We are open!
Although we are open, our doors will remain locked to help us manage foot traffic through the main entryway. Call our office at 309-263-8611 to schedule:
- Routine, follow-up and emergency exams
- Glasses selection, adjustment and pick-up
- Contact lens pick-up
Once you arrive for an appointment, call us from our parking lot and we will ensure proper disinfection protocols have been completed before bringing you in. We have implemented strict screening and safety precautions in order to protect the health and safety of our patients, staff and community.
Per the CDC's recommendation, we ask that you wear a mask to your appointment. On entering the facilities, a member of our team will take your temperature and ask you a series of COVID-19 related questions. We ask that guests or family members stay in their vehicles to further our efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect our staff and patients.
During this crisis, please consider the CDC’s recommended precautions before, during and after your visit:
- Reschedule your appointment if you are sick or have been exposed to COVID-19.
- Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
- Avoid close contact, especially with people who are sick.
In addition to implementing safety measures for our patients, we will also be implementing screening protocols for our staff. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 crisis and are following the guidance and expertise of the Centers for Disease Control and Infection (CDC), the state and local public health officials, the Illinois Optometric Association (IOA) and the American Optometric Association (AOA).
If you would like to schedule an appointment, need to reschedule your appointment, or have further questions please contact us at 309-263-8611.
Thank you for your patience with us during this time,
Drs. Velting, Sommer, and the entire team at Vintage Optical
