Visiting Your Optometrist During COVID-19

Is your eye doctor's appointment coming up? Are you worried about going to the eye clinic during the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic? Rest assured, keeping our patients and staff are safe is our top priority. 

As of 3/17/20,  Bowers Optometry will be closed for two weeks, except for emergencies. During that time, a staff member will be in the office to triage urgencies and emergencies. We will re-evaluate on 3/31/20 and proceed as directed by the CDC. 

If you need to pick up glasses or contact lenses, call our office and a staff member will meet you at the door. Due to the highly contagious nature of this virus, we ask that you return when we reopen for any glasses adjustments. We thank you, in advance, for your patience.

When we reopen, additional hours will be added to our schedule to accommodate those patients who have been rescheduled. This is a difficult time for all of us but our community is strong.  We will get through this and we look forward to serving you when this crisis is over.

That said, guidelines for slowing the spread of this epidemic are rapidly changing. Please pay close to attention to local regulatory changes to get the most up-to-date information on whether practices can still remain open/ accept non-emergency cases. 



Please call our office at 919-661-2957 with any questions or concerns you may have.

  • Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) at
  • World Health Organization (WHO) at 

Thank you and stay safe!
