Covid and Your Eye Care

scott van daalen UsALNdok2m4 unsplash (1)My name is Doctor Sharon Yamanaka. I am an optometrist here in Los Alamitos CA. I’ve been in private practice for the last 32 years. Twenty-eight has been here in Los Alamitos.

I would like to let you know our office is open to see patients on urgent or emergent care basis. We are also here to answer any questions or concerns you may have. If you would like to pick up your glasses, please contact our office and we will also be here to refill your contact lens prescription and eye supplements.

I want to let you know that we are taking immense measures to keep you and the community safe. We are sterilizing the office before and after each patient visit.

Furthermore, patients are asking if the coronavirus can affect their eyes. There is a small chance that it can affect your eyes with a condition called viral conjunctivitis or commonly known as pinkeye. However, as this virus is so new, we are constantly being updated with new results and recommendations.

If you have any symptoms such as red, watery, tearing eyes, please contact your local provider before seeking help an emergency room.

These are difficult times for everyone. Our hearts go out to those that have been affected by the coronavirus.

We thank health care providers, first responders and community members that are in the frontline of this pandemic.

I want to assure you that I'm here for you now and will be here for brighter days down the road. Thank you.
