The CDC has recommended that all routine, non-medically necessary eye care be deferred until further notice in order to slow the transmission of COVID-19 through our community. Currently, we will be available for eyecare but on a limited, pre-arranged basis for urgent or medically necessary eye care. We will reevaluate the circumstances as they evolve and may resume normal hours of operation mid-April, depending on the situation. However, we may need to continue our current course of action for a longer period of time.
