“As we continue to navigate this unprecedented pandemic, we are monitoring the recommendations of public health and government agencies,” said CEO Reade Fahs. “Our priority has been, and continues to be, the safety of our associates, optometrists, patients and customers.

“During the temporary closure of our stores, we have heard from our customers and patients that they need the critical eye care services we offer. We have developed a phased approach to re-opening our stores to the public that we believe is not only safe and responsible, but also will allow us to continue serving those that need our eye care services the most during this time of lack of access.”

National Vision announced on March 18 that it would close all of its stores temporarily. The company has more than 1,100 retail locations in 44 states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

National Vision said it has developed and implemented policies and procedures to keep associates, optometrists, patients and customers safe. All policies and procedures align with recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Optometric Association as well as federal and state guidance on social distancing, cleaning procedures, use of personal protective equipment and other safety measures, according to the release.

Additionally, National Vision is implementing expanded health and safety training and procedures for all stores and optometrists practicing in its retail locations.

Throughout the phased reopening, retail locations that remain temporarily closed will continue to provide services as associates remain available by phone. The company’s e-commerce websites, including www.discountglasses.com and www.discountcontacts.com, continue to operate.
