COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response
We continue to monitor COVID-19 developments daily and rise to the challenge of caring for our patients during this time of crisis. Our doctors and staff remain committed to our core value of Patient Care, and feel an obligation to be available for eye health evaluations or to assist with any vision related emergencies or injuries. Whether your neighborhood office is currently open limited hours or closed entirely, we have options available to those who need us. Click here for a statement from James Wachter, O.D., Chief Professional Officer.
As with all medical facilities, offices that are open a few hours a day for emergent care are practicing safe social distancing and disinfecting surfaces multiple times a day to keep everyone safe. The CDC has recommended the public to delay routine medical visits such as eye exams. If you had an eye exam scheduled in March or April we will be in contact every few weeks to ensure we keep your exam a priority when it is safe to visit us again. In the meantime we have taken additional steps to continue to serve your vision needs.
Telehealth – We are very proud to have recently launched a telemedicine tool, needed now more than ever! If you experience an eye issue that would normally require an in-person visit, you can now schedule a virtual visit on your smartphone. Click here to learn about the options available to you at this time, from the safety and comfort of your home.
Online contact lens orders – You may now order your contact lens supply online from your local eye doctor! We are happy to provide this service to ensure you see your best, even now.
If you have recently placed an order for eyeglasses or contact lenses, we will contact you when your eyewear or contact lens supply is ready for curbside pick up at the office while adhering to safe social distancing guidelines. We will also provide free shipping to your home upon request, just give us a call today.
We look forward to the day COVID-19 is appropriately dealt with and behind us, and assure you we will be here waiting with open doors to serve you in the future.
Stay safe and healthy.
