March 23, 2020
Due to the shelter-in-place order from Governor Whitmer today, Grand Ledge Optometry will be closed from March 23, 2020 until April 13, 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated as to our office hours. All routine examinations that were scheduled for this time period have been cancelled at this time. Staff will reschedule your appointment as soon as we are able to.
We are available for eye emergencies! Please call our office at 517-622-2020 and leave a voicemail, or contact us via email or text. Staff will monitor messages throughout the day and someone will contact you regarding your condition as soon as possible. Please avoid going to the emergency room or an urgent care center prior to contacting our office. Most eye emergencies can be treated in our office or managed by phone consultation.
For any contact lens patients that have less than a 3-month supply remaining, and are not having any problems, you may contact us to place an order. We will directly ship them to you free of any shipping charges. If your contact lens prescription is expired, we will extend your prescription on a case-by-case basis to allow you to continue with contact lens wear until we can see you. Please do not extend the wearing period of your contact lenses beyond the recommended replacement time. Proper hygiene when handling your contact lenses is still highly advised.
We apologize to those that have glasses or contacts on order that were sent to the office and are still waiting to pick them up. We ask that you try to manage with what you are currently wearing while the mandatory shelter-in-place is enforced. If there is an emergency regarding eyewear, please let us know and we will do our best to assist you. Thanks again for your patience and understanding!

To our Valued Patients:
Due to the national emergency pertaining to the COVID-19 virus and recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Grand Ledge Optometry has adjusted its normal business operations and hours. As of today, we have restricted appointments only to those requiring treatment of urgent conditions or emergency eye care. Our office will be closed Monday, March 23 until Monday, April 6. If there is a need for emergency consultation or care during our closing, we will be available by phone, email, or text to determine an appropriate course of action.
If you are currently scheduled for a routine appointment, staff will be contacting you shortly to reschedule your visit for a later date and time. We request that any existing orders for glasses or contact lenses be picked up after April 6. If your eyewear or contact lens order is urgent, please call our office for an appointment or other arrangements to dispense these items to you.
We remain committed to the health of our patients, staff, and our families during this difficult time. As this is a rapidly changing development, further updates will be included on our website, through email, text, and voicemail recording. If you should have any questions or concerns, please call our office at (517) 622-2020.
Thank you for your patience, understanding, and cooperation and stay safe!
