IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING OUR MASK POLICY

________________

Recently there have been announcements among various government leaders on the topic of whether it continues to be appropriate to wear masks in very specific settings, and asking that businesses such as ours continue to review our public safety and mask requirements. As a business providing important health care services to the community, we are committed to top quality care that also prevents the spread of any illness, including COVID-19.  While we respect everyone’s personal choices surrounding this matter, the nature of our work with our patients require that we work in close proximity of each other and therefore we believe it is in the best interest of our business to continue wearing masks until further notice.  These precautions are appropriate given the demographics of many of our patients that place them in what medical experts consider “at risk” groups that are important to us to keep safe and well.
 
We will revisit this policy once we have more time and information to evaluate the impact the executive order has on our industry and community.  In the meantime, we respectfully ask that while you are providing us the privilege of caring for you and your loved ones, that you please respect our mask policy. Masks are required on every individual in the building, covering the mouth and nose. 
 
We understand that this has been a trying time for all involved, and we are all ready to get back to normal as soon as possible. We are working hard to create processes that will allow us to do so shortly. We are confident that within a short time, if we can all work together, we will return to normal. We are very excited to see your smiling faces again, soon.

Eye Exam Can Save Your Life By Emilio Justo on June 09, 2017

 

Hypertension (high blood pressure) is known as a "silent" disease because its victims often lack symptoms. It affects approximately 65 million Americans, and only 34% of them have it under good control.

During a comprehensive eye examination, your eye doctor checks for many subtle changes in the retina resulting from high blood pressure, a condition also known as hypertensive retinopathy. These changes to the retina may include: 
  • narrowing of the small blood vessels in the retina
  • arteries pressing down on veins and flame-shaped hemorrhages
  • among other complications

Some cases of hypertensive retinopathy can threaten your eyesight. As the walls of your arteries thicken, the veins close to your retina become pinched and your eye health is compromised. Vision loss occurs when blood obstructs the retina, the eye is deprived of oxygen or the macula swells. This obstruction can be temporary or permanent and can cause vision loss when a blockage disrupts blood flow in the eye.

Education is key to prevention. We want you to know that we care not only about your eye health, but your overall health as well.

Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns and don’t forget to schedule your regular care exam for early detection and optimum health.
We look forward to seeing you soon!  Contact us here.
