It looks like Summer is officially in full swing. We're lucky enough to have our schedule filled with teachers on vacation and kids out of school. We apologize if it takes a bit longer than usual to get in to see us over the next few months, but we're doing everything we can to add doctor days and squeeze people in whenever possible. Both Dr. Bittels will be out of the office the first week of July but we'll have a great fill in optometrist, Dr. Lenhardt, seeing patients for a few days next week (see schedule below). Otherwise, if you've got kids home from college or typically get your annual exam in before the end of Summer, you might want to schedule those appointments sooner rather than later because the end of July and August will really get crazy.
We've been holding off on the educational newsletters because we've been working on getting some new technology in the office that will revolutionize the way we make lenses for some of our patients. For those with high prescriptions and for those progressive wearers that still don't love their lenses, we are getting a state of the art tablet for our frame room that will allow us to take measurements and customize prescriptions like never before. This specific technology was just introduced in March 2013 so we will be one of the first few practices in Orange County with this instrument. We will do a full review of that technology once its up and running next month.
Until then, Happy Summer to all. Enjoy the extra family time, vacations, and beautiful weather. Thank you as always for keeping us busy and know that we are doing the best we can to accommodate Summer schedules.
