We apologize for rescheduled visits or maintaining mask requirements, but we are doing our best to protect everyone from people who decline safe practices. If you have received a vaccine, you may remove your mask once you are seeing us, but if you are still unprotected, you must wear your mask for your safety and that of those around you. There is much misinformation about vaccines but opinions on websites or from media outlets are not the same as actual medical data. The simple truth is that the safety and value of the vaccines has been proven beyond any doubt. Unless you have a medical disorder for which your doctor has told you NOT to be vaccinated, there is simply no valid reason not to have one. If you have questions, Dr. Rosenthal holds degrees in microbiology and virology and will be happy to answer them. As always, IF YOU ARE HAVING ANY PROBLEMS, WE CAN AND WILL SEE YOU ANY TIME.

Alliance Retina Coronavirus Response Plan

While the danger is not in the past, we are doing better, thanks in large part to increasing numbers of people getting vaccinated. Even so, some people are following very bad advice and ignoring safeguards, making life more dangerous for all. In the midst of this, patients need continuing retinal care. We must balance patient needs with patient safety. Coming for an office visit addresses needs but also poses risks. At Alliance Retina, we are all vaccinated and therefore pose little risk to our patients. We still wear masks and observe other strict precautions. The following guidelines are our best plan to treat you and keep you safe, based on current expert recommendations.

Under this plan, we can continue your care and at the same time keep you as safe as possible, but we need your help:

  • For patients who have no new symptoms and followup appointments of 3 months or longer, we ask that you let us move your appointment out by a couple of months, when we hope the new wave will be better controlled.
  • If you want to have an online telemedicine visit we can do that. This is most useful for routine stable followups and postop checks when there are no active problems. Please call us at 419-873-6800 for more information.
  • If you are a new, nonemergency patient, we defer the appointment for a short while, but we will tailor the appointment time to your needs.
  • If you need imaging or treatment, we will try to schedule those visits to be as short as possible for your protection. When you arrive, call the office at 419-873-6800 from your car and we will have you come into the office when we are ready. That way, we can check your vision, do any necessary imaging, and offer treatment as swiftly as possible and with minimal exposure to other patients. We have a large atrium where social distancing is quite easy.
  • If you have a fever, aches, cough, sneezing, or any other sign of any sickness, OR IF YOU HAVE BEEN OUT OF STATE IN THE LAST 2 WEEKS, you should stay home and call us. If you have not called your primary doctor, you should do so for specific advice. According to CDC advice, go to the Emergency Room ONLY if you are in acute distress.
  • If you need emergency surgery, we need to verify that you do not have signs of COVID-19, and will perform the surgery in a timely manner.
  • When the crisis is under better control, we can return to more conventional care.

  • Yes, Masks Are Critical.

    The states with the most Covid are states. where people have been told by their preferred politicians and media outlets that masks are useless or an insult to their personal liberty. Tragically this means that those who have believed this and used masks less are now suffering and even dying as a result. In spite of our Governor's heroic efforts, Ohio is a state in crisis. It is within our power to avoid further sickness and death.

  • What About Vaccines?

    The vaccines are based on a new technology that stimulates the body to make its own proteins which stimulate the immune system to make antibodies. They do not get into your DNA and cause any harm. Once vaccinated, you are not immediately immune. It takes time for those antibodies to be made. Until enough people are vaccinated, IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE VERY IMPORTANT TO USE MASKS FOR MONTHS TO COME, REGARDLESS OF THE VACCINES.

  • Appealing to Individual Liberty Is Not New

    But it can be misused, and it is a great tool when trying to instill fear of unknown powers. Our healthcare leaders are not the enemy though, and the science of managing epidemics is no mystery.

  • Safety Is Within Our Power

    But, we have to decide to have it. We need to accept some inconvenience now to protect ourselves and those we love. This is the alternative. We apologize for deferring appointments, but if your vision is stable, this is what we are seeking to prevent.
