Weather, Weekend, Weirdness

What a weird weekend! We had rain, snow, wind, and then a beautiful Sunday with nearly perfect weather! I hope everyone got out to enjoy yesterday’s sunshine. It was refreshing and a fantastic way to start another week of unknowns.

As far as our clinic office hours this week, we are still going to be closed this week. The CDC still recommends optometrists postpone eye care visits while prioritizing urgent and emergency visits. Our doctors will be available for emergencies and we are also offering video based visits for urgent matters. We still have staff checking voicemails and also our Facebook messages. We also have staff available during our normally staffed hours if you need to pick up a contact lens or glasses order. our doctors are watching all reports closely and making choices as this situation changes. We want the very best for our patients and our staff – and we want to be part of keeping our community safe during this outbreak. It’s really hard as a small business that community members have relied on for a very long time to make the decision to remain closed another week; but we feel like this is the safest choice that we can make right now.

If you feel you have a vision-threatening condition including:

  • Pain
  • Sudden vision loss
  • Rapid vision changes
  • The appearance of flashing lights
  • New large floaters

Please call us: 605-624-2020. Leave us a message and we will respond.

Our staff is having Zoom conferences twice a day to keep everyone on the same page and to make sure everyone is feeling well. We are our own little family, and we miss being able to work together in real life right now, but it’s really nice to get to see everyone’s smiling faces! No one has done anything embarrassing on Zoom yet, but rest assured, I am ready to take a screenshot to share with you if it happens! We are still laughing and having fun with each other…just in a different way!

We hope you are all still finding ways to connect to the people who matter to you! Stay in touch, smile, laugh and make the best of this weird, crazy time!
