DALLAS, May 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Eyemart Express, a leading national optical retailer and the fastest provider of glasses in the industry, announced today the company will resume operations to serve essential eye care needs at 72 select stores on Monday, May 4. With safety at the forefront, the decision to open was informed by guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), medical experts, and multi-level government directives. The optical retailer also analyzed local-level COVID-19 cases and consulted with the company's local store associates and affiliate doctors in order to keep all parties safe while providing an essential service.
The company has also introduced enhanced safety protocols, including checking associates' temperatures, providing protective equipment, and limiting the number of customers in stores at a time, to give peace of mind while shopping for affordable and high-quality eyewear.

Eyemart Express aims to open all 218 stores by early June. In the meantime, the optical retailer will continue monitoring recommendations from the CDC and medical experts and will open additional locations as soon as it is safe to do so.
