COVID -19 Vision Resources

While the focus of our world may be changing, our mission to you has not. Are you in need of a dilated eye exam? We are here to help you maneuver your vision health, safely. Currently, the majority of eye care providers are only seeing urgent or emergent patients. As the state begins to open up and regulations change routine eye services will be offered.

Urgent care is defined as medical care provided for illnesses or injuries that require prompt attention but are typically not of such seriousness as to require the services of an emergency room. Emergency care is defined as medical care for conditions requiring prompt medical attention due to a sudden change in the eye or visual health.  If you’re uncertain whether or not your condition is urgent or emergent, contact your eye care provider (ophthalmologist or optometrist) immediately.
