Choosing an Optometrist

Choosing an OptometristIf you have not seen an optometrist lately, you may have an undiagnosed eye problem. Most eye diseases do not have any symptoms other than vision loss, and by the time most people notice a decrease in their visual acuity, the disease has already caused permanent vision loss. Our optometrists can help you catch eye diseases early and maintain your vision.


Optometrists are medically trained to diagnose and treat common vision problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, glaucoma, cataracts and dry eye as well as many other eye diseases.

Choosing the Right Eye Doctor for Your Needs

It is important to search out an eye doctor that has experience in treating many different eye diseases and conditions. To aide yourself in this process, we recommend finding an eye doctor that lives close to your home or work. You will be more likely to schedule and attend appointments that are convenient for you.
