We want to thank everyone for their patience during this unusual time. We have now opened for our normal hours to serve all eye care needs. We do ask that you wear a mask when you enter our building. Unless you are a parent of a child or a caretaker, we are also asking you to leave friends and family at home or in the car unless they have business in the building as well. In an effort to keep physical distance guidelines, you may be asked to wait in your car for a phone call. Thanks again for your patience, and we look forward to serving you.
