Our office is open for routine and medical eye care.

Please be advised of new protocols the office will have in place to protect our patients as well as our staff:

Call the office when you arrive for an appointment with the doctor or if you have an appointment to pick up eyewear, a tech will ask you a few questions before meeting you at the door.

*Patients will be required to wear a mask. A staff member will check your temperature upon entering.

*Only one parent will be allowed with a minor in the office. All other family members will need to wait in their vehicle.

Thank you in advance,

Bond Family Eye Care
