Our doctors are highly trained in adult and pediatric vision care. You can be certain that you will receive the most comprehensive vision care possible in a warm and professional environment.

We provide routine and preventative care through comprehensive and developmental vision examinations.

Furthermore, our doctors understand how vision problems impact patient’s social, occupational, educational, and recreational endeavors. Our recommendations lead to resolution of vision problems utilizing the following:

  • Corrective glasses
  • Contact lenses including custom contact lens designs
  • Myopia control
  • Orthokeratology
  • Stress-relieving glasses, computer office lenses
  • Low vision devices including glasses, telescopes, microscopes and magnifiers
  • Vision rehabilitation for head injury, concussion, and stroke

One of our main goals is providing annual vision examinations in order to follow vision development, detect early signs of eye and systemic diseases and intervene to prevent vision loss. This type of vision care is possible when patients commit to continuous and regular care with the same doctors.

Our offices provide expert optical services, including on-site finishing of prescription glasses. We are mindful of out patients’ optical needs and desires when choosing our frames. Most importantly, our optical staff excels at recommending the proper lens and frame to meet the patient’s visual needs.
