVID-19 Testing and self-quarantine if you provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination. This means that if you are scheduled for eye surgery with us 2 weeks after your second dose in a 2 dose series, or 2 weeks after a single dose vaccine and you are also asymptomatic, we can avoid COVID Testing if you provide with a copy of your vaccination card.
The Second New Guideline
You may be exempted from additional pre-procedural COVID-19 Testing and self-quarantine if you have tested positive within the last 14-90 days and completed the appropriate isolation and are currently asymptomatic.
If you are planning to schedule an eye exam or cataract evaluation for you or a family member, please bring the vaccination card with you for your visit so we can make a copy when we schedule your procedure. Book an Eye Exam or Cataract Evaluation Online Today!
