With stay-at-home orders ending and Texas entering Phase 2 of its reopening, optometrists and dentists are seeing business start to bounce back.
Jenna Clifton, office manager of Tomball Vision Clinic, said the clinic was closed for two days during the pandemic, before reopening after being deemed an essential business.
“[Business] did pick up recently, but it has been back and forth on a week to week basis,” she said.
Clifton said the clinic has reduced its hours to 9 a.m.-4 p.m. from Monday to Thursday, and 9 a.m.-noon on Fridays.
As the clinic employs a small number of staff and only has one doctor, Clifton said they have been able to maintain office capacity at less than 10 people.
