Dear Friends,

Due to the COVID-19 virus and per the CDC recommendations for optometrists to stop seeing patients for routine eyecare, we have decided it is in the best interest of our patients, staff, and doctors to decrease patient interactions at this time. We will be in the office for patients in case of emergency or urgent eyecare needs to decrease patients using emergency rooms for these instances. This could change as things progress so please call the office before heading over. We will still be dispensing contact lenses and eyeglasses to individuals who have ordered them. Patients can stop in as needed to pick them up. For those patients that are running low on contact lenses or need to re-order, please consider using this website to order from our office. This would be beneficial to both of us during these uncertain times because lenses will be mailed straight to your house and you would be supporting us during this temporary shut down. Thank you for your consideration. Please stay home and stay safe!
