emergencies. We will continue to monitor the situation closely to determine when it is appropriate to re-open.

home except for getting medical care.

We are so lucky to have amazing patients, sending the luck of the EYE-ris to everyone! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

[03/15/20]   To Our Patients,

Out of an abundance of caution, we are taking extra precautions during this time to protect our patients and staff.

Steps our Practice is taking:
- Any team member who is sick has been told to stay home.
- We sanitize all equipment and patient contact surfaces after
every use and again at the end of the day.
- Our team members wash their hands after contact with each
patient and throughout the course of the day.
- We have sanitizing stations in our office.
- We are doing our best to limit our schedule in order to
minimize the number of people in our office at the same time.

To our Patients:
- If you have recently (within the past 14 days) traveled
outside of the US or to any area with significant community
spread (currently Washington state, California, and New
York), or have had close contact with someone who has, or if
you have a fever, cough or other symptoms of acute
respiratory distress, please call our office to reschedule your
- We are asking all our patients who are considered high risk,
to postpone their eye appointments. This includes anyone
over the age of 60, pregnant or nursing mothers, and
anyone who is immunocompromised.
- We do expect this to be an ongoing situation in our area for
an extended period of time and do not want our patients to
neglect their eye care needs during this time.
- Please call us with any questions or concerns, and if you feel
it is best for you or your family member to reschedule your
appointment, feel free to do so, without penalty.


The Display of the Future Might Be in Your Contact Lens

Mojo Vision created a prototype of a smart contact lens that will allow users to see their schedules, view notifications of incoming messages, and even control music playback! This futuristic eyewear won't be on the market for another few years and the first release of these contacts will be targeted to individuals with low vision.

wired.com Mojo Vision's prototypes can enhance your vision or show you your schedule—right from the surface of your eyes.

Some often feel that good vision means good eye health but that is not always the case. Getting a routine eye exam can ensure your vision not only stays clear but it can also keep your eyes and body healthy. Save your vision with an eye exam!

Early detection is key to preventing and treating Glaucoma to keep you safe from getting blind. Save your sight by scheduling your routine eye exam with us. Visit our website or contact us to schedule!
