COVID-19 Policy/Procedures

Effective May 15th, we are increasing our office hours from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm.
At that time, we will provide routine eye care for prescription glasses and contact lenses as well as medically-necessary eye health care.
For the safety of our medical staff and patients, you must wear a mask when coming to the clinic. Services will not be provided to those who do not wear a mask.
In addition, no more than one family member may accompany a patient to their appointment to promote social distancing and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
We thank you for your understanding as we all are dealing with this public health crisis. Stay well. Stay safe
