We are now offering Virtual Telehealth Exams
Taking care of our patients is our number one priority. We understand it can be difficult to know if an eye condition is urgent enough to be seen in-person during the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, we are now proud to offer Virtual Telehealth Services to our patients who have eye-related concerns. These can include, but are not limited to:
- Red eyes
- Swelling or bumps on eyelids
- Dry eyes
- Itchy eyes
- Light sensitivity
- Eye pain
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, please call our office at (650) 341-8080 or email us at [email protected] to schedule a virtual appointment with one of our doctors. Emergency symptoms such as sudden loss of vision, change in central or side vision, flashes or floaters, sudden onset of double vision, or vision-related headaches may require an in-person appointment. These symptoms often require additional testing for the appropriate diagnosis and treatment.
Please keep in mind there are limitations to what can be diagnosed online. If our doctors feel you need to be seen in person, they will let you know during the virtual exam.By offering this service, we hope to alleviate already-overwhelmed hospital urgent care or emergency rooms from eye-related issues which we can treat and manage, while reducing your risk of exposure to COVID-19.
