Germicidal Ultraviolet: How Lipstock LASIK is Using Cutting Edge Tech to Keep Patients Safe
Here at Lipstock LASIK, patient safety and the safety of our team is always top of mind. We have worked to put in place a number of new procedures to ensure our office stays safe and sterile. With that, we have begun using cutting edge germicidal ultraviolet (GUV) for disinfection.
What is Germicidal Ultraviolet?
Germicidal ultraviolet (GUV) is where ultraviolet radiant energy is used to inactivate bacteria, mold spores, fungi, or viruses. This means that it can be used to effectively inactivate the virus responsible for COVID-19.
How is Lipstock LASIK Using GUV?
We have chosen to use UV light fixtures in our office to help ensure that our office stays as a clean, safe environment for all patients and members of our staff. These light fixtures are safe and are only meant to deactivate bacteria, mold spores, fungi, and viruses to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
