As of March 17 at 5:50PM, The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended that all optometry practices close for routine care for the
next “several weeks”. Following these guidelines, we will be closed for routine examinations until at least April 1, or until further federal disease control guidance is available to us. However, we will have a skeleton staff here from 9-3 PM to answer phones, dispense and order contacts, and dispense glasses that have been ordered.
We continue to strictly adhere to hygiene and infection control protocols as we always have. We have reinforced staff training in basic
and advanced hygiene and confirmed our cleaning and disinfection techniques are consistent with CDC recommendations.
