Dear Valued Patient, our office is OPEN and We’re Here for YOU! We never closed during the COVID-19 shutdown, we just practiced safety protocols.
You can view our safety protocols here.

At Optometric Associates, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern. Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.

Our office is providing ALL routine eye care services, including eye emergency care, glaucoma management, dry eye management, contact lens examinations, glasses examinations, medication refills, eyeglass repairs, and the dispensing of contact lenses.
