Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrist takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

“Vision is our dominant sense. We need good eyesight and vision to comprehend the world around us. Imbalances in our visual system can affect learning, behavior, attention and concentration. We provide Developmental Vision Exams, which identify vision problems for infants, todlers and adults. Vision is a learned skill that can be improved at any age. Optometric Vision Therapy helps one develop good visual skills that we need to function efficiently at school, work and play.”
