To our patient family,
If you will be needing a supply of contact lenses in the next 2 to 3 months, we are recommending that you order them now. We are closed to all non-urgent patients at this time; however, we are available by phone at 916-797-6747 for contact lens orders. We are offering to extend your contact lens prescriptions and on a case by case basis for up to 3 months without an evaluation. We aren’t sure how long our distributor will continue to fill orders, so if you think you will need contact lenses, we suggest ordering them ASAP. They will be delivered to your home or office with free shipping.
There is so much information out there, some true and some false, that we wanted to make sure you are getting accurate information. At this time there is no recommendation to discontinue contact lens wear. However, the CDC recommends that we refrain from touching our eyes, nose and mouth. As a contact lens wear that is difficult.
To avoid possible infection, we have always recommended washing your hands thoroughly before handling your contact lenses. We are now recommending that you wash your hands both before and after putting contact lenses in and again before and after removal. It is also recommended that you follow all manufacturer instructions for proper cleaning and disinfection listed on your contact lens solution bottle, if you are still concerned about disinfection we recommend changing to a hydrogen peroxide solution system such as Clear Care. If you do so, be sure to read the directions carefully prior to use.
Our temporary office hours for ordering and non-urgent issues are Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 3 pm by phone 916-797-6747
