To all of our patients and families,

As an essential health care provider, we are open and here for your eye care
needs! While we have been seeing priority and urgent care visits during the
COVID-19 crisis, we have helped numerous patients receive the eye care they
needed and avoid overburdening urgent care clinics and hospital ER’s. We
have now been given clearance by the CDC and AOA to begin seeing routine
vision appointments once again. We will begin opening our schedule to all vision
care needs as of May 15th. If you are overdue for your annual visit, we encourage
you to text, email or call early as we anticipate a back log and our schedule may
fill quickly.

The safety and health of our patients and our staff continues to be our top priority
as we learn to operate in a new environment where scrupulous disinfection and
social distancing is the new norm. Your visit may feel VERY different than in the
past. We will be employing best practices recommended by the CDC including
employee health screening daily, rigorous hand washing or sanitization
guidelines for both patients and staff, having all patients and staff wear face
masks or coverings, virtual check in and curbside waiting room, limiting the
number of patients in the office at one time, employing protective plexiglass
barriers, expediting checkout and using personal protective equipment when
indicated.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this uncertainty
together as a community. We look forward to seeing your smiling eyes again
soon!

Sincerely,

Your Vision Care Group Family
