COVID-19 Update

Heritage Eye Care has made the difficult decision to close our office for non-emergency care for two weeks, beginning March 23.  We feel it is our responsibility to put our patients’ health and well-being first.  We believe that we are doing what is necessary to keep the world healthy and slow the spread of the pandemic.  We encourage you to stay inside and keep your family safe.

The CDC and North Carolina Board of Optometry have recommended that all routine eye care be temporarily postponed in order to slow the transmission of COVID-19.

Our office hours will be limited to Monday – Thursday, from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm for emergency care only.

We will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves, but for now, we have made the decision to be available only for emergencies or urgent eye care issues that may arise.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, please contact our office immediately to be seen by one of our Doctors.

Ocular Emergencies:

–          Flashing lights in vision

–          New or increased floaters

–          Loss of vision

–          Eye pain

–          Sudden double vision

Routine Eye Health Exams: If you are scheduled for a routine eye examination appointment for the remainder of March, we will reschedule your appointment. As of March 23, 2020, we will be rescheduling appointments for April 6, 2020 and later.

Broken Glasses: Please contact us at (919) 453-1220. We are available by appointment.

Contact Lens Supply: Please contact our office at (919) 453-1220 to place your order.

Medication Refills: We are here for you! Please contact our office at (919) 453-1220. We are able to refill prescriptions and transmit them directly to your pharmacy so that you have the medication you need.

Picking Up Glasses or Contacts: We are available to dispense your glasses and contact lenses curbside by appointment. Please contact our office at (919) 453-1220 to reserve your appointment time. If you have a balance due on your order, we ask that you call to make payment before coming to the office. Once you get to the office, please call us and a member of our staff will bring the product to your car.

If you have an appointment scheduled with us this week, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate your understanding and trust in our decision. We wish everyone continued health, peace and strength during this challenging time. Please know we are anxiously awaiting the opportunity to serve you again soon.
