A Special Note to Patients from ASOPRS Members

In this uncertain time, your ASOPRS member oculofacial plastic surgeons remain focused on the best health interests of their patients.

On March 18, 2020, the American Academy of Ophthalmology — following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) — recommended that ophthalmologists limit outpatient encounters to those considered urgent. Soon thereafter, Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and a member of the Coronavirus Task Force, told medical professionals to “delay if not cancel anything that’s elective” to relieve the coming stress on the health care system.

Many of you with non-urgent conditions (conditions that do not risk your life or permanent vision loss) may have had to reschedule your long-awaited consultation or surgery. ASOPRS member surgeons recognize that this is a significant inconvenience. We appreciate your understanding. 

For those of you who need to visit your oculofacial surgeon for acute needs, your surgeon’s team will follow recommended guidelines to protect your health during your encounter. 

With patience and flexibility, we will get through this challenge together. Please contact your ASOPRS member surgeon if you have any questions.
