Myopia, or near-sightedness, is a growing concern for parents as kiddos are becoming more and more near-sighted.
While genetics are partially to blame, much of the near-sighted shift in our population is from environmental changes. We are doing more near-tasks in our day, with computers, cell phones, & online learning. Increased myopia is associated with increased risk of ocular conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, and retinal detachments.
We are excited to offer myopia management programs that can slow or halt your child’s near-sightedness progression. Please call office or schedule online to see if your child would be a good candidate for these options, and help set your kid up for success in their future!
Reno Family Eye Care
Hello, Northern Nevada! We’ve missed you.
We are excited to open our doors again for our patients eye care needs, including routine eye exams. Please call us at 775-787-9137 to schedule.
As we move forward, for the safety of our patients and staff, we have made several changes to our policies and procedures.
We ask that any patient with a fever or symptoms of flu or upper respiratory disease to please reschedule their appointment, and are asking all patients to arrive wearing a face mask that covers their mouth and nose. Every person entering the office will have a wellness questionnaire and have their temperature taken with a forehead infrared thermometer.
We are limiting the number of patients we see in a day to reduce cross-traffic and crowding.
We ask that any patient coming in to the office do so alone, without spouses, children or siblings. If the patient is a minor or needs a caregiver, we ask that they come with only one parent or caretaker. We are asking our patients who are minors age 2 and up to wear a mask. We are not allowing food or drinks in the office at this time.
If you have glasses or contacts to pick up, or your glasses need an adjustment, please call our office at 775-787-9137 when you arrive and we will be happy to deliver your items to your car.
Thank you, and we look forward to your continued support as a small, locally owned business.
