Frequently asked questions


Are your stores opened or closed?

  • All stores are open! We are re-opening our retail locations to the public with enhanced safety protocols and a focus on meeting the eye health needs of patients and customers.

What are you doing to help prevent exposure to COVID-19?

  • The safety of our associates, optometrists, customers and patients is a priority. As we re-open our stores to the public, we are implementing enhanced health and safety policies and procedures that align with recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as federal, state and local government guidance on social distancing, cleaning procedures, use of personal protective equipment and other safety measures. We have also implemented expanded health and safety training and procedures for all stores and optometrists practicing in our retail locations.

Do I need an appointment to visit the store?

  • An appointment is strongly encouraged, and we are asking patients to schedule their visit ahead of time with the store so we can limit the number of people in a location to comply with social distancing guidelines. Please call your local Vista Optical to schedule your visit.

How do I prepare to visit a Vista Optical?

  • Scheduling must be done over the phone and we ask that you complete the paperwork in advance online.
  • We ask that patients wear facial coverings, not bring any companions unless necessary, temperatures will be screened when coming into the store.
  • No follow-up appointments are being taken at the current time.
  • Customers shopping for glasses will discard all rejected glasses for cleaning before they are re-stocked.

I had an eye exam scheduled before stores closed. How do I reschedule?

  • We will call or email you to reschedule your appointment.
