COVID-19 UPDATES

Last updated 17:22 11 May 2020:

We are back open on Saturdays, in addition to our weekday availability for personal shopping appointments on a 30-minute schedule!

We do NOT have a doctor seeing patients on Saturdays yet. If you are interested in coming in to make an eyewear purchase, please call to set up your appointment time! We are allowing walk-ins only if the office is clear to respect public health order guidelines of social distancing and maximum number of persons in a space. *Please* be wearing a face covering of some kind in accordance with Larimer public health orders.

We are continuing to be strict with our cleaning and sanitizing protocols between people and greatly appreciate all of your understanding and cooperation through all of these times! Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Otherwise, rest assured, we are ready to serve you and this community. We greatly value our relationships with you. We are confident that we will get through this together and wish everyone the best during this difficult time.

*NEW* ALL visits are by strict appointment ONLY
Car deliveries are also by appointment ONLY

We are still open and seeing patients but are currently making several changes to ensure everyone is protected and safe. We will be adjusting appointment times to be on a strict 1 hour private examination plus shopping experience schedule. This ensures only one person (or family) is in the store at a time, and staff can take extreme COVID-19 measures and protocol seriously. We want the most minimal amount of people in the store possible. We will be sanitizing everything touched before and after appointments, including frames. No one else can walk in the locked doors without an appointment so there will be no risk of outside exposure or violation of 6 foot distancing rule. We will deliver glasses or contacts by mail or by drive-through pick-up by appointment.

Dr. Bryant and our Edge Optics opticians will be wearing protective gear when working with patients, even during frame selects. Please prepare any kids for this so that they are not alarmed. We want them to feel comfortable too. We have also eliminated all small toys from the kids area, and only kept large items that can be sanitized between families. All glasses, sunglasses, and contact lens items that were touched and tried on will be sanitized before they are put back and anyone else can come into contact with them. We will require you to sanitize your hands upon entry and as you are leaving the store and maintain suggested protocol if you are currently sick or in a high risk group.

We want you to know how seriously we are taking this pandemic.  We do not want to be responsible for any exposure, spread, or contamination. Dr. Bryant will also be available to existing patients for telemedicine (by appointment) for issues related to ocular infection, red eye, emergencies, or possible ocular symptoms of coronavirus, if you are concerned about leaving your house or entering the store. We will continue to put 100% effort into doing our very best and offering various methods for treatment and help. We know people NEED TO SEE and GET TREATED!! The hospitals are overrun. We are here for you. Our staff is thoroughly trained on this matter, and ready to serve the community. 

Thank you for continuing to come in during this time. To further help you we will also be offering: 

  • Discounted prices on eyeglasses 
  • Designated door-to-car delivery times to eliminate the need for you to find parking and come inside
  • Contact lens orders can be shipped directly to your home for free to prevent an extra trip – order here or call us 970-682-2627
  • IT’S HERE! ONLINE ORDERING! Click here for our online store
  • And a free small gift with every glasses purchase to thank you for your flexibility and understanding during this time!

We are sending positive thoughts and good vibes to you and yours. We have a great community. This too shall pass.

Warm regards, 

Dr. and Mrs. Bryant and Edge Optics Staff
