Hello FEC patient family!

Our clinics in Grand Island and St Paul have started the process of our "new normal".  We are open in both locations and our staff is ready to serve your needs.  We will continue to follow protocol and guidelines including social distancing and taking precautions to maintain safety for both our patients and staff.

Here is an overview of how we will be proceeding:

  • Our clinics will be gradually increasing our schedules over the next several weeks.
  • Telehealth is still being offered for any acute eye infections.  Please call our offices and our scheduling staff will coordinate a time for you to have a teleheath examination with one of our doctors.


Safety is a priority for our patients and staff:

  • Screenings will continue at our clinic entrance for both patients and staff.  This will consist of being asked a set of questions, along with the temperature, before entering the building.
  • All patients will be asked to wear a clean face mask or covering when inside the building.
  • We will continue adhering to our protocols of sanitizing our clinic and optical spaces.
  • At this time, only patients are allowed in the building for their appointments.  Family and friends will be asked to wait in their vehicle.  Exceptions will occur when a minor is involved or the patient needs a support person, which will be determined by our clinic.
  • We will still offer curbside pick-up of products.  Please call the office and we will bring your glasses, contacts, or products to you.

Thank you so much for your continued support and for working with us as we return to our "new normal".

Testimonials

Read what our patients are saying about Family Eyecare Center.

  • "Family Eye Care is an amazing place to go for eye care health! The staff is so kind and personable and the doctors very knowledgeable!"
  • "These people are amazing! We have had several issues with our insurance companies, hours of phone calls trying to clarify coverage for each family member and family eye care was extremely patient and understanding. I became an emotional wreck there in the office with the stress of it all and they were comforting. They helped us in a financial situation more than I could of asked for. I can't thank them enough for what they did for us. Super friendly and professional! Thank you so much everyone!!!"
  • "They were able to get me in last minute after calling around and trying to get into an eye doctor for several weeks. I was very impressed with how quick the whole appointment was and how professional and kind the staff were. They explained my insurance benefits and explained it a way I could understand. They also assisted me with making a good choice with glasses and contacts and helped me decide what would be the best decision. Will definitely be back! Well worth the drive from Hastings."
