Coronavirus Update

Update: March 21, 2020

Dear Lenza Patients,

Lenza Eye Center is closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Our team is taking extra precautions to ensure the safety and well-being of our patients and employees. Lenza Eye Center will be temporarily closing our doors to the public and operating on an emergency-only basis.

We are evaluating the situation daily and will be re-opening as soon as the CDC changes their guidelines regarding non-urgent eye exams. Currently, we are not accepting any appointments and will be rescheduling any missed or cancelled appointments.

If you are in any need of emergency eye care, we recommend that you not go the emergency room as they are operating at full capacity due to COVID-19 and will not likely have the necessary equipment to correctly diagnose and treat your symptoms.

We are more than happy to accept emergency-only type appointments to address any concerns that you may potentially have. Please call us at (503) 833-2662 and you’ll be redirected to our on-call doctor to get you properly set up.

Examples of Emergency Eye Appointments:

  • Retinal detachment symptoms such as increased floaters, flashes of light, gradual loss of vision, veil/curtain obscuring vision.
  • Onset of double-vision over past several days.
  • Postoperative: Pain, significant decreased/change in vision, increased redness.
  • Monocular patient with any type of eye problem.
  • Acute onset of severe eye pain and/or light sensitivity
  • Ruptured globe.
  • Acute angle closure glaucoma.
  • Mechanical and chemical injuries to the eye.

Help Protect Yourself from COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Avoid large crowded areas.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
  • If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, please seek immediate care.
  • If sick, please stay at home.
  • Avoid any non-essential travel.

We appreciate your patience and your support during these challenging times.
