Mayor Adler enacted the Shelter in Place order for Austin, starting 11:59 PM 3/24/2020 until 04/13/2020.
Since our clinic is considered an Essential workplace, we will continue to see patients for emergency eye care services. Please call/text us at 512-222-5636 and we will triage your medical emergency appropriately. We will have tele-health capabilities and in office visits on a case to case basis.
Our SoLa office is open on Monday-Friday from 10-1 pm for all available urgent/medical eye care services and glasses/contact lens pick ups. We want to treat your cornea abrasion, for example, in our office instead of sending you to the emergency room. This will alleviate the influx of patients to the emergency room and urgent care centers.
Per CDC recommendation, effective 3/19/2020, our offices will suspend all routine eye care services until 04/20/2020.
We will be consolidating our office hours. Southpark Meadows office will be closed until further notice. We will be available for medical eye care services at our SoLa office location. Please call/text us at 512.222.5636 and we will triage you. We will do our best to take care your eye emergency cases before sending you to the emergency room.
We will have tele-health options available for all new and established patients. That means you could talk to our doctor and we could treat/prescribe out medications for you without seeing you in person.
We will have a "drop box" for pick up of glasses and contact lenses between 10-1 PM (Monday-Friday). Please contact us to schedule a time for you to pick up your items.
All contact lens orders will still be available for purchase. We will waive all Shipping/Handling charges at this time. Prescription extensions will be available on a case to case basis.
This is unprecedented times and we want to encourage all patients to take precautions and follow CDC/WHO protocols to flatten the curve.

To help protect the safety of all our patients and staff, we ask anyone that currently feels ill to please reschedule your appointment and to call your physician. This is especially true if you have a fever, cough, sneezing, or shortness of breath. The same thing applies if you have had any of these symptoms in the last 48 hours.
Please also reschedule your appointment if you have traveled outside the United States in the last two weeks to an area affected by the coronavirus disease. This includes China, Hong Kong, Iran, Italy, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, or Vietnam.
Our schedule and office hours will remain the same as usual. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office. The team at EyeRis Vision is here to answer any questions that may arise about your vision care.
