COVID19 update - We have continued to prioritize the eye care needs of our patients and the safety of our staff/patients during this pandemic virus time.  Starting in May 2020 we have continued  to provide patient care to better serve our community, while following the CDC guidelines for best practices for safety.  Past processes include staff vaccinations, masks for all staff/patients, air purifiers, and frequent hand sanitizer use with disinfecting of our exam rooms for every patient visit.  Starting in April 2023 we have removed mandatory mask requirements in the outpatient clinic setting but will continue to utilize enhanced cleaning and air purification.  Masks may still be worn by staff and patients if indicated or recommended.
