Vision is our specialty! We offer comprehensive eye exams, developmental and neurological eye exams, and low vision services.

Our practice is built on friendly staff, professional optometrists, and state-of-the-art technologies to diagnose and treat vision problems (low vision and vision therapy services), refractive errors, and Post Trauma Vision Syndrome.

Vision is learned and develops from infancy. Did you know that eye exams are recommended beginning at age 6 months? Vision disorders occur in 1 in every 4 children. In fact, 60% of children receiving learning support have undiagnosed vision disorders contributing to their learning problems. Many vision problems go undetected by pediatric screenings or school screenings. This is because these screenings only screen visual acuity, which is just 1 of the 17 skills that make up the complex process of vision. 80% of what the brain processes daily is visual, and 65% of the brain is wired for visual processing. 20/20 is only the beginning!

In addition to glasses and contacts, we offer services and treatment options for common visual problems in children and adults. Specific vision therapy programs are designed to treat autism, ADHD/ADD, convergence problems, strabismus (lazy eye), amblyopia, eye tracking (oculomotor dysfunctions), accommodation disorders, ambient visual disorders, traumatic brain injuries, stroke, macular degeneration, and glaucoma.

Whether you wear glasses or contacts, we have the right lenses to suit your needs. Whether you want the latest fashion statement, or a traditional look, our staff can help you find a frame that is right for your style, and your budget.

Let Us Help Your Child Succeed!

To ensure academic success, vision testing is critical. If a vision issue is detected, it may explain several of the learning disabilities your child may be struggling with. We offer reading support and learning resources necessary for your child's academic success. PSSA scores may be referred to during the assessment and evaluation phase of treatment. We also offer concussion help if your child is displaying concussion symptoms following an injury. Contact us today!

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients


I was listening to a TED talk with Brene Brown and she was talking about the "Man in the Arena" quote from Teddy Roosevelt. It made me think of you. I used to think that everyone practicing medicine was willing to be on the cutting edge, but have learned that is actually rare. I think maybe because it involves risk of failure and criticism, and even physicians don't like to leave the safety of the known. I see what you fight for with all your patients and sometimes you find the answers and hi"
