COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update and closure

Newark Family Eye Care realizes that COVID-19 is impacting all of our lives.  Please know that we stand with you, your families and our entire community during this difficult time.

Safety is our primary concern. To ensure the highest level of safety we are following a directive by the CDC and American Optometric Association to postpone all non-essential vision care. This means all routine eye examinations will be postponed until after the virus has been contained. We will be available to see anyone that has an eye emergency by appointment only during our abbreviated hours below. In addition, we will be available for dispensing of existing glasses orders and ordering contact lenses during these hours. Please understand that glasses orders may take longer due to the pandemic we are facing.

Our abbreviated hours going forward will be as follows:

Monday: 11am-1pm

Wednesday: 11am-1pm

Friday: 11am-1pm

We will keep you informed as changes occur or as we have news to share. Please feel free to contact us via email at NewarkFamilyEyeCare@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.
