Available to patients through in-office and telehealth visits
Whether you are in need of routine eye care, glasses, contact lenses, school vision exams or specialized treatment for complicated eye diseases or conditions, the only ophthalmology practice in Louisville you need is UofL Physicians – Eye Specialists.
Our eye care specialists, including ophthalmologists, optometrists and opticians, are nationally renowned experts in their fields. To help maintain social distancing during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, UofL Physicians – Eye Specialists offer telehealth appointments in addition to traditional in-clinic appointments.
Telehealth appointments allow patients to see providers over a phone, tablet or computer using a HIPAA-secure application that is similar in use to Skype, Facetime or Facebook Messaging. The application is free and can be easily downloaded.
To schedule a visit — either in-person or by telehealth – call our Hotline at 502-588-4343. One of our access coordinators will be happy to schedule your appointment, and walk you through the easy steps to prepare for your telehealth visit if that is your choice.
