COVID-19 Update, updated 03/18/2020

To our patient family:

As of Tuesday evening, March 17, the CDC has recommended that all routine eye care be deferred until further notice, in order to slow the transmission of COVID-19 through our community.

We have made the decision to reduce our services to urgent/emergent eye care only until April 1st, at which time we will re-evaluate.

What does this mean?

Although the physical office will be closed, staff is available to answer questions, place contact lens orders, schedule urgent/emergent patients, etc, by phone from  10 am-4 pm M-F.

We are offering to extend contact lens prescriptions for up to 6 months for current patients. If you are in need of contacts, call the office at 785-266-5544 to discuss your situation or place an order. 

If you are running out of a medication, please contact us and we can transmit a refill electronically to your pharmacy. 

Dr. Durst is still available for urgent eye health problems and ocular emergencies. During the hours of 10 am - 4 pm please call the office at 785-266-5544. Outside those hours call and listen to the voicemail for instructions.

If you have glasses or contacts ordered or ready for pick up we will make arrangements for dispensing on an individual basis, including shipping those to you at no cost. Call the office with questions.

As always, we are here for you if you need us and if you have questions about your specific situation, feel free to call!

Thank you! Lora Durst, OD and staff
