On February 16th, 2022 the California Department of Public Health removed the universal indoor mask requirements for fully vaccinated individuals in most settings.
However, the California Department of Public Health and California Optometric Association have affirmed that Optometry offices are classified as Healthcare Facilities under the updated guidelines and as a result MASKS ARE STILL REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES WHILE IN OUR OFFICE. Thank you for helping us to keep our business compliant with these regulations so we can stay open and continue serving our community through these trying times.
With your safety and the safety of our staff and families in mind, we continue to maintain an array of precautions based on the CDC’s guidance related to COVID-19 management. Most importantly, for the foreseeable future we will only be allowing patients with pre-scheduled appointments to enter the office, this includes the picking up of previously ordered glasses and contact lenses, as well as all glasses adjustments, repairs and sales. If you have a current contact lens prescription and would like to have lenses shipped to your home, please feel free to call our office or visit our online contact lens shop. To schedule an appointment please call 831-250-6999. Dr. Barseghian and Dr. Fogg are also providing 24/7 care via telemedicine for all emergent needs.

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call 1-800-985-3059.
