Steps We Are Taking to Keep You Safe

Safety is our utmost concern. Rest assured that as medical providers, we are uniquely positioned to deliver high-quality care while minimizing exposure to infection. Please be aware that we are taking special steps to ensure your safety and comfort.​​​

 Our Patients


  • To minimize the number of patients in our waiting rooms, patients may be asked to wait in their cars after checking in with our front desk agents. Patients will then receive a text "page" when our technicians and doctors are ready for them.

  • We are taking extra precautions to pre-screen all patients prior to their arrival. We are rescheduling anyone who does not meet our stringent health guidelines.

  • Patients must bring their own mask that covers your nose and mouth. Gaiter, bandana, or scarf type masks are not acceptable.

  • Everyone must be wearing a standard mask BEFORE they enter any of our facilities or optical shops.

  • A series of question will be asked and temperatures may be taken, depending on the response.

  • Those who are accompanying patients will be asked to wait in their vehicle, unless they are needed to answer questions. We will text or call companions when the patient is ready to be picked up at the main entrance.

  • If a companion of a patient needs to enter the facility, they must undergo the same health screening as patients following all applicable safety measures.
