Dear Friends,

We at Central Valley Eye hope you and your families are well. With COVID-19 infections continuing to rise, we are taking all necessary precautions to keep patients and staff healthy as we continue to provide the eye care that our community needs:
  • Whenever appropriate, we are rescheduling any patients with cough or cold symptoms
  • We have adjusted our schedule to decrease the number of patients in our waiting rooms. You can expect on average between zero and one patient to be in the waiting room at any given time.
  • We have increased our already strict sanitizing practices to extend into the waiting areas and halls.
  • Whenever appropriate, we are diverting visits to telemedicine (by cell phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop). Please contact us for further details at 209-952-3700.

    Additionally, some of our office locations may be closed on certain days. If you are unsure whether to come in for your visit, please call us.

    The doctors at Central Valley Eye will not be performing any non-urgent surgeries until further notice. Our surgery coordinators will be contacting patients to reschedule the surgeries that need to be postponed.
