Covid-19 Update - May 19, 2020

As per direction by the Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health, our office continues to be available for urgent care only, and is temporarily closed to routine in person appointments.  

We now have staff back in the office preparing to reopen. We continue to postpone scheduled appointments on a week by week basis, until we have an open date. We will post updates on office changes to expect prior to opening.

Staff can be reached by phone Monday to Friday 9 to 4 for the following:

  • if you are experiencing a vision problem, arrangements can be made for phone, telemedicine or in person assessment as urgency requires.
  • if you need to order contact lenses, please complete our website order form and include your phone number. Lenses will be shipped directly to you after contacting you by phone.
  • if you have broken glasses, please contact staff to determine what needs to be done.
  • if you need artificial tears or lid care products, please contact staff to make arrangements. 

On weekends, phone and email are monitored for emergencies.

If you are a contact lens wearer and you are experiencing any symptoms of any illness, COVID or otherwise, contact lens use should be discontinued until you are well.
For everyone, proper and frequent hand washing is essential. Contact lens wearers should make sure this occurs before every insertion and removal.

Once an open date is announced, we will be contacting all patients who have had an appointment postponed to reschedule on a priority basis. Unless you are experiencing an urgent situation, please wait for us to contact you to reschedule. 

You can reach us at 705-741-2016 or reception@cawkerandshields.com.
We will keep our phone message updated as circumstances change.

Please stay safe.
