Does your optical dispensary practice infection control? If not, it should, as opticians come into physical contact with patients on a daily basis. We lift up the hair and fold over the ear of a patient to check the temple bend. Some might even admit that they will change nose pads for one patient, and then dispense a new pair of eyewear to another. Best practice would be to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer between patients.
