COVID-19 aka Corona Virus
COVID-19 is currently identified in over 102 countries. With all the media coverage, it is important to be mindful, not frightful. Be prepared, not scared. Hysteria and toilet paper hoarding is not the solution to this pandemic. It is definitely not an excuse for hatred and racism. Please follow the CDC guidelines to keeping you and your families safe. Our office will be open with additional disinfecting precautions to serve those with visual and eye health needs. We don't recommend visiting a hospital or ER for eye health related problems at this time. Many eye care clinics are equipped to treat minor urgent eye care problems. Below are links to the CDC and common symptoms.
