Coronavirus / COVID19 — What are we doing to keep you and our practice safe?  How can you help?

Like so many of you, we have spent the last several days and weeks learning about coronavirus 19 (COVID-19) and how it is impacting our world.  For our practice, that means understanding how it affects our patients, their families, friends, our employees, and our physicians.

Our goal is actively supporting our community’s efforts guarding against the spread of COVID-19.  We are also ensuring our healthcare practice is broadly and safely available to help you and your family with your vision health.

We have one simple objective that guides us; keeping our patients and our employees safe.  This has been at the center of our conversations every step of the way in our planning.  With that in mind, we have made several adjustments affecting how our practice supports our patients.

We are closely following the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC), Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and Colorado’s TriCounty Health Department guidelines and recommendations identifying intentional and meaningful steps we can take to help prevent the spread of this virus.

We’d like you to know a few key points about differences you might experience working with our practice as this situation evolves and eventually stabilizes:

  • Our practice cannot test for COVID-19.  Only Colorado’s designated labs are able to provide testing, following emergency and high-risk protocol.
  • Children’s Eye Physicians, Colorado Family Eye Center, Colorado Center for Eye Alignment and its Optical stores are screening all patients and caregivers at the time of scheduling, pre-confirmation of appointments by phone, appointment check in or for any other drop in reason.  We are using abundant caution to NOT expose staff and patients to anyone who meets COVID-19 at risk criteria.  We kindly ask for your patience and acceptance of these additional screening criteria.
  • Geographic areas where there has been a widespread community transmission is an evolving determination.  Children’s Eye Physicians is following CDC and the CDPHE guidelines for identification of these geographic areas.   We ask that you be transparent about your travels and encounters ensuring we are responding appropriately and safely for your benefit and ours.
  • These pre-screening protocols, intended to protect as much as possible the practice’s physicians and staff and other patients/families, may result in:
  1. Your or your child’s appointment will be rescheduled.
  2. You are turned away for service and asked to return another time.

Please offer our staff your patience and understanding if your appointment has to be moved to another date and time.

And finally, a few additional points about the practice’s planning:

  • Patients determined to have high risk vision problems and considered to be of COVID-19 concern (either as individuals or as their caregivers) will be assisted if the practice determines it is reasonably safe to do so and can take trusted precautionary measures to provide patient care in our offices.   This may result in extending the scheduled appointment time as we take extra steps to protect ourselves while helping our patients.  You may also be referred to another provider more capable of providing emergency vision care in a more controlled environment.
  • For scheduled appointments, we are asking that you limit the number of adults and children in attendance for scheduled appointments to ONLY be the patient and ONE other attendee who is the patient’s parent, legal guardian or care giver.   We are very happy to reschedule services in order to accommodate your needs, reducing the number of people attending a patient’s appointment.

We will continue to update you as more information becomes available and we will do all we can to protect you, your family, our physicians and our employees.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 303-456-9456, or send an email to getinfo@cepcolorado.com and we will be very happy to help answer your questions/concerns.

Thank you for placing your trust in our practice for your and your family’s vision health.

We will get through this!

“The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and Dr. DeMoss is great! I like how I can make appointments online and that I get text messages to remind me of my child’s appointment.”



“We love Dr Steele’s bedside manner. She is so easy to talk to about what is going on with your child’s eyes. I don’t feel like I annoy her with my questions. This makes me feel very confident and comfortable with every visit.”


“Outstanding! Everyone was so patient with my 3 year old, I would recommend Children’s Eye Physicians to anyone.”
“Love them. The best eye clinic for kids!!! Really professional. Recommend 100%”
“The response of the staff is really good. The physicians are really good in examining and reviewing each and every step required in our children’s eye care. The physician who examined our daughter was kind enough in listening and responding to our queries. I would definitely recommend my friends approach this office for any of eye care needed for their children.”
“Doctors were able to diagnose and explain diagnoses completely independent of my child’s behavior, which is incredibly important for a speech delayed toddler.”
“Dr. DeSantis is terrific. I would recommend her to everyone who is dealing with double vision. The Ward Road staff is very good at their jobs, too.”
“Everyone I ever see or talk to at Colorado Center for Eye Alignment is above and beyond enthusiastic, informative, kind and welcoming. Whomever hires the group, which includes front desk staff, technicians and doctors, clearly has a keen eye for people who are compassionate leaders – regardless of their job title. And the results from the strabismus surgery Dr. Bardorf did are more than I imagined possible. It has and continues to open the door for me to come back to life in the world! He is an amazingly talented, brilliant surgeon who has talked me through every stage of this with personal attention. I know this is what he does with all of his patients — truly a unique skill in the world of overloaded medical practitioners.”

“Thank you very much for mailing Crew his glasses. He is thrilled and I am extremely grateful for you generous professionalism. Getting to Denver to pick them up was proving to be more challenging that I had anticipated. It’s really cool that you took care of us!”



“I absolutely love this place. Everyone from the front desk to the DR and the lady who helped me choose my sons glasses was just fantastic. I loved how they were able to keep my son’s attention and how they explained every step to me. I honestly couldn’t of found a better eye Dr. for my boy.”
