Our Vision Team

Our front desk team members will try to accommodate your busy schedule by finding appointments that suit your needs. By offering Thursday evening and Saturday appointments, we hope to find a time that works for everyone. Our team members will also do our best to help you understand your medical insurance and/or vision plan coverage and discuss how it applies to your vision and ocular health needs.
We also take pride in providing our patients with trained opticians to style, fit, and adjust your spectacle frames. They are a great resource for any questions you may have about the different ophthalmic lenses that are available- we offer only the best, high quality lenses to our patients.
