Based on recent guidelines from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and the AOA (American Optometric Association) and the North Carolina Board of Optometry, Triangle Family Eye Care will close starting Monday, March 30th.

We will be open for glasses and contact lens pick up only the week of March 22nd. Doctor Prajapati will not be seeing any patients unless it’s an ocular emergency.

Ocular emergencies may be any of the following symptoms: redness/eye pain, sudden loss of vision (central or peripheral), trauma to the eye, contact lens-related eye pain.

We will keep you posted as to when our office will reopen as this is a fluid situation.

Thank you, Dr. Prajapati and staff at TFEC
