Greetings Patients of Lifetime Eyecare!

We are pleased to announce a phased reopening of our office. We are starting slow to ensure the safety of our staff and our community as we navigate and adjust to the continually changing COVID-19 situation, so please bear with us. Appointment priority is being given to those whose appointments were cancelled from the recent closure. At this time we are unable to accommodate new patients.

Calls are being returned in the order they are received and all efforts are being made to return them within 24 hours. Messages are being routinely checked throughout the day. The fastest way to reach us is by text message at 907-789-3175 or email at For needs related to glasses (ordering, adjustments, repairs) please send an email to and she will schedule a time to meet with you. Please limit calls and messages to one per patient request/concern to
avoid congestion of the phone lines and time spent sifting through redundant communications.

We are not open for walk-ins and all entries will be by appointment only. All patients must arrive to their appointment wearing a secure mask and we will perform non-contact temperature screening upon entry. Because we are tightly controlling our office flow and need extra time for cleaning between patients, anyone arriving 10 or more minutes tardy will be rescheduled. Please do not bring anyone else to your appointment. Two exceptions will be made: one adult can accompany a minor child and one caregiver for someone needing physical or cognitive assistance. We are eager to ease into our new normal, and begin addressing your needs!

All the best,
Doctors and Staff at Lifetime Eyecare
