Optometrists specialize in understanding how the human eye works, as well as assessing diseases and conditions that affect your vision - many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and are experts in prescribing and fitting corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of the eye exam to each patient, and discuss your eyewear options and listen to your specific needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which can be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
