The well-being and safety of our patients are and always have been our highest priority.

Governor Abbott’s executive order is ending the statewide COVID restrictions and mask mandates, but Vision Centers of Houston will continue to require face masks and practice social distancing while in our clinic. As a healthcare entity, we must follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC.

We are asking you to continue masking. We know that it works. It protects our doctor, staff, and YOU. There are infectious variants are circulating in Texas, and many more people wait to be vaccinated.

Let’s do everything we can to protect each other.

We truly appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding in our desire to protect our at-risk patient population.

We will look to the CDC and their recommendations as we move forward.
