We hope this letter finds you healthy, happy and prepared to ease back into your regular routines.
1) We are getting back to business as usual.
2) For now, every patient and guest in our office is still required to wear a mask or face-covering in physician offices per CDC guidelines as of May 17, 2021. The relaxation of masks in Virginia does not apply to physician offices such as ours. These coverings will be essential for anyone in our office. If you are working with our staff, they too will wear a mask.
3) Our forms and paper work are now online. Practically every form and signature required of you will be pushed to new online forms that will be completed before your arrival. Forms will be emailed to you ahead of time.
We look forward to getting back at providing you and your family a lifetime of exceptional eye care!
Thank you for your continued support, it is truly appreciated!
Drs. Robinson & Parker
Until further notice, all patients and staff will wear a face mask in the office per CDC recommendations.
We know this is annoying, but it is for the protection of both you the patient, our staff, and our community.

Also, our staff will maintain social distancing as often as physically possible depending on the procedure being performed.

Telemedicine is now an option for those ocular probelms that may not require an in-office visit.
If you feel you have an eye problemthat can be addressed over telemedicine, please request the appropriate appointment.
Any non-porous, shareable item in the office is sterilized using a UV-C chamber built by Dr. Parker. This will inactivate any single-stranded RNA virus (such as coronavirus) in only 12 seconds. We leave things in there longer though just to be sure. At 2 minutes, this chamber will even kill C-Diff.
We use this chamber to safely sanitize:
Ask if we can sanitize your phone while you wait!
If you have a true ocular emergency after hours please call 804-595-2020 and follow the prompts to contact a doctor. If the doctor cannot respond in a timely manner, please find the nearest emergency room.
