Ensuring the health and safety of our patients and staff is our highest priority.

  • Effective March 19, 2020, all elective ophthalmic surgical procedures will be postponed in accordance with the COVID-19 protocols established by the CDC. Patients will be contacted by our surgery schedulers.
  • We will continue to see patients needing constant monitoring and/or treatment.
  • We will continue to see patients with emergency eye care needs.
  • Our clinic staff will be in touch with you if your appointment must be rescheduled.

We continue to implement robust protocols in our clinics and surgery centers:

  • No companions will be allowed in our clinic settings. If a patient requires a driver, we ask that the driver wait out in their car and we will call when the patient is ready.
  • No children under the age of 18 in our clinics or surgery centers.
  • If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms which include fever, chills, and cough, please call to reschedule your appointment.
  • We strongly encourage following the CDC’s recommendations
    • Cover your sneeze, cough and dispose of tissue in the trash can
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
    • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60-95% alcohol
    • Clean surfaces daily
  • We ask for your patience if you experience any delay when calling our practices during this time.
