To all of our patients, 

 Our highest priority is the safety of all of our patients, staff, and doctors.

Changes you will notice at your next office visit:

  • All patients and staff will be screened prior to entering with a non-contact thermometer to rule out any fever. Anyone with a fever, cough, shortness of breath, headache ache, chills, sore throat or new loss of taste or smell will not be permitted to enter the office.
  • All staff and patients will be required to wear masks while in the office.
  • To minimize the number of people in the office, please have family members/friends wait in the car or lobby unless absolutely necessary (e.g. Parent accompanying a minor).
  • All exam rooms, equipment, surfaces will be disinfected before and after use.
  • Protective guards have been installed at the front desk.
  • Your exam will be performed as expeditiously and efficiently as possible in order to minimize your exposure time in the office. However, you will still receive the same highest quality care as you are accustomed to receiving.
  • Frame selections will not be performed unassisted due to the fact that all frames require disinfection upon being touched. There may be some instances where frame selection will need to be done at a different time. 
  • We highly encourage you to perform the wide view retinal scan during your examination. In many instances, this will avoid the need to dilate as frequently.* The co-pay for this service is $39.


    *Note:  Patients who will be dilated regularly will be those with systemic problems (patients with diabetes, hypertension, etc), high myopia, those with and/or at risk for retinal problems, history of ocular problems, first time and older patients.
