Eye Care

Our vision care specialists are here to promote effective eye care practices and contribute to your overall good health.

The Eye Care Department delivers care to children and adults of all ages. We pride ourselves in giving the most comprehensive care possible, by a team of experienced optometrists and consulting ophthalmologist.

Eye exams can help detect cataracts, glaucoma and retinal disease, as well as diabetes and high-blood pressure. It is important for children to be examined early and often, to prevent the development of strabismus (an eye turn or lazy eye) and amblyopia (decrease in vision, not corrected by glasses). A proper eyeglass prescription can help improve the quality and function of your life.
