The NOA supports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Guidelines issued on March 17, 2020 to postpone routine eye visits.  

Highlighting that this is a rapidly changing situation, the CDC released an updated recommendation on March 17 that ALL routine dental and eye care appointments are postponed.

The NOA strongly recommends Optometry practices in Nevada voluntary suspend non-essential, non-urgent/non-emergent Optometric care. As primary eye care physicians, the NOA Board encourages our members to maintain some levels of availability for our patients and to the general public.
