NFE COVID-19 Response

We are now OPEN for all of your eye care needs by appointment only.

Telehealth will be used when possible.


We will be using our COVID-19 protocols, please click here to view an outline of what to expect during your scheduled visit.

  • Per CDC guidelines, all appointments for routine eye care examinations are being scheduled but will be limited during the COVID-19 crisis.
  • Ocular emergencies, medical prescription renewal requests:  NFE doctors are available for ocular emergencies and essential eye care.   Due to overwhelming phone calls and limited staff in our call center, we ask for patience during this time.
  • Glasses, and optical services: 

We still offer a couple of options for picking up your glasses:

  1. Mail the glasses to you at no charge. Fitting of the glasses can be made by scheduling an appointment during business hours.
  2. Pick them up.  Please make an appointment by calling our office before coming to the office.
  • To order or reorder glasses, please call the office and schedule an appointment.
  • Contact lenses:  Please call the office and the contact lenses will be shipped directly to you.
    • For expiring contact lens prescriptions: we are extending all contact lens prescriptions per our doctor’s discretion.
  • Expiring vision insurance benefits:  If your vision benefits are expiring soon, please contact your vision insurance company to determine if you can get an extension. Insurance companies are working on COVID-19 contingency plans and will make determinations on a case by case basis at this time.

Your health and well-being are of the utmost importance to us.
