Our boutique practice is committed to the well-being of our community and values safety as the #1 priority.  We realize many of our patients have been waiting for months for their office visit or their eyelid surgery.  However, given the recent situation with Covid-19, and the below update from the American Academy of Ophthalmology, of which Dr. Iyengar is a member, we are scheduling and rescheduling appointments after April 2020 for your safety and well-being.
Thank you to our San Diego Emergency Room Physicians and local Eye Surgeons who trusted us with their own eyelids and are now keeping our community safe and healthy.
We thank you for your understanding, apologize for any inconvenience, and appreciate your support of our practice.
