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!

Election Day – Get Out and Vote

Americans are voting less and less. Voting is projected by some to be as low as 40% in this election. Most democracies in the world have a much high participation in the election process.

Please participate. Study the issues. Spend time in learning what the candidates stand for and what the ballot measures and various initiatives mean to your area. Our democracy depends on an educated populace voting for the best candidates for each position.

I would further advise you to pay less attention to the media campaigns and more attention to the actual written ballot measures and more attention to the actual candidates’ position on issues. Media hype and negative campaigning has too much effect on voting in America.

Most important of all. Get out and vote.
