We hope this message finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the course of this year, and all of us are looking forward to resuming normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
We have had to make changes to the structure of our schedule and work environment to this end, including:
- Limiting occupancy inside the office to 20% capacity
- Eliminating Waiting Room - due to our limited space and capacity, we can no longer have patients wait inside the office. Because of this, we recommend coming to your appointment right on time - not early.
- Masks required at all times (and are available upon request)
- No food or drink is allowed in the office
- Appointments are to be attended alone unless supervision is required, such as in the case of a minor. FaceTime / Video Chats are welcome!
During this time, it is imperative that you stay at home and reschedule your appointment if you are experiencing any symptoms including a fever over 100.4 degrees, cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat, severe fatigue OR if you or a family member have had contact with another person with confirmed COVID-19 within the past 14 days.
WHAT TO EXPECT FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT
- Upon arrival, you will be asked to sanitize your hands and fill out a health screening questionnaire.
- PPE has been provided to all staff members including masks and sneeze guards where possible.
- You will be directed to a seat or asked to wait at the front of the office for the doctor.
- Each patient in the office will be attended to by a staff member: doctor, optician, technician or front desk specialist.
Thank you for your understanding during this time. Please e-mail or call the office if you have any questions.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

What Our Patients Say
Dr. O. Vanessa Avery is the best optometrist I've ever worked with. The prescription she set me up with changed my visual life and she also helped my eye health. Apparently having an almost invisible eyelash tucked into your eyelid for days at a time is not good for your eye. She fished it out and got me eye drops to soothe my scratched lens as it healed.
OK now let's talk about frames. I have the most gorgeous, comfortable frames for my regular glasses and my prescription sunglasses. I get so many compliments on them, which is very important to me. The optician spent as long as I needed helping me find glasses that fit my giant head and make me feel good. This place has trunk shows regularly where you can comb through tons of designer selections assisted by the designer rep. BTW frame designer reps know their s*%t and can fit you in killer frames that fit like a dream. And they are particular about the fit and won't try to sell you something uncomfortable or doesn't work on you.
Eye Carumba is my jam and I've recommended several coworkers to start getting their eyes checked here. I have an appointment next week and I'm looking forward to it.
