Due to the ongoing coronavirus epidemic, we are forced to postpone all appointments through at least May 15, 2020.
When will we reopen? Right now, June 1st, 2020 is our tentative date to start seeing patients again. This may be moved up or pushed back, depending on circumstances. We know many families are anxiously waiting.
Our optical shop is open by appointment only. Please navigate to our website’s optical page for details on how to schedule an optical shop visit.
In the meantime, we are working hard at figuring out how to make an office visit as safe as possible for all involved – patients, staff and our doctors. Eye exams present unique challenges, as they necessitate close face to face distance, and therefore are especially risky in terms of virus spread.
Going forward, we anticipate reducing the number of appointments per day to avoid crowding, limiting visits to one parent & child (no siblings), requiring pre-visit screening and temperature checks, and other measures. Parents and children who are old enough will be required to bring and wear face coverings.
We are going to do our best to try and accommodate as many requests for appointments as possible, and hope to extend our hours to ease the current backlog. Please understand that our staff and doctors face certain limitations like everyone else. Have patience if we cannot see you as soon as you desire.
If your child has a true eye emergency that cannot wait, please call our office and leave a message with our answering service. One of us will return your call. If you have a non-urgent medical question about your child’s eyes or glasses, please email us at [email protected].
Where appropriate, our doctors may be able to do a telemedicine visit.
Thank you. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
