Our Doctors

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. 

Our  optometric physicians adeptly  explain the results of your eye exam, home-in on  your options, and listen to your eye care needs. They are happy to make recommendations, using evidence-based professional judgment. 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/medical problems.
