The Crookston Eye Clinic will remain open but in accordance with recommendations by both the American and Minnesota Optometric Associations, they have reduced their scope of care to urgent and emergency eye care.
The Crookston Eye Clinic doctors and staff offer full-scope primary eye care and are committed to serving the region during the COVID-19 pandemic by being more available to deal with any eye-related concerns to help reduce visits to urgent care or the emergency department.
Anyone experiencing any changes in vision, flashes or floater symptoms, infections, injuries, or any other eye or vision-related concerns should call us to determine whether we can address the issue over the phone, via telehealth, or with an office visit. The patient’s health status will be screened following CDC screening guidelines.
During this time the Crookston Eye Clinic will also continue to dispense glasses and contacts. Both can be delivered curbside or mailed if desired. They are refraining from adjusting frames or fitting new frames at this time due to the proximity involved is well within the six-foot distancing recommendations.
The doctors at the Crookston Eye Clinic are in daily communication with their state association and will update the community if/when any new recommended changes in practice occur. Anyone with any questions or concerns should call 218-281-2020.
