Eclipse sends eye doctors into overdrive

The AP reports “With the total solar eclipse right around the cosmic corner, eye doctors are going into nagging overdrive,” warning people of eye damage from “staring at the sun, even the slimmest sliver of it.” American Optometric Association President Christopher Quinn, OD, explained, “It’s really important to resist the urge to look even momentarily, directly in the sun because you have no real sense of time.” Dr. Quinn added, “What you think may be a glancing look could be a more substantial amount of time, and that can result in permanent damage.” Read more here.

Dear Patients and Community

Due to COVID-19 and local and health recommendations, we have made the difficult decision to limit the eye care services we can currently provide.

As of today, TSO Allen will be open for urgent eye care and emergencies only. We plan to resume routine eye examinations on Monday, April 13th.

Orders can be picked up curbside. Customers can also still order contact lenses, glasses, sunglasses, and eye care products for curbside pickup.

We thank you for your understanding and loyalty during this difficult time. Please call us with any questions or emergencies.
