Exciting News!! We are now open!!

Dolman Eyecare is now open! But we need your help.

Your health and eye care is our priority. Our clinic is taking all of the mandated precautions and more, to minimize the risks to your health; but we need your help! We have special early morning hours for our ‘at risk’ patients. In addition to a health questionnaire, a mask, and hand sanitizing / washing is required for all patients, staff and doctors. We will continue to practice physical distancing and have acrylic counter barriers when distancing isn’t possible. There will be disinfection of all instruments, counters, door knobs, bathrooms, and any other touchable surface after each patient visit. We want you to feel safe in our office space. Don’t let issues with your eyes and vision become bigger problems. Call our office today for an appointment (519-662-3340). Take care!
