At present, all parts of the world are hit hard by COVID 19. The department of Oculoplasty and Orbit at Susrut Eye Foundation and Research Centre is taking all possible measures to protect its patients and staff from contracting the disease.
In the OPD, we are following safety measures like social distancing, hand-sanitisation and masks for our patients and staff. Surface decontamination is done several times in a day by trained housekeeping staff. Doctors are using special protective gear, including N95 masks, face shields, breath shields attached to slit-lamps, etc. for prevention of contamination. All procedures are being performed with utmost precaution.
In the operating room, we are maintaining utmost vigil to prevent any spread of infection. Doctors and OT staff are wearing personal protective equipment and performing all surgeries and procedures following recommended guidelines.
