As of Tuesday evening, March 17th, the CDC has recommended that all routine eye care be deferred until further notice, in order to slow the transmission of COVID-19 through our community.
What does this mean?
1) If you are scheduled for an annual eye examination we will tentatively reschedule you starting April 6th.
2) If you need to replace glasses or contact lenses and need an extension on your prescription, please contact us and we will assist you in obtaining some until you can come in for a visit.
3) If you are running out of a medication please contact us and we can transmit a refill electronically to your pharmacy.
4) If you have an ocular emergency we are, as always, available to help you at any time. Call or text 205-332-3935. If no one answers, please leave a message and we will return your call.
The CDC has many resources. Arming yourself and your family with clear information will help you avoid undue stress during this time.
