COVID-19 Update

Our office is open for emergencies and urgent eye problems.

We are taking every precaution to keep our patients and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you are having an acute eye problem, please consider scheduling a TeleHealth visit with your doctor.

You can arrange a TeleHealth visit with your doctor by calling us at (312) 475-1000. However, our office is experiencing an abundance of phone calls due to COVID-19. We encourage you to contact the office by a MyChart message (Northwestern Medicine's patient portal) or email us at These tend to be much faster than returning phone calls.

TeleHealth visits are billed to your insurance and most insurance companies are waiving the co-pay due to COVID-19.

If you require an in-office visit for an eye emergency, please limit visitors to only one person.

Thank you for your understanding during this ever-evolving situation.

I had a fear I was going to lose my eyesight…and to have a doctor who cares about you and who explains what's going to happen to you … that was awesome for me.” – Kathie
