We are so excited to let everyone know that we are open again for routine eye care. For everyone’s protection we will be spacing out appointments to help with social distancing and to allow for extra disinfecting between patients. For now, we are requiring patients to wear some form of face covering to be in the office. We thank everyone for their patience during these ever-changing times.
