The suspension of non-essential optometric practice has been called for. Read the statement here.
Mountain Eye Care regrets to announce that the American Optometric Association, in conjunction with the Center for Disease Control has called for the suspension of any non-emergency services in the interest of helping curb the spread of COVID-19. We are postponing all exams that do not meet emergency triage requirements at this time. These triage requirements must include:
-SUDDEN LOSS OF VISION
-SUDDEN PAIN WITH REDNESS
-SUDDEN ONSET FLASHES/FLOATERS
-SOME INJURY/LIGHT TRAUMA
-FOREIGN BODY REMOVAL
We will still be available, BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, to dispense glasses and contacts that have been delivered to the store. We are working to provide other resources and we will communicate this via mountaineyecare.com. If you’re a long time patient, We love you. We need you. Please play along. We only hope our actions reflect your best interest. Phones will be limited, so feel free to reach out to MOUNTAINEYECAREOPTICIAN@GMAIL.COM to chat with us. Thank you.
