Dear Patients,

Family Vision Solutions and Specialty Contact Lens Center is adapting to the rapid changes surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Effective tomorrow, 03/25/2020, Dr. Kelsea Skidmore will be available for urgent eye care, by appointment only. No routine eye care will be addressed at this time. If you are in need, contact the office at 713-349-0224 and Your continued patience is appreciated as we are not yet back to our normal operations.

Balancing state, federal, and health expert guidelines may become increasingly difficult as this pandemic continues. We will continue to monitor the situation and send updates as they arise. As we make decisions, the health and safety of patients and staff will be our top priority.

UPDATE: For those who are also cared for by the surgeons at Houston Eye Associates, I have recently learned that they will have doctors available for emergency care as well, should you need them.

Health and Peace, Doctors and Staff
