To Our Valued Patients,

With the evolving situation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and under the guidelines of the Health Officer of the Alameda and Contra-Costa Counties, our offices are open to provide eye and vision care.

Please keep in mind that in order to maintain social distancing protocols and to limit further transmission of the virus, we will be working with a reduced staff and seeing a fewer number of patients as compared to our “normal” schedule. Priority will be given to the most urgent medical cases. We will be implementing a number of measures (including altered check-in/check-out procedures, limiting the number of patients in the office and waiting room, face covering for all persons, temperature screening, etc) that will change your experience in the office. In addition, we will be ramping up our already strict disinfection policies and we will continue to monitor and abide by all local, state and, federal guidelines. Please bear with us through this new reality as these changes are designed to protect you and our staff.

We hope to see you soon and appreciate your trust in us to continue to meet your eye care needs. Stay safe and stay healthy!

Halloween Madness in San Francisco and San Jose

As part of the Halloween festivities this year in the San Francisco Bay Area, I visited the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, CA for the flashlight tours. While I enjoyed the activity, as did those who went with me, the supposed haunted mansion was less than frightening. The Winchester Mystery House is one of the historic sites of San Jose and each year thousands of San Jose residents and visitors to San Jose walk through the tours.

During the flashlight tours, the guides take you through the house with only a flashlight as a light source. Unfortunately, the groups are large and they leave every 7 minutes. While I enjoyed seeing this historic San Jose landmark, it was not the Halloween Frightfest I had hoped it would be.

Tonight I will be going to San Francisco, CA. I have been Mission before on Halloween night and this year will go back. There are always thousands of San Francisco and Bay Area residents who attend the celebration, dressed up as pirates, witches, or other Halloween Costume. This makes San Francisco an exciting place to visit for Halloween night.

Look forward to seeing any others who will attend. Good luck and Happy Halloween. Remember to be careful.
