To Our Patients,
Out of an abundance of caution, Scott Eye Care will be closed to yearly wellness eye examinations through at least 3/29/20.
We will only be catering to eye emergencies; we do not want your eye injuries and urgencies to go to the Emergency Room!
We are also reducing our office hours (emergencies only!) to 10am-3pm, during which we will have minimal to no staff.
Although our office staff is vigilant about following all CDC and AOA guidelines, sanitizing all surfaces and eyewear, disinfecting all equipment, and common areas (reception area, bathroom, door handles, etc.), and also wearing masks and gloves, we nonetheless wish to avoid risking the health of our most vulnerable patients with unnecessary exposure to others who may be contagious but asymptomatic.
In an effort to further protect our patients and staff, we ask that you all are mindful of the following precautions:
If you are sick, please stay home. If you have had contact with someone who is ill or are caring for someone at risk, please defer your appointment. Remember: emergencies only!
If you have an ocular emergency or any urgent issue –please call us to schedule a consult. We will arrange an appointment so that minimal or no other patients are in the office at the same time.
Some examples of eye emergencies include eye injuries, loss of or sudden change in vision, acute red or painful eyes, foreign bodies in the eye, and more.
If you or your child are out of contacts or have broken or lost your glasses, and cannot get to our office, we can almost always fabricate and ship a replacement set, as we have your measurements on file (this applies only if your prescription is up-to-date).
Once it is deemed safe to open our doors to everyone again, we will open many more appointment slots to accommodate your needs that were put on hold.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this difficult time as we all work together to keep our community healthy and safe.
In just over 6 years, I’ve grown Scott Eye Care from three employees and zero patients to ten employees and over 16,000 patients thanks to support from Scott and all of its surrounding communities. It is absolutely heartbreaking for me to make this decision. However, your overall health—not just your eye health—has always been the very center of what we do.
Be safe, STAY HOME, and please accept my apologies for any inconveniences.
Dr. Ryan Cazares
