MECA Hours of Operation Changes Effective March 23, 2020

Response to the Covid-19 Pandemic

As you all know, the Covid-19 virus is affecting our lives in many ways. The personal safety of our patients and staff are our top priority. At the strong recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), both Tennessee and Mississippi Departments of Health and the American Academy of Ophthalmology, we have made the decision to only see patients with urgent or emergent care needs until April 6, 2020. Other patients will be rescheduled to a later time in April. Our physicians are on call, so if you have a need or concern please call our office (901-767-3937) and leave a message. We are checking messages daily, and one of our staff will respond to you as soon as possible.

Please stay safe and watch our website for further information on the scheduling of patients.

Thank you, MECA Physicians, Management and Staff

Serving patients from all over the world, our surgery suites are equipped for the latest micro-surgery techniques. The Surgery Center provides our patients with the best ophthalmic surgical care available in an efficient and friendly manner.

MECA Laser and Surgery Center was the first freestanding surgery center dedicated to eye surgery in the state of Tennessee. Opened in 1985, the surgery center is Medicare approved and accredited by AAAHC, Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Heath Care.

Design, equipment and staffing at MECA all contribute to the high quality and efficient surgical care. Patients arrive just steps from the entry to the Surgery Center and the warm comfortable surroundings alleviate the anxiety and confusion patients often experience in hospitals or larger outpatient departments.
