Dear Valued Patients and Patrons,
We at Columbus Optical value your health above all else, especially now in these uncertain times. As of last night (3/17/2020), the CDC and the American Optometric Association has recommended that we as healthcare providers and you as patients postpone any and all routine eye exams at this time. https://www.aoa.org/coronavirus
At Columbus Optical, we plan on following this recommendation. As of now, we will be rescheduling all routine/annual eye exams until April 6, 2020 and only remaining open for the treatment of emergency/urgent care. This may be subject to change as events transpire. We will remain open for emergency care and previously scheduled post-operative appointments. Dr. Hernacki will be reducing her in office hours from 9 AM to 2 PM but will additionally remain on call if urgent care issues require treatment outside these hours. Dr. Hernacki and Dr. Mangas will also encourage the use of telemedicine (video appointment, phone appointment) to treat urgent care issues if applicable.
As of now, our doors will remain open for glasses/contact lens pickups and emergency glasses repairs. Our staff will be available to answer the phones at our normal posted hours unless the CDC recommendations change. Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation with these protocols going forward. We will keep you updated as events continue to unfold.
