COVID-19 Coronavirus Update for our Valued Patients

The COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic has caused our practice to adapt to allow us to still provide the necessary services to help maintain and prevent vision loss while at the same time providing for the safety and health of our patients and staff. Due to the global spread of COVID-19, we are taking all necessary precautions and following all recommendations and guidelines in compliance with the State of Michigan, the CDC, the Amercian Academy of Ophthalmology, and the American Glaucoma Society to minimize the risk of exposure and infection.  Our goal is to continue to provide the highest level of care in the safest way possible to patients most in need. 

We will continue to provide vision-saving treatment for our patients.  However, we will need to modify how patients move through our offices and change our schedule to minimize the risk of infection for our patients and staff.  At this time our staff can still be reached during normal business hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday - Friday.  These hours and schedules are subject to change as this is a fluid situation.

The Glaucoma Center of Michigan

Dilating your pupils with eye drops does cause temporary blurring of vision and increased light sensitivity.  You may be more comfortable having someone accompany you to the office so that he or she can drive you home.  The major effect of the eye drops generally wears off after 3 to 4 hours in most people.  We suggest you bring sunglasses.
