Coronavirus Update

Dear Derby City Eye Care Family,

In light of Governor Beshear’s recent announcement that optometry offices can resume providing care to their patients, we are pleased to announce that we will be reopening on Monday, May 4.

Please understand, though, this will not be “business as usual.”  Under normal circumstances, we enjoy taking time to get to know you, your eye health history, and all your vision needs.  But the current situation with the coronavirus requires that we shorten conversations and limit interactions to just the essentials.

The Governor’s latest guidelines also recommend implementing several new measures to protect the health of our staff and patients during this unprecedented time.  To meet these standards, we have established new policies and procedures that you can read about here, and will see the next time you come to our office.

If you would like to schedule a telehealth or in-person appointment with us, or if you have questions regarding your eye care or health, please visit our website,, and fill out the appointment request form.  Since we are working with reduced staff and hours at this time, we may be unable to answer your calls as promptly as usual, but we will respond as soon as possible.

We are happy to be caring for our patients again soon, and genuinely appreciate all your patience and support during this challenging time.  We will get through this together!


Dr. Fowler
