Our mission is to provide state-of-the-art eye health and vision care in a compassionate environment using state-of-the-art technology where patients and family needs come first.
Our optometrist helps children and adults overcome a variety of visual difficulties, including computer vision syndrome, color blindness, and lazy eye. Potential treatments for these eye health issues include special contact lenses, eye drops, and other non-invasive treatments.
Laser eye surgery has become one of the most popular solutions for reducing dependence on corrective lenses. Our optometrist co-cares both LASIK and PRK surgeries at our clinic, and works directly with our surgeons. Both LASIK and PRK reshape your cornea to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
For patients seeking a non-surgical option to correct their vision problems, our doctor can prescribe a special contact lens that gradually reshapes the cornea during sleep. Corneal refractive therapy (CRT), also known as orthokeratology, can safely and effectively correct the vision of children and adults.
About 40 percent of Americans older than 65 suffer from cataracts. At our optometry practice, we perform advanced laser cataract surgery co-care with our in-clinic surgeons. Cataract surgery removes the natural clouded lens and replaces it with a synthetic intraocular lens for improved clarity and focus.
