Coronavirus  Protocols For EyeCare

Information may change regularly. Please check for updates.

Can I still wear my contact lenses? Should I still wear them?

-Many people are concerned about contact lens wear during these uncertain times. Your contacts are safe to wear assuming you follow the standard cleaning and disinfecting procedures as per usual. However, if you are able to wear glasses you may consider this temporary alternative. Glasses may also help act as a shield against contagions and decrease the percentage we touch our face or eyes directly.


What if I am due for my Routine Eye Exam Now?

Unfortunately, our office is closed due to mandates by both the State of California and City of Los Angeles. While we are not seeing patients for their comprehensive exams at this time, we are here for any eye health emergencies. Ocular Emergencies include: eye infections, injuries, and extreme pain.


Can I get Coronavirus in my eye?

No.

Health officials believe 1%-3% of those who have contracted Coronavirus may develop viral Pink Eye, or Conjunctivitis as a potential symptom. Those are low numbers. This means if you or someone you care for wakes up with that ever so lovely crusty, pink and sore eye, don't panic! Having Pink Eye does not mean having Coronavirus.  


Can I use eye drops?

Yes.

You want to practice safe and proper hygiene like you always do:

*Wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.

*Make sure the dropper is clean. You can clean the top with rubbing alcohol as needed. 

*Do not touch dropper to you eyelids or face
