Office Closure – Supporting COVID Public Safety

Office Closure – Supporting COVID Public Safety

Given the updated recommendations made by the CDC and leading medical authorities, we have decided to significantly decrease our schedule to do our part in limiting the spread of COVID-19. We will be in the office Wednesdays from 10am-2pm to handle any urgent glasses or contact lens orders, and Dr. Elson will be on-call for any urgent ocular/visual issues. Please call or text if you need us, and we will reach out as soon as possible.

If you experience a medical/vision emergency, or are unsure if your situation requires emergent care, please do not hesitate to contact us. Call, or text us at 714.838.9664, as we will be checking those messages regularly. For more urgent matters, please email Dr. Elson at or call the office to be redirected to his cell phone, and he will set up a time to discuss your issues or see you at the office if needed.

We will continue to closely monitor the situation and communicate with you regarding your visits with us. We appreciate your understanding as we try to navigate these difficult times and continue to provide you the absolute best care possible.


Stay Safe and Stay Well,
