In compliance with Governor Newsom's statewide order, we will be closing our office to non-emergent matters in efforts to reduce the spread of virus. Our phone line will remain open for patients with an emergency, which includes:
Since Governor Newsom did not provide an end date to the statewide order, it is difficult to determine our schedule for the next coming weeks. Please give us a call at 949-951-1424 for clarification on any questions you may have. Thank you for your cooperation and your trust in our office.
In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking precautions in mitigating the spread of the virus. Some of the precautions we observe on a normal basis, such as washing our hands, sanitizing work areas, and disinfecting our equipment. We are also now disinfecting every pair of frames so that it is sterile before a patient puts them on.
As a healthcare operation, we are open to patients during this difficult time so that we may meet their visual needs. However, we advise patients who are exhibiting symptoms (such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath) to reschedule until they are feeling well. We advise those who have recently traveled to affected areas or countries to do the same. If you are over 70 years old, immuno-compromised, or have underlying conditions, please reschedule as well.
Thank you for your cooperation and your trust in our office.
As part of his commitment to stay current with new contact lens advancements, Dr. Dugue recently went to a learning seminar at Johnson & Johnson Vision Care at Jacksonville, Florida. At the seminar, he learned about new ongoing contact lens studies and was able to tour the robotics facility that manufactures contact lenses. In fact, he and Dr. Chi are currently investigating visual performance with J&J's Acuvue Transition lenses.
In addition, Dr. Chi attended a 5-hour seminar over the weekend and had the opportunity to learn about new advancements in LASIK and cataract surgery. The Foundation for Ophthalmic Medical Education organized more than five speakers to educate a large group of optometrists.
