Ophthalmology and Optometry Services

If you are having vision problems, seeing spots, or dealing with anything else related to your eyes, we will perform a thorough examination to diagnose the problem. We will then outline our treatment recommendations. Often, all that is needed is a change to your glasses or contact lenses.

We are also here for you when you have diseases such as diabetes, cataracts or glaucoma. Discovering a diagnosis that could potentially affect your vision is a very anxious time for any patient. We will be with you every step of the way, from a thorough explanation of the problem to regular follow up visits to ensure that your eyes are getting the treatment they need.
