McCormick & Bouchard Eye Care LLC

Here at McCormick & Bouchard Eye Care, we have unfortunately had to temporarily close our office due to the virus outbreak and are following the recommendations from our governing body to postpone routine vision care to help with social distancing.
Having to close our business has definitely been a blow and we are aware that many Lincoln County residents are struggling alongside us with work layoffs and uncertain futures. We want to reassure everyone that we are here to support the community during this difficult time and are still available to provide urgent/emergent eye care in our clinic. We are also available to answer any questions you might have regarding your eye health or vision. The office will be minimally staffed weekdays 9-12 but you can reach the doctors by calling 563-3049 and listening to the message. 
Here are some recommendations we would like to pass along while we work through this:

Urgent/Emergency Eye Care
--Avoid urgent care and the hospitals for eye problems to keep the hospitals more available for COVID-19 care.

Vision Strain Awareness

--Kids and adults alike are about to spend even more time than usual on their tablets, phones and computers and the risk of eye strain will consequently be much higher. To reduce the risk of eye strain, try to follow the “Rule of Twenty”; when performing prolonged near activities, do the following:

--maintain a working distance of at least 20 inches 
(the further you hold things from your face the less focusing effort is required)
--take a vision break every 20 minutes to look far away (at least20 feet) for at least 20 seconds
--For kids, the break should be longer.

Social Distancing
--Help everyone stay safe by social distancing and eliminating unnecessary social interactions. This will make a huge difference in delaying the load on our hospital system so everyone has the best chance of surviving if they become infected with COVID-19

Contact Lens Care
--Remove your contact lenses nightly. Even if you've been told they are safe to sleep in and you've been doing it with no problems, this is not the time to get an eye infection. 
--When you remove your lenses be sure to clean them with designated contact lens cleaning solution, using fresh solution nightly. DO NOT USE WATER!
--Keep your contact lens case clean! If you are having trouble finding cases to purchase we have some available at no charge. 
--Throw away your lenses on time. Acuvue Oasys lenses are designed to be thrown away every 2 weeks, while other brands such as Air Optix, Biofinity and Pure Vision are monthly disposable lenses. Daily disposable lenses are single use lenses and should be thrown away after every use. If you aren’t sure what your disposal schedule is supposed to be then contact us via email and we will be happy to help you.
--If you are at risk of running out of contact lenses our clinic can order you more and have them shipped directly to your home.

Emergency Glasses
--If you have the misfortune of breaking your glasses we have our own edging lab with inexpensive single vision lenses in stock to cover most prescriptions and we can make your new glasses while you wait in your car. Progressive lenses are usually done within a week. We have strict policies in place to maintain a clean and safe environment should anyone need a pair of glasses, but at this time this service is being done on an emergency basis only.

Our office number is (207) 563-3049. Listen to the message on how to reach the doctors if you are having an emergency.
Our direct email address is mbeyedrs@midcoast.com. We check it regularly and will respond as soon as possible.

Wishing the best for you and your families and looking forward to working together during this crisis and into the future!
