Our Doctors

As optometrists, our job is to provide our patients with the best vision possible through either glasses or contact lenses, and to treat and maintain the health of the eyes. In order to do this, we stay up to date on the latest innovations and technology available and make personalized recommendations to our patients.

Our optometrists take 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.
