After 24 years of private practice, the goal of the office is still the same, to provide every patient with the best quality eye exam possible. A lot of time is spent with each patient in order to make sure they not only get the most accurate prescription possible, but also to screen for any ocular diseases to make sure they can keep the vision they have for the rest of their life. Every patient is treated in the same way we would treat a family member.
