WINTER WEATHER POLICY

In the event of winter weather, we do not expect patients to risk life or limb to get to their eye exam. Below are details of our Winter Weather Policy.

  • If all 3 surrounding public schools are closed and we have had severe winter weather (greater than 3 inches of snow or solid icy roads), we will be closed. This includes Jenks, Sapulpa, and Glenpool.
  • We will be assumed open during most mild winter weather. This includes 3 inches or less of snow. If an exception to this rule occurs, every patient will be contacted and directed otherwise.
  • Cancellation fees will be waived for all appointments missed for severe weather. For mild winter weather we do ask that you call our main number if you wish to cancel. 918-296-3937
  • If we are closed and you have an ocular emergency, we have 24 hour care for our patients by calling 918- 298-4787. This does not apply for broken/lost glasses or contacts.
  • If you are currently being followed for a serious eye problem, it may be at the doctor’s discretion if you need to be seen on a winter weather day.

Remember when playing out in the snow, if the sun is out then UV light is very strong and can damage the eyes. Wear Sunglasses when out in the snow!! Especially children!!!!!!! Their eyes absorb more UV than adult eyes.
