We thought you and your members might be interested to learn that student loan relief is contained in the CARES Act. It includes an automatic 6½ month suspension of loan payments and interest.

Raymond Opticians has been deemed an essential business by Empire State Development & will continue to provide the best possible vision care for your members and their families.
The following is the information that they have provided to the MTABF:
We have suspended all Routine Eye Exams throughout our offices as per CDC recommendations. We are, however, open for business to handle your members essential Vision Care needs. At this time we are still capable of providing prescription eyewear, eyewear repairs, and contact lens replacements.
We have limited staff and have limited the hours of operation at all offices. We have also temporarily closed some stores that we feel we're not essential due to their close proximity to other Raymond Opticians locations. If any of your members are having trouble getting ahold of their "home" store please ask them to check our website for a nearby store. Our hours are constantly changing in this very fluid situation but as of now we are reachable Monday through Friday from 10a-4p at most offices on an alternating basis. https://raymondopticians.com/
We have been getting phone calls from patients who do require eye emergency visits. We have an extensive team of referring Ophthalmologists who are able to handle any emergency eye issues that your members and families may have. We are in constant contact with these local Eye Care Professionals and are willing and able to help with the referral process. Most of these offices would handle claims through your members Medical Insurance (this will be separate from the usual Raymond Opticians Vision Insurance.)
We are hoping to resume Routine Eye Exams at Raymond Opticians by sometime in May
