Also, for all optical repairs, pickups and adjustments they will continue to be by appointment only until further notice. Please call our office to set up those times if you are in need of any optical assistance.

We will continue to wear appropriate PPE and ask you to consider as well when visiting our offices.  Please limit companions, we have a limited number of people allowed in our buildings until the order is modified. Social distancing must be enforced while visiting our offices as well. In addition, please visit our website at www.primaryeyecare.org and download patient forms to be completed before your appointment. If you are unable to download forms, please call our office and we will mail them to you.  

To our vision therapy patients, please continue to be patient with us as we are still developing the proper and safe therapy guidelines. We will be contacting our therapy patients in the coming weeks.
