Dear Patients: 

We are continuing to do all we can to keep our patients and staff safe during the recent surge in COVID-19. Please be patient with our staff as they follow the protocols we have set in place.


We are scheduling in-office appointments (call 203-245-4242 to schedule).


If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc.) or have been exposed to someone with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 within 14 days of your scheduled visit, we recommend you reschedule your appointment for a later date or convert your appointment to a tele-health visit. When you check-in to our office, you will be asked a series of questions screening you for possible symptoms of COVID-19. 


We have been proactively instituting additional cleaning procedures in all of our offices and have rearranged the waiting room to ensure social distancing. 


To protect both you and our staff, everyone will be wearing facemarks during our patient encounters and throughout the office. We also require that you wear a facemark to your appointment as well (a regular surgical mask or homemade fabric mask is appropriate). 


All patients are asked to come to all office appointments unaccompanied. Visitors should remain in the car. If you require assistance, one of our medical assistants can assist you to the exam room and back to your car. 

We want to thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. Our top priority is providing you with the best medical care for your eye needs while keeping you safe. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if there are ways we can help you. 

Stay safe, 

Dr. Alan Ecker
