Armstrong & Small Eyecare Centre - COVID-19 Update - March 18, 2020

Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the difficult decision to close starting Wednesday, March 18 and we are hoping (depending on the conditions) that we will re-open on Monday, April 6th.

In our attempts to be as socially distant as possible and to protect you, our staff and all of our families, we recommend staying at home and following all of the precautions that have been set out by the city, province and the nation.

If you have specific questions about glasses, contact lenses or any other non-emergency / non-essential items please email us at and we will do our best to accommodate your request. As part of our services, we are happy to provide you the option of having your contact lenses sent directly to your home. If you currently have items on order, we will be in touch with you to make arrangements.

If you are calling about a specific ocular or visual emergency such as new flashes and/or floaters, a loss in vision or a suspected eye infection, please text or call Dr. Luke Small at 204-299-6587 or Dr. Matt Lepage at 204-573-8039 who are both providing on-call emergency services through our clinic. Please do this prior to going to Misericordia or to a walk-in clinic as we attempt to reduce their patient load at this time. Obviously, if you have been recently traveling or are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19, they will be able to direct you where to go for the proper care.

Please stay home as much as possible and stay safe.

Thank you from your Armstrong & Small Eyecare Team.
