Coronavirus (COVID-19) Alert

In response to the threat posed by the C-virus pandemic throughout the world, the VMR Institute for Vitreous Macula Retina has instituted protective measures that are in compliance with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the California Medical Association (CMA). These specifically include telephone screening for recent travel and relevant symptoms, measuring patient temperature upon presentation to the office, decreasing patient visit volumes by only caring for urgent or emergent cases, and spreading out appointments to implement ‘social distancing’. All staff are equipped with PPE and all equipment and patient contact areas are cleaned between patients.

Thank you for your patience and forbearance during these trying times. Together, we shall prevail.
