Acuity Eye Group understands that the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 have caused people to delay preventative care this year. However, there is a time when routine care becomes urgent care. If left untreated, eye conditions can worsen and put people’s vision health at risk. In fact, nearly 90% of vision impairment is preventable if caught early enough.

Acuity Eye Group understands that the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 have caused people to delay preventative care this year. However, there is a time when routine care becomes urgent care. If left untreated, eye conditions can worsen and put people’s vision health at risk. In fact, nearly 90% of vision impairment is preventable if caught early enough.

Additionally, as the end of the year approaches, it’s important for people to review their Vision and Medical benefits to ensure they’re taking advantage of them. For example, with a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), money from each paycheck is automatically deposited into an account that people can use for health expenses not covered by insurance. However, remaining dollars in an FSA may not all roll-over into 2021. Also, with most medical plans, once people have met their annual deductible, they’ll pay significantly less out of pocket for any healthcare expenses they have. So, if someone has already met their deductible for 2020, now is a good time to schedule a medical eye exam, cataract consultation, or any other services they may need or be considering.

Acuity Eye Group has locations open in the Central Valley, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Coachella Valley, Inland Empire and Imperial Valley. Recognized for having Top Doctors in every market served, their talented team of ophthalmologists, retina doctors, and optometrists are always accepting new patients. They have taken additional measures to ensure all patients and team members are protected while in clinic, such as masking everyone that is in the clinic (doctor, staff, and patient), conducting temperature checks, and providing hand sanitizer.

The health and well-being of their patients remains their #1 priority and will continue to guide every decision they make. "With the additional measures in place, we are confident in our ability to ensure an environment where our patients can be cared for safely, and staff, patients, and doctors are protected," said Dr. Tom S. Chang
