COVID-19 Update

Dear Friends of Hellerstein & Brenner Vision Center PC,

We are very saddened and concerned by the COVID-19 pandemic and have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our office. On Tuesday March 18, 2020, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the COA (Colorado Optometric Association) recommended suspending routine vision/eye care. We are following this recommendation to insure the safety for our patients and staff.

We have closed beginning Friday March 20, 2020 and hope to re-open the beginning of May 2020. We will be monitoring the recommendations of the CDC and AOA.  We will remain open for eye related emergencies as well as post-op appointments.

Please see below for specific eye-related emergency procedures, contact lens questions, optical questions, and vision therapy questions.

Continue to check our website as well as our social media links for updates. We will also be monitoring our phones and emails between the hours of 10:00AM and 2:00PM. Please allow 24-48 hours for us to return your calls and emails.

The doctors and staff of Hellerstein & Brenner Vision Center PC are appreciative of your trust and continued support. We wish you and your families good health and we will see you soon!

As an important reminder from the AOA (American Optometric Association):

“The research literature is clear. To prevent contact lens infections of all kinds: bacterial, viral, and fungal, contact lens wearers must:

  1. Wash hands thoroughly, at least 20 seconds, with soap and water, and dry hands completely.
  2. Use daily disposable contact lenses if possible.
  3. If solutions are required, use them appropriately. Specifically, do not top-up or re-use solutions.
  4. Replace cases monthly or more frequently. Rinse, wipe, and air dry contact lens cases every day.
  5. Do no wear contact lenses when you are ill.”

OPTICAL DEPARTMENT (GLASSES)

Optical will be operating on a reduced schedule by appointment only for you to pick up glasses.

This coming week optical hours will be Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10am to 2pm. Please call (303) 850-9499 and leave a message so we can call you back to schedule your pick up time.

If you would like for us to mail your glasses to you (at an additional charge of $10.00), please call (303) 850-9499 or email main@hbvision.net so that we can make arrangements.  


VISION THERAPY / TRAINING & VISUAL REHABILITATION

However, we are still committed to your/your child’s care and would like you/them to continue their vision activities and exercises as we have discussed at your last visit.

Could Visual Problems be contributing to your child’s problems with reading or learning?

Does your child struggle with reading? Does he/she do well at first and then begin to make “careless”/confusing errors? Is memory/comprehension of what he/she has read difficult? Does he/she experience recurrent problems with fatigue, headaches, or blurred vision while studying? Does he/she just not seem to work up to potential? Does he/she have poor handwriting skills or seem clumsy or uncoordinated?

Vision Therapy and Occupational Therapy

We place great value in offering both vision therapy and occupational therapy evaluation and programs for those requiring help with visual and motor skills.

Don’t hesitate to contact us

We will gladly respond to your questions via email or phone. Please consider us as a source of both help and education.
