Dr. Martin and his staff are providing essential services for those who have eyecare needs/ vision issues during this COVID-19 restricted time. We understand that, while things like regular checkups may not be urgent, vision issues or immediate problems are not to be put off and can require an appointment.
We want you to know that we are cleaning the office and adhering to healthcare recommendations in order to keep you and your family safe while you visit our office. Our appointment times are changing often so please call us directly if you have a concern or question. We can then check for opening on our revised calendar so we can schedule you a visit during our open hours.
URGENT VISION ISSUES
If you are experiencing vision issues such a double-vision, “floaters,” blurry vision, or new headaches, these are issues that should not be put off to a later date. Please call us and we can advise you if you need to be seen by one of our doctors. Oftentimes, the sooner a condition is treated, the better results the patient will see.
CHILDREN’S VISION ISSUES
Also, for those of you that have children at home, now that you are watching them go thru their daily school work, you may notice some habits which could indicate they are having vision issues. If you see any of the following, please let us know:
- Leaning in very close to a paper they are reading
- Complaints of headaches towards the end of the day
- Excessive blinking while they are reading
- They are covering one eye while reading
- They focus for only a very short time and then walk away or stop reading often
These could all indicate vision issues. Please contact our office to let us know what signs they are exhibiting so we can further advise you as to the what the problem may be.
Everyone here at Family Vision Development Center hopes that you take the time to enjoy this extra time with family, take the time to slow down a bit, and that you stay healthy & safe! Please contact us at 630-862-2020 to ask any questions you may have or to schedule an urgent appointment.
