Your eyes are connected to your body through blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues that often show signs of health problems before other parts of your body. This puts your optometrist in the unique position to diagnose health conditions sometimes before your family physician can.

No matter your age, regular eye exams are essential for maintaining your eye health. We prefer to see you annually so we can really get to know you and your eyes. These visits allow us to monitor your prescription and eyes for changes and establish a baseline for your ocular health.
