Regardless of how you get to us, you will receive personalized care and all the attention you require. When you are with us, you are treated as if you are our only patient. We will take our time with you, and make sure you get the high quality service and accurately applied treatment you deserve.

Your Full Service Eye Care Provider

Our first goal when you come to our office is to make sure you are as comfortable as possible and well-informed on everything we are doing and why. We explain every part of our exams and other procedures in great detail so you always know exactly what is going on. We also take the time to answer any and all of your questions, and you can ask as many as you like, until you feel comfortable about what we are doing or recommending.

We will also go over your payment options with you, which include vision insurance of most types, FSA accounts, cash, credit cards, and other financing options. We don't want money to get in the way of you receiving the eye care you deserve, and will work with you in any financial situation to come up with the solution that is best for you.

At our office, we perform comprehensive eye exams that most people get on an annual or semi-annual basis, to make sure your eyes are in good health and stay that way. If you need vision correction, we also do exams for glasses and contact lenses, and write prescriptions for both. You can purchase your eyewear here, using our extensive and attractive collection and excellent pricing, or take your prescription to your eyewear provider of choice.

We also do glaucoma testing, and handle pre-and post-operative care for any eye surgeries you may need or choose, such as LASIK. When it comes to your eye health and well-being, we are with you every step of the way. Call our office to make an appointment for your initial consultation and exam. We are looking forward to meeting you!
