Welcome to Children's Eye Care and Family Eye Care.

We started as Children’s Eye Care in 1986 for one simple reason: better vision can completely change a child’s life. There is no greater feeling than helping a child, and since day one we’ve tried to give children a warm, friendly place where they receive the best possible care. Since 2000, we have expanded our practice we have both an ophthalmologist and an optometrist on staff to offer your entire family the highest level of professional eye care. We specialize in:

  • Comprehensive eye exams for children and adults to diagnose eye diseases, muscle problems and prescribe glasses and contact lenses.
  • Evaluation of children’s eye problems such as: crossed eyes, amblyopia or lazy eye.
  • Non- surgical treatment to straighten eyes that turn inward or outward in children and adults.
  • Complete contact lens services for teens and adults including: evaluation, fitting, training and follow up care of all types of contact lenses. We specialize in helping children and adults who are interested in wearing contact lenses for the first time.
