Schedule An Appointment

To Our Valued Patients,
We are pleased to report that we are back, although not completely back to the way things were before! The safety of our patients and staff is our top priority and we have made some changes to reflect this

These are some things that you may notice are different in our office
• In an effort to limit the number of people in the office we are operating on a reduce schedule. Because of this you may not be offered as many options for appointments as previously. Please understand that we are doing everything we can to accommodate everyone needing to be seen, but it simply isn’t possible to catch up quickly from being closed for 8 weeks.
• In an effort to control the flow and number of people in the office, our doors will remain locked. Please call us when you arrive. We will attempt to gather all information from you over the phone for the check in process and let you know when we are ready for you to enter the office.
• We will allow only one parent or guardian to enter the office with a minor child. All adults will be asked to come alone unless a companion is needed for health reasons.
• For those of you wishing to purchase new eyewear, we will not be permitting you to browse as before. One of our opticians will be happy to select the frames for you to try on……as many as it takes! All of the frames will be disinfected before returning to the display. If you wish to try the frames on without your mask, we will make accommodations for that to happen.
• If you need to have your glasses adjusted we are happy to do that for you. However, we ask that you call us when you arrive. We will let you know when an optician is available.
• We have removed most of our seating in the front office and have left only enough to allow for proper social distancing
• All magazines and publications have been removed from the waiting area
• The drinking fountain will no longer be available.
• All exam rooms and equipment are completely sanitized between patients
• All surfaces in the front office are sanitized hourly and you will notice that we have installed Plexiglas partitions on our front counter to protect you and our staff
• All patients will be required to wear a mask. In addition, our staff will be wearing masks when they are in direct contact with patients.
It is exciting to be back and we look forward to seeing you. However, if you or someone you have been in contact with have been diagnosed with or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you reschedule your appointment for at least 14 days.
Drs. Serino & Schefferly and the Premier Eyecare Team

Living an overall healthy life is good for your eyes. Healthy vision starts with healthy eating and exercise habits.

There's more to complete eye health than just carrots. Are you eating food that promotes the best vision possible? Learn what foods boost your eye well-being and help protect against diseases. Here are important nutrients to look for when selecting your foods.

  • Beta carotene or Vitamin A (helps the retina function smoothly): carrots and apricots
  • Vitamin C (reduce risk of macular degeneration and cataracts): citrus and blueberries
  • Vitamin E (hinders progression of cataracts and AMD): almonds and sunflower seeds
  • Riboflavin (helps your eyes adapt in changes in light): broccoli and bell peppers
  • Lutein (antioxidant to maintain health while aging): spinach and avacado
  • Zinc (transfers vitamin A to the retina for eye-protective melanin productions and helps with night vision): beans and soy beans
  • DHA (helps prevent Dry Eye): Fatty fish like salmon and tuna

Keep in mind, cooked food devalues the precious live enzymes, so some of these foods are best eaten raw.
