The Sight Center of Northwest PA has re-opened its doors to the public…with the safety of clients and staff taking priority! While many services and inquiries can be managed by phone or remotely, other needs simply must be addressed in person. To that end, current office hours are Monday through Thursday 8am-4pm; Fridays, 8am-noon. Face masks are required for entry into the building until further notice. For the safety of all: in-office staff will be reduced, social distancing will be practiced, common areas of the office will be cleaned frequently, and professional sanitization and cleaning of the entire office will occur twice weekly.
Transportation services remain available Monday through Thursday in order to ensure that our clients can get to medical appointments, attend to pressing business, and attain groceries and essential supplies. Social support services remain available, and are being managed on a case by case basis. Participants in the Sight Center’s Diabetes prevention program are being given the option of attending in person, or participating in the program remotely. Support and education groups have re-started, with special attention being given to individual health and safety.
As the days pass and this pandemic continues to evolve, the Sight Center will continue to adjust and grow in order to meet its mission of preventing blindness and promoting independence for those with vision loss. Please stay tuned for updates, follow us on Facebook, and look for monthly articles in the Tri-State Senior News. If you or someone you love is living with vision issues, please contact the Sight Center by phone or visit us in person during our business hours.
