From Dr. Joseph DeLuca

Corona Virus (COVID-19) has affected all our lives and things are rapidly changing.  We wanted to make you aware of some of the changes at DeLuca Vision Consultants during this time. DeLuca Vision Consultants will remain open. However, we are seeing patients on a very limited schedule. As per the CDC and the American Academy of Ophthalmology guidelines, we are seeing patients who need URGENT or EMERGENT CARE. Routine eye exams and elective non-urgent surgeries will be rescheduled, at the earliest, to the middle of April.

The staff will continue to answer your phone calls, make future appointments, cancel or reschedule them, and help you with your urgent visits. We can assure you that we are doing everything possible to create a clean, safe environment.

Patients are asked to call the front desk when they arrive and wait in their car until one of the staff members screen you for entrance. Once there, you will find that all staff members are wearing masks and gloves, and maintaining a safe distance to protect themselves and you.

All rooms have been and will continue to be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. We assure you that DeLuca Vision Consultants will be up and running at full steam to take care of all your eye care needs as soon as circumstances allow.

Our very best to you and your family. Stay safe.
