[03/24/20]   Dear Valued Patient,

At Eye on Evanston, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern.

Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.

As always during the peak of flu season, and with the growing concerns around the Coronavirus, we have taken extra measures to increase frequent cleaning and have provided additional training and precautions to our staff to help keep their health and yours safe.

As a reminder, if you have fallen ill, have traveled abroad, or had close contact with someone who has traveled abroad within the past 14 days and are due to be seen for an appointment, please let our office know before coming in to see us. We will be happy to change your appointment to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.

We love ensuring our patients can see clearly and we are excited to invite our patients to a private advance screening event on January 8 - Bringing Clarity to the Big Screen. Come visit our clinic and find out how you and a guest can join us and watch The Song of Names, featuring Academy Award Nominees Tim Roth and Clive Owen. #DRLensesBigScreen #TheSongofNames
