Look what we just found outside our office πŸ’–!! Thank you to the person who wanted to bring some cheer to our community, it worked! #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses #kindnessrocks #keepyoursunnysideup @ Alamo Optometry

Every business owner or manager understands how much their team impacts not only the function of their business, but also the quality of their life. We are beyond grateful to have a team we can count on to pull together with us when things get rough (pandemic, anyone?). But to have a team that checks in and laughs together outside of work in a group text, celebrates and roots for each other, and enjoys the time we spend together is special. The sight of our staff gathered in front of us with roses and wine to celebrate our 20 year anniversary is something we won't forget. We truly appreciate the care they show for us, each other, and our patients. #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses #OurTeamRocks #grateful

We have a case of Fog Spray from our lens lab (which is Zeiss, a leader in optical lenses, including camera lenses, microscopes, etc) if you are experiencing the lens fog issue! We wanted a product for our lenses from a company we trust! They are $8 per kit (plus shipping if you want us to send it to you). If you are interested, please email us at [email protected] (please don't stop by the office as we are by appointment only!)! Also, helpful tip... Make sure your glasses are sitting on top of your mask so it helps to block the air flow. #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses #coronavirus #GlassesFog @ Alamo Optometry

Wow, we meant to post this earlier this week, but it's been a whirlwind! After much preparation and careful planning, we are excited to announce that our office is open again and returning to providing routine care! We have a very thorough protocol, however, with many new policies and processes in place, so please check out our website for more information and call before coming to the office as everything is by appointment only including ALL Optical services and orders/pickups/adjustments /repairs, etc. We are so thankful to be open to meet your needs once again. Thank you for supporting us! www.alamooptometry.com #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses #coronavirus #Open #CleaningProtocolsForDays 😁

While working hard on our Re-Open Protocol, we found this on the Chamber of Commerce site. Such great tips to support your local small businesses, who need your help more than ever! #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses #coronavirus #shopsmall #shoplocal

Info from our associations on safe contact lens wear (and a bit about glasses) from our associations. #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses #coronavirus #contactlens

We have been so busy filling contact lens orders emergency glasses replacements and repairs and emergency office visits, in addition to prepping new services and vendors and, most importantly, obtaining supplies and working on our Re-open Protocol so that we create the safest possible environment for our team and our patients when we are able to re-open! Our space will look different and we'll have new ways of doing things for a while, so please bear with us because we feel safety is the most important priority! We'll send out details by email and post here before we reopen. Thankfully, this was the sight that greeted us during an afternoon of work in an empty office. We can't wait to be able to see you all again! Until then, take care! #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses #coronavirus #simplejoys #SpringLove #WeMissOurTeamAndOurPatients

Updating our logo... checking so much off the list of Admin things we never get around to normally! We have so many exciting new things going on so that we can be better than ever when we re-open! Hope everyone is well!

This is the beauty of local business! One local business helping another! Dr. K has written an advertorial in Alamo and Danville Today for many years and we appreciate that they are showing their dedication to our community by spotlighting local businesses!

For eye care needs reach out the staff at Alamo Optometry. While the office is closed, Dr. K and Laura (his wife and co-manager), have been continuing to take care of business as much as possible, including addressing urgent eye health concerns, answering calls and emails, and shipping out orders to patients.

Dr. K. notes, "For contact lens patients, it is important to us that your eyes remain healthy and that you continue to wear your contact lenses as prescribed. We are happy to process direct to patient contacts orders to hold you over until we can reopen and get you in for your annual eye exam and contact lens evaluation. In addition, our distributor is currently offering to ship orders of 2 boxes or more of most contacts for free! While we can’t legally extend contact lens prescriptions due to state law, we understand that an exam simply isn’t an option available to you currently. Therefore, we are doing our best to meet your needs in the absence of state guidelines under these unprecedented circumstances, so email us if your contacts prescription has recently expired and we’ll figure out what we can do."

