Message to Our Patients:

For over 75 years, the Wheaton Eye Clinic has been committed to the mission of providing excellent and compassionate eye care to patients in DuPage County and beyond. Our physicians, optometrists, and staff are available and ready to serve our patients’ eye care needs. In the midst of the COVID-19 (“coronavirus”) pandemic, we remain committed to this mission, and we have taken steps to maximize the safety of our patients and employees, in accordance with CDC guidelines, while still providing world class eye care to those in need: 

(1) Physical distancing measures, in space and in time, have been implemented in all of our facilities. These measures are intended to maximize safety for our patients and our staff.

(2) All patients and visitors, as well as all physicians and staff, are required to wear masks in our facilities, in accordance with state and federal health recommendations most recently updated by the CDC in guidelines posted on May 13, 2021.

(3) We encourage family members and friends of patients to wait in their vehicles in our parking lots to reduce congestion within our offices. Pediatric patients should be accompanied by only one parent, whenever possible.

(4) We will continue to screen all patients for COVID-19 symptoms including fever, cough, sore throat, nasal congestion, and shortness of breath. Patients with symptoms are required to reschedule their appointments and will be asked to contact their primary care provider.

(5) Our physicians and staff are mandated to monitor their own temperature and health on a daily basis. Any symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 are reported to Wheaton Eye Clinic leadership as well as the affected individual’s primary care physician.

(6) Those patients who are enrolled with Northwestern Medicine’s My Chart may log into their My Chart account by accessing this link:  https://myc.nm.org/

(7) You are able to schedule an optical appointment for glasses at (630) 588-3694 and schedule a contact lens appointment at (630) 668-8250, Option #2.

(8) Business and Insurance departments are available by phone directly at (630) 588-3632.

 

In conclusion, we want to acknowledge you, the patient, for helping us in our efforts throughout this entire period. We would also like to recognize the dedication and commitment of our  staff in helping Wheaton Eye Clinic avoid closing our doors for even one day due to the pandemic.  If you are experiencing any concerns with your eyes or vision, we continue to be available now. Please call us at (630) 668-8250 , Option #3, and we will help you find the best possible solution to your vision problem.
