Eye Clinic With Offices in the Area Notifies Patients of Potential Security Breach

September 21, 2022 10:35am

The Wolfe Eye Clinic, which operates out of 25 locations around the state including area counties, is warning patients of a security breach that may have involved personal information.

A statement on the Wolfe Clinic's website indicates there's no evidence patients' personal information was accessed or has been misused, but out of an abundance of caution patients are being notified by letter about the incident. 

Last December, someone hacked into the electronic medical records platform called myCare Integrity that many of the country's eye care clinics use.  The unauthorized party deleted some files and databases before being detected. 

The Wolfe Clinic says none of its patients have reported cases of identity theft that may be related to the security breach. 

One of Wolfe Eye Clinic's main office locations is in Spencer.  One of their Family Vision Centers is located in Sac City.
