Dear Patients,

Many of you have recently been told by our office that your elective cataract surgery has been temporarily cancelled. We have been advised by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and the Centers for Disease Control that we should stop all elective surgery immediately as a result of the Coronavirus epidemic. This recommendation includes cataract surgery and is in effect until further notice.

As surgeons we could never have imagined a situation in which we would not be allowed to offer a life changing procedure like cataract surgery. However, these are exceptional times. The recommendations to cease surgery are designed to protect the public health and to stop the spread of this disease.

As soon as we hear that this ban on elective surgery has been lifted, and that it is safe to offer surgery, our office will contact you to reschedule your procedure. Please do not call the office to ask for a reschedule date at this time as we do not know when we will be given the directive to restart surgery.

We appreciate your patience. Until then stay safe, and stay home.

Best regards,
Harry R. Pappas, M.D.
