Benefit from Our High-Tech Equipment

Visiting the eye doctor is no longer just reading lines off of a chart with a device to one of your eyes. Between our highly accurate phoropter to the advanced imaging, you receive a current diagnosis that allows our practitioner to determine the appropriate treatment approach, whether it be corrective eyewear or continuous monitoring, or various other approaches in between. 

Utilize Our Telehealth Services 

You don't always have the time to schedule an appointment where you can break away from the office for an hour early to make a daytime, weekday appointment. And if you're having trouble with your vision, getting behind the wheel of a car isn't safe. These are merely some of the scenarios where telehealth could benefit a patient. That's why we're happy to announce our telehealth service office to our patients. We should note that it's covered by most health insurance providers!

Receive the Time You Deserve 

A doctor's appointment should never feel like you're simply waiting in line for an item and being sent on your way. Our eye doctor believes in giving patients the time they deserve at our practice. You'll receive accurate answers to all your questions. Every appointment is customized to the patient’s situation, ensuring you get the care you need for your pressing eye health problems and guaranteeing you receive the right diagnosis.