For those of you who typically order your contacts or glasses through their office, the staff thanks you for your support and trust! For those of you who often order through an online vendor, there is a special favor requested to help support this local business. Alamo Optometry would appreciate if you would consider ordering through them during this time and give them a chance to keep earning your business when they reopen. They are working hard to continue to serve our community in the best way possible in order to keep their business ready for when they can safely bring their staff back and fully serve you again!

The best way to contact them for questions or orders is by email at [email protected]. Status updates will also appear on their Instagram and Facebook accounts @alamooptometry, https://www.alamooptometry.com/

$130 Christmas commercial featuring store owner's toddler warms hearts across the internet

Here's the video, I referred to in my prior post. It got buried in my sentimentality 😁 https://edition.cnn.com/2019/12/04/uk/heartwarming-christmas-advert-intl-scli-gbr/index.html?fbclid=IwAR3Abm594pO0wDAS1R0NB5TLhh3rui5p7OJikYoRCUqz0u4BP9XRlOtQtfQ

edition.cnn.com Every Christmas, big companies and high street brands pump serious money into making their annual holiday TV commercial.

This commercial made me cry! We took over this practice when our kids were 2 and 5 and we've had so many days with the kids at the office since then! When they were little, we would bring blankets and they would hang out and read or play quietly in the back and when they were older, they would help us (just did inventory a couple weekends ago with one daughter). It's the nature of small, family run businesses and we think it's good for them to see us put our heart and soul into making our business thrive and take pride in our role in the community. This is a picture from that first Sunday when we got the keys and came in to get ready for owning a business on Monday! Check out this commercial, it's so sweet! https://edition.cnn.com/2019/12/04/uk/heartwarming-christmas-advert-intl-scli-gbr/index.html?fbclid=IwAR3Abm594pO0wDAS1R0NB5TLhh3rui5p7OJikYoRCUqz0u4BP9XRlOtQtfQ

Psssst... I don't think our team has noticed the old-fashioned peppermint mocha candy canes that Santa left them for all their hard work! The end of the year is such a busy time at our office with people getting eye exams and placing orders before their benefits and health savings accounts expire, so our amazing team deserves surprise treats to keep them going! Happy Thursday, Team! #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses #Decembertreats #stockinggoodies

Our awesome new line is ready for the holidays! Shwood is an innovative company out of Portland, Oregon that creates unique pieces, incorporating nature. They have wood frames and frames that showcase mushrooms, seashells, abalone, rose petals, mint and many more! Come check them out, they are amazing! #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses #Shwood #shwoodshop

We are thankful for our loved ones, our wonderful team, and the amazing community we are blessed to serve. Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love and happiness! #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses #thanksgiving #blessings #thankful

Mattel releases first deck of UNO in Braille

This is awesome! We love inclusivity and accessibility!
https://www.wric.com/news/u-s-world/mattel-releases-first-deck-of-uno-in-braille/

wric.com Middle schoolers at the Idaho School for the Deaf and the Blind are getting their hands on the first official braille UNO deck.

We are so excited to introduce one of our new lines, State Optical! These beautiful frames are manufactured in Chicago with amazing attention to quality and detail. Our whole team is trying to choose which ones we want, but Dr. K already has his first pair sent off to the lab for lenses 😁! #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses #stateopticalco

Yeah! We are open again! Power is back and we will be gratefully catching up today! Sorry for the inconvenience! #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses

[10/29/19]   We have been closed due to a power outage since Sunday because of a downed line. We are so sorry for the inconvenience! We don't know when we will be open again, but we are hoping for tomorrow! In the meantime, we are staying thankful for this minor inconvenience in comparison to what so many are going through. Be safe everyone!

Did you know that contact lens blister packs can't be recycled with most recycling programs? We've partnered with Terracycle and have just sent off our first big box to be recycled! We will happily accept empty blister packs to send, even if you aren't a patient of our office! One little way of doing our part! #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses #contactlens #recycle

Today was the last day of our ParaOptometric Appreciation Week, but we are grateful for our amazing team every week! We couldn't do it without them and it's a pleasure working with them every day to take care of our patients! We hope they know how important they are to us! #AlamoOptometry #DrK #glasses #paraoptometricweek #TeamworkMakesTheDreamWork
