See clearer!

We provide exceptional comprehensive eye care.

At Mad River Eye Care, Dr. Shannon H. Mitchell and staff employ advanced technology to help you achieve your greatest potential for clear vision. This may involve eyeglasses fashioned from our extensive and varied collection of eyeglass frames for all budgets; or Dr. Mitchell’s hands-on approach to specialty contact lenses; or the latest diagnostic techniques for detecting and treating eye health diseases. No matter what it takes, we’ll help you to see clearer.

COVID-19 UPDATE

  • We are excited to return to our normal business hours of 8-5 Monday through Thursday!
  • We are available for all eye care services now, including general eye exams, emergency exams, contact lens and glasses exams!
  • Your safety and health are our primary concerns, and we’re making some adjustments to make sure you’ll be comfortable and safe in our office:
    • PACING OUR SCHEDULE: We have adjusted our schedule to limit patients to one at a time in the office.  Not only will this limit your interaction with others, but it will allow us to give you our undivided attention!  Please let us know ahead of time if you need to have a caretaker with you.
    • ALL VISITS TO OUR OFFICE ARE BY APPOINTMENT:  Please call or text to schedule your exam, glasses or contact lens pickups, glasses repairs and adjustments.  This helps us to plan for curbside pick-up when appropriate, and make sure our in office traffic is controlled.
    • WHEN YOU ARRIVE: please knock, call, or text….we’ll get the door for you!
      • We require anyone entering the office to WEAR A MASK covering both mouth and nose (we have disposables if you forget yours).
      • We will CHECK YOUR TEMPERATURE and ask about any symptoms of illness.
      • We will require you to WASH YOUR HANDS when you come in.
  • We will be wearing face masks at all times, and face shields if we need to be closer than 6 feet.
  • We will be disinfecting all surfaces and instruments after every patient.
  • We will be washing our hands frequently, and wearing gloves when handling your glasses or contact lenses, or performing any testing.
