COVID-19 Update

We continue to serve our patients as optometry is an essential business, but we have instituted changes like scheduling hourly appointments. This will help to reduce the person to person contact and allow time to properly disinfect between patients.  We are also asking a few things from you.

Masks are mandatory.

  1. Unless you are a minor, please come individually.
  2. Please reschedule if you feel ill, have acquired a cough, sniffles, or have been running fever since you made the appointment.
  3. We will have you use hand sanitizer or wash your hands before you are seen.
  4. If you are picking up contacts or glasses we ask that you call us from your car when you arrive so we can bring them out to you.
  5. We are back to normal business hours and both routine and urgent care.
  6. We are still ordering glasses and contacts for our patients.

Things are very confusing with the onset of COVID-19 and we have adopted different policies that allow us to be responsible to the practice as well as our patients.  We apologize for any inconvenience and ask for your cooperation as guidelines seem to be changing daily.

Thank you for letting us take care of your eyes!

Joel Elsten, O.D.
