COVID Update November 2020

Due to the increase in COVID cases in Ohio, Governor DeWine has issued a new mandate for all businesses effective Wednesday, November 11, 2020.

Face covering are now mandatory anywhere you go in Ohio with the penalty of forced closure for not meeting mandate.  As such, we are now requiring all patients to wear a face covering in all of our offices.  If you have an exemption from your doctor, please present it to our staff when you arrive.  

All visits will be ‘by appointment only’ and you simply need to call the office you are visiting ahead of time to schedule a pick up/repair of your completed glasses or to schedule an appointment.  We are doing our best to have contact lens prescriptions delivered directly to your home, however, if needed, please schedule those pickups as well. 

All of our staff continue to wear masks, disinfect all equipment and frames between patients and observe the 6’ for 15 minute guidelines when possible.  

This pandemic has certainly not made it easy to exceed your expectations when you visit any of our offices and we are very appreciative of your understanding the inherent difficulties it has created.  We are ready to get back to normal sooner than later, but, in the meantime please know we are doing everything possible to make your visit as safe and efficient as possible.
