Periodic eye exams are important to ensure your -- or your child's -- vision is at its best. Routine exams also allow us to diagnose potentially serious conditions at the earliest possible stage. Our eye specialists provide consultations, evaluations, and routine eye exams to children and adults, including refraction for glasses and fitting and management of contact lenses. We can also quickly direct you to specialists if you are interested in laser eye surgery for vision correction or if glaucoma, cataracts, or another more complex eye concern is detected.
