    If you need Surgery or a Procedure

    We are following state guidelines and are prioritizing people who need care right away. We hope to begin elective (non-urgent) procedures in the near future. Please talk to your CHA care team if you have questions or concerns.

    Your Health and Safety

    Your health is important and we are here for you. Please call us for any new issues, nagging concerns or chronic health needs. To protect your safety, we are following strict measures to clean our facilities, make sure everyone is wearing a mask, and screen patients and employees for COVID-19.

Routine Eye Care and Contact Lens Fittings

During an annual eye exam, our Eye Care team team will check your vision and eyes. Many insurance plans and vision plans cover routine eye exams. So even if you don’t have trouble seeing, we recommend an eye exam every year. 

Routine Eye Care includes:

  • Comprehensive eye exams for people of all ages
  • Vision testing
  • Prescriptions for eyeglasses
  • Contact lens fittings

Note: our Somerville optical shop is tempoirarily closed due to COVID-19. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Eye Surgery and Procedures

CHA has some of the most experienced eye surgeons in the entire Boston area. You can find a whole range of eye care, including Laser Vision Correction, Laser-assisted Cataract Surgery and specialized retina care.
