Your safety is our greatest concern during the COVID 19 outbreak.


Your vision, your safety and the safety of our employees is our greatest concern.  

Anticipated questions:

1.   Are you open?   Yes!    At this time, we do not anticipate any change in hours.  If we do, we will publish this information in advance.  

2.  Is it safe to have an eye exam at your facility?  Yes.  We are implementing strict protocols to ensure your safety during this outbreak while still providing comprehensive eye care.  All instruments are cleaned prior to use and additional cleaning is being done at this time.  In addition, we are providing seating outside while waiting for your eye exam or picking up glasses/contacts.  Additionally, we have multiple sinks for you to wash your hands around the facility.

3.  Is it okay to wear contact lenses during this pandemic?  Experts agree that contact lens wear is safe.  However, glasses are the safest option due to less touching of your face and eyes, and less possible ways to get infected.   1 Day contact lenses are safer than reusable contact lenses.   If you do not have a current prescription in glasses, we do provide fast same day service (often not through your insurance) and low cost options.  

If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact the general manager, Jennifer Picone at 951-684-7822 x 307.
