Notice of temporary closure for COVID-19

Closed sign - but please call for urgent care

On the recommendation of the College of Optometry, we have decided to close our offices until March 29th to help limit the spread of the coronavirus. We feel it’s important to heed the government’s call for social distancing at this critical time.

Open only for urgent care

Updated March 20th: Both our Almonte and Gloucester offices will be closed except for urgent care as per the recommendations from the Ministry of Health. Appointments for routine care are cancelled but we are available for urgent cases.

If patients need to order contact lenses, this can be done through our website or by sending an email or leaving a message. Once contact lenses arrive, an appointment will be arranged for the patient to pick up.

Glasses can be picked up as well by arranging an appointment.

In all cases, we ask that you come to the clinic only if you are symptom-free and not in quarantine for another reason.

Almonte patients can leave a message at 613-256-0770 or by email at almonte@ottawafamilyeyecare.com.

Gloucester patients can call 613-745-5588 or email gloucester@ottawafamilyeyecare.com.

We thank you for your understanding and patience at this challenging time. Stay well.
