Since our last email, Governor Gavin Newsom has ordered Californians to “shelter in place” as a means of preventing the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. The California Optometric Association has deemed optometry and routine eye visits as non-essential. Therefore, we made the difficult decision to close our doors in compliance with the Governor's orders. We believe that this ordinance is the best chance our state has at flattening the curve and getting back to normal.
However, we wanted to reach out and let you know that we will do our best to still be there for you.
Reach out to us if you need to place contact lens orders and we may get them drop shipped to your home. Johnson & Johnson is offering free shipping for our patients, from March 20 until June 30, 2020.
Additionally, if you find yourself needing a new pair of glasses before the shelter is lifted, please don’t hesitate to contact us and schedule an appointment.
• Cleansing Product:
Since COVID-19 can spread through your eyes, nose, and mouth, we are looking to bring in some new exciting products to help your face stay clean throughout the day. Stay tuned to our website and social media pages to keep up to date on this and other new releases!
• Expiring Insurance Benefits:
If you have any insurance benefits or FSA (Flexible Savings Accounts) expiring this month, don't hesitate to reach out to us so we can set up an appointment so your benefits don't go to waste.
As you can imagine, small businesses all over the world are hurting as a direct result of the current situation. Small businesses are essential to our communities as $0.67 of every dollar spent stays within the community. During these difficult times, consider supporting our local small businesses if you can.
• Order takeout from your favorite local restaurants
• Leave a review for local businesses
• Purchase a gift card to use when they are able to open
• Pay with plastic when possible
• Shop small online
• Consider small before the big guys
Thank you for being so understanding with the hard decisions we have had to make this last week. We so grateful to serve our community and appreciate your continued support as we navigate through this together.
Be safe and stay healthy,
Esther, Mary, and Michael
