COVID-19 Update:

Your health is our top priority. In response to the guidance provided by our local, state, and federal authorities and many national medical associations, we will be limiting our practice to urgent and emergency cases only to mirror the shelter in place order. Our office will be closed through at least April 11, 2020 and/or until directed to resume normal operations by state officials. We want to do our part to help manage the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Should your eye care needs require our emergency attention please call 719-574-7000 and listen for the on call doctor’s number.

If you have recently purchased eyeglasses or contacts, we will provide free shipping to your address of record. Comprehensive eye care and glasses adjustments/fittings will be available after the shelter in place order has been lifted.

If you have non-urgent questions or concerns, you may call and leave a message at 719-574-7000. Messages will be checked daily.

Stay tuned for the latest information on our status and additional guidance on our response to this healthy crisis. Stay safe and healthy.
