About Our Office


When you step into the office, you immediately notice that this is not the usual doctor's office...this is a relaxing place where you will be taken care of. From the art on the walls, to the modern decor, the office shows just how pleasant a place can be that cares for its patients. There is no front counter for the assistant staff to hide behind. Simply a desk with a comfortable chair for you to sit in to complete the necessary paperwork.



The office uses modern technology that provides for an unusually high level of care.



Perhaps most exciting is the modern frame area, showing the latest styles from designers such as Calvin Klein, Nike, and Nautica.


High quality contact lens care, eye disease care (like glaucoma, cataract and macular degeneration), and LASIK refractive surgery care completes this stylish, modern office.
