Our COVID-19 Response

With the arrival of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we have been closely following the guidelines from the CDC to continue safely caring for our patients. New information is available daily, and we will keep you updated as the situation changes. The health and safety of our patients, our staff, and our community is always our top priority.

Office Hours

Starting June 1 we are extending our office hours to Monday through Friday, 9am-4pm and Saturday, 9am-pm, seeing patients by appointment only.

Keeping You and Our Team Safe

To properly maintain social distancing, our door will remain locked during business hours and only those individuals with an appointment will be admitted. Please call us to schedule an appointment, when you arrive at our office for an appointment or curbside pickup, to order more contact lenses, or with any questions.

We ask that you come alone to your exam, unless you are a parent accompanying your child to his/her exam, or you need a caregiver to help you.

We will ask you to wear a face covering while you are in our office. Feel free to bring your own mask or scarf, or we will provide a disposable mask upon your arrival.

Along with proper social distancing, we will also follow rigorous cleaning procedures for our equipment and our staff will continue practicing proper hygiene and hand washing.

Scheduling Appointments

We will continue prioritizing Emergency Eye Care, but we are also available for Essential Eye Care services. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please feel free to call us.

For patients with a scheduled appointment, please plan on coming as long as you are free of fever or any other “flu-like” symptoms.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us.

Emergency Care

If you believe you have an eye care emergency, call us immediately and we will get you in. An emergency situation would be considered vision loss, eye trauma or severe or recurring headaches.

Glasses

For your convenience and safety, we will continue to offer scheduled curbside pick-up service for glasses. Patients who are scheduled for an appointment will also be able to purchase glasses in the office.

All frames tried on will be kept aside for disinfection after each patient.

If you are an existing patient and would like to place a reorder for backup or replacement frames using a current prescription, click here to order online.

Contact Lenses

We urge our patients to contact us if they have less than a 90-day supply of contact lenses. Contact lenses may be re-ordered via phone.  We will continue to ship contact lens orders to patients at no charge.

 

We remain committed to our patients, our staff, and the community. We appreciate your patience as we work through these unprecedented times. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
