Eyecare During the Covid-19 Pandemic

Important Message for Eyecare During the Covid-19 Pandemic

We Are Open For Business!
We are open and are observing social distancing protocols. We are also asking that patients wishing to be seen should bring their own masks.

For the public’s health and safety, optometrists, ophthalmologists and other doctors are being urged to see patients only for urgent or emergency problems during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The importance of this:

  • Limiting contact between patients and staff in offices, waiting rooms, exams rooms, and surgical facilities helps to reduce the spread of the coronavirus;
  • Conserve vital disposable medical supplies (like masks, gloves, face shields, and sanitizing wipes, etc.) helps for use in hospitals where they are most needed right now.

Be sure to call your eye care provider for guidance in the following situations:

  • You have an eye disease (such as macular degeneration or diabetes-related retinopathy) and receive regular eye injections;
  • You have any vision treatments that are routinely applied at the eye care provider’s office, and you are uncertain whether these are considered urgent care;
  • You suddenly lose or notice changes in your vision (such as blurred vision, wavy areas of vision, or blank spots in your field of vision);
  • You notice a lot of new floaters or flashes of light in your vision;
  • You have eye pain, headache, red eye, nausea, and vomiting.
