Coronavirus Update 4/1/2020

Dear Patients,

We now live and practice in a critically different medical reality—a rapidly evolving viral pandemic that is projected to, if unchecked, kill millions of Americans and tens of millions around the world. Each of us has a societal responsibility to not function as a vector of a potentially fatal disease—and one for which a widely available treatment or vaccine does not currently exist.

Understanding that, and in keeping with the recommendations of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, for the time being, our office will only provide treatment to those patients requiring urgent or emergent care.  All appointments scheduled for the upcoming week have been cancelled.  You do not need to call to cancel your appointment.  Additionally, any patients scheduled for elective surgery, or whom have had recent surgery are in a holding pattern until we have further direction from the Commonwealth. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you up-to-date for future appointments.

Going forward, staff will be present in the office each weekday morning (8:30am to 11:00 am) to answer your calls. Patients who have had recent surgery will be individually contacted to arrange for follow-up care. When the office is closed, your doctors will be available via the answering service to address any medical concerns, and schedule an emergency visit should it be necessary.

Fortunately we are still able to efficiently process contact lens orders.  If you are in need of contact lenses, feel free to call the office or use our website.

Please stay in and stay safe.  We miss you all and hope you are doing as well as possible during this difficult time.
