|Our careful and gradual return to care: To ensure a safe environment, we are heeding state and federal mandates and taking many precautions including: Staff must take their temperature before work. Patients are screened by phone before arrival to assess their risk factors. Providers, staff, and patients must wear masks. Patients are asked to bring a mask or face covering. When they do not, one is provided. Temperatures are taken of all patients and visitors upon arrival. Strict hand hygiene is practiced, and surfaces are regularly disinfected. The number of individuals in any given space is reduced to allow ample social distancing. Unless there is a true need for a caregiver, accompanying guests are asked to wait safely in their car.|

Children's Eye Heath
Children are susceptible to a host of vision and eye problems such as injury, infection and increased near-sightedness. In support of Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month in August, the American Academy of Ophthalmology provides information to the public that can help protect and preserve a child’s eye health for life.
Optometrists encourage parents to include a trip to the optometrist on the list of well-baby check-ups. Assessments at six to twelve months of age can determine healthy development of vision. Early detection of eye conditions is the best way to ensure an infant has healthy vision for successful development - now and in the future. Under this program, AOA optometrists provide a no-cost comprehensive eye and vision assessment for infants within the first year of life regardless of a family’s income or access to insurance coverage.
