COVID-19 Policy/Procedures Update
Please read our statement about Covid-19/Corona Virus below, or download it here.
As the number of cases in New Hampshire builds and particularly the number of cases in our region we have made the decision to reduce our services to urgent/emergent eye care only until April 5. We will evaluate again as that date approaches.
What this means:
We will be available for your needs. Though we will be rescheduling all non-urgent care we will have limited staff here during our usual business hours and one doctor reachable at all times. If you have eye concerns please call us, we will discuss symptoms you may have, make recommendations of what you may do on your own and initiate an in person or tele-medicine medical visit when appropriate. Harbor Eyecare handling any eye concern that may arise is far better for you the patient and the health care system at this time as urgent care centers and emergency rooms need to maintain their resources and availability for ill patients otherwise.
A red eye, sudden vision change, injury, or visual disturbance are examples of things we want to hear from you about and help answer during this time, those things should not wait.
As we stay available for those concerns, we will continue to process eye wear and contact lens orders. Glasses or contact lenses can be mailed to you and we can take new orders over the phone. If you have an eyewear need (example: a contact lens wearer may need new glasses as it has been recommended we reduce or stop wearing contacts as touching the eye/face increases possible contamination and glasses are a barrier for you to limit eye touching and exposure) we will schedule time for you in our optical to limit social contact. The same is true for in-person dispensing of glasses, we are happy to schedule private time in optical, mail them to you or do curbside pick-up.
Please do not hesitate to call us if you have questions or concerns, your eye health and visual needs are always our top priority.
