[03/23/20]   To Our Valued Patients and Community:

We are committed to the cleanliness of our practice and creating a safe environment for our patients, team, and community. We wish to ensure everyone that we are taking every precaution in our day to day operations to limit risks and reduce the spread of the virus in our community.

After much contemplation our office has made the decision to modify our eye care services going forward. We have closely followed the information released by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). In accordance with new CDC
recommendations, all routine eye exams are postponed until further notice. We believe that these precautions are necessary and important to the health of our team, patients, and community.

To alleviate potential overflow in emergency rooms and urgent care centers, we want our community to be aware that we are available for all your emergent eye issues that may arise. This includes, eye pain, eye infections, possible foreign bodies, scratches on the eye, and any new onset of flashes of light or floaters.

Starting Tuesday, March 24th, we will be open for limited hours with essential staff only. Patients will be able to pick-up their current glasses and contact lens orders, but we will utilize a curbside pick-up. Our office doors will remain locked, and we request that you call to have access to the office for scheduled appointments or to curbside pick up glasses and contacts. If you prefer, we can mail your glasses and contacts directly to you.

We were able to work out an arrangement with our vendors and as few as two boxes can be sent to you at no charge. We realize that this may be an inconvenience, however, patient safety is the utmost priority.

Contacts: If you are in need of contact lenses and your prescription has expired, our doctors will provide a temporary 90-day extension of contact lens prescriptions for our current contact lens patients.

Glasses: If you are in urgent need of replacement glasses due to loss/breakage, we will continue to place eyeglass orders. If your eyeglass prescription has expired, our doctors may provide an extension of your most recent eyeglass prescription, or we may determine a new prescription when needed.

Appointment Protocol: If you have an appointment for medical or emergency eye care or optical services, we ask you to please:
Notify us prior to your visit if you have (or have had contact with anyone having) any signs of fever or respiratory illness or any international travel recently.

Attend your appointment alone, or when necessary you may have 1 person/driver accompany you. All other individuals should remain at home (or in your vehicle).
Utilize the hand washing stations.

Rest assured that we are diligently sanitizing every area of the office that comes in contact with anyone (patient or staff) and that we are prohibiting employees in the office if they have or been in contact with anyone having any sign of illness whatsoever.

We will assess and adapt our hours of operations as needed and will update you regarding any changes to our business practices moving forward.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. We appreciate your cooperation with the new measures being taken during this challenging time, and we are grateful for your trust in us as your eye care provider!

Did you know that women are more likely to develop eye issues, vision problems, and blindness? In honor of Women’s Eye Health and Safety Month here are five tips for optimal eye health and safety:�
1. Throw away expired makeup and old brushes, especially those made for your eyes. This can avoid infections and eye irritation.�
2. Always wear sunglasses. Protect your eyes from harmful UV radiation from the sun- even in the winter. �
3. Eat a healthy diet rich in leafy greens and exercise regularly. Nutrition and exercise can have a tremendous impact on your eye health and your overall health. Oh, and stop smoking!�
4. Know your risk factors. It’s important to know about common eye diseases and which ones you are at risk for. Make sure you know your family history especially if there are diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma or diabetes in the family. �
5. Schedule regular eye exams. Regular eye exams lead to overall eye health, great vision and early detection and treatment of disease - which can save your vision.

Did you know? One of the reasons cited for why pirates used to wear a gold earring is because they thought it improved their vision. They believed that precious metals had magical healing powers that would improve and even cure bad eyesight.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the loss of vision in the center of the field of vision. It is a leading cause of vision loss among Americans 60 years of age and older. Although AMD doesn’t cause blindness, it is the most common cause of low vision. Low vision is a condition in which standard eyeglasses and vision correction methods cannot provide sufficient vision. Therefore patients require special low vision aids to help them perform functions of daily living such as reading, driving, and recognizing people or items.

Strawberries and whip cream... no place but West Oaks TSO! Happy Valentines Day! ❤️

Happy Valentines Day to all of our patients, staff, family and friends!
