COVID-19 Update

To Our Valued Patients:

Innovative Vision Care will be gradually reopening with a tentative date of Monday, May 4th!

We'll have slightly reduced hours and will be prioritizing care for patients with medical eye conditions, and those with urgent needs for glasses and/or contact lenses so they can get back to work safely, with clear vision.

To schedule an exam text or call 816-331-9590, or email [email protected]  

Rest assured, we will continue to focus on our patients, their safety and the quality care we've always provided. Our priority is a CLEAN (COVID-19 free) facility. To do so, we are meeting or exceeding all safety recommendations by the Center for Disease Control, the Missouri Department of Health and Cass County Department of Health for the type of care we provide.

​We're so excited to see our patients again and have missed you all greatly! We never take for granted the trust you’ve shown in our care, and we will keep you updated as much as possible.

Stay healthy!

The Innovative Vision Care team
