Will COVID-19 affect my eyes?2020-03-21T13:07:21-04:00

The COVID-19 virus enters the body through portals such as the mouth, nose and eyes.  It is possible that the COVID-19 can be transmitted through aerosol contact with the conjunctiva and several reports suggest that the virus can cause conjunctivitis.  To avoid potential infection, we advise that you do not touch your face or have any contact with your eyes.  Additionally, you should wash your hands and face frequently during the course of the day and every time you return from outdoors or a public space.

When will regular operations resume?2020-03-21T13:06:57-04:00

Regular operations will resume when COVID-19 no longer poses a grave health risk to our patients and staff.  The situation is fluid and management will monitor the situation daily together with adherence to requirements of the national health and governmental authorities.  We are also guided by a team of ophthalmologists and optometrists who provide professional suggestions towards the preservation of health and safety of our patients and employees as it relates to the business of vision care.

What is meant by ‘emergency and critical vision care’?2020-03-21T13:06:43-04:00

Emergency services include filling of prescriptions for replacement spectacles or broken spectacles for patients whose normal activities are severely disrupted by not having their spectacles.  Critical vision care are those cases where severe vision problems such as sustained blurred vision, eye pain and similar conditions require the urgent evaluation by an optometrist.  Regular eye examinations and routine checks and purchases will be deferred to the resumption of regular operations.
