For the health of our patients, staff, and our community, Garbig Family Eye Care will be closed for routine care until April 1st, 2020.

The CDC issued a statement on Tuesday March 17th urging that we “postpone Routine eye care visits.”

We will continue to provide Emergency eye care only on a case by case basis.

Emergency eyewear or contact lens concerns only can be addressed by texting 859-441-3400 or emailing garbigfamily@fuse.net.

As a local, family-owned business, we SINCERELY appreciate each and every one of you for trusting us with your eye care.

Please keep yourself and your loved ones safe during these difficult times. We look forward to seeing and serving you as soon as possible!

Drs. Garbig, Kerestan and Staff
