– Appointment Required – Mask Required – Please Come in Alone –

We are happy to share we are now available for ALL your eye care needs, by appointment.  As always, our top priority is your health, safety and comfort.  We want to act responsibly to protect those with weak immune systems, be respectful of those who are fearful, and help us move more quickly to get back to a life that resembles our own precious version of normal.

If you are visiting our office for eyewear repairs, adjustments, selections or pick-up, we ask that you call our office in advance to schedule an appointment with one of our talented opticians.   Once you arrive for optical services, come on in with your mask on and head straight back to the optical counter.

Anyone entering our office must have an appointment.  You will be appropriately screened for COVID-19 exposure and symptoms.  You will be required to wear a mask while in our office.  Our staff will also be wearing masks at all times.  If you feel you cannot wear a mask, we will kindly ask that you reschedule your appointment for a time when we feel it is safe to go without.
