As the COVID-19 (AKA coronavirus) pandemic has evolved over the past few weeks, we have done all that we can to support the health and safety of both our patients and staff. To stay true to that, we’ve made the difficult decision to follow recommendations we have received from the American Optometric Association, The NJ Society of Optometric Physicians, the CDC and State and local government. We are limiting our operations to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are postponing routine eyecare appointments for at least the next 2-3 weeks. We will be contacting patients who have appointments in March and early April to provide information about rescheduling. We will continue to care for patients with urgent eyecare needs.
Temporarily, we will staff the office with a doctor and a staff member to handle communications, business deliveries and pickups, and take care of emergent issues. Hours of operation will be Mon thru Fri, 9 to 3. Our website will remain fully functional for ordering contacts and making appointments.
If you have contacts or glasses to pick up, we’d prefer to arrange for curbside pickup to limit the traffic in the office. Give us a call when you pull up front and we can bring your glasses or contacts to you.
We are optimistic that we will know more about what to expect in the weeks to come. We hope to update our schedule and operations as soon as possible.
Although our office will be closed to patients, except by arrangement, we will be available to answer questions by phone, email, Facebook Messenger or text. We are also in the process of setting up a Telemedicine portal where you can access one of our doctors through an app on your phone to take care of some medical eyecare needs.
Thank you for being a valued patient of Marlton Eye Associates and for your continued support.
Your health and safety is our priority.
