Our practice

When we do eye exams, we refuse to cut corners. We always schedule ample time so you will never feel rushed. We provide complete eye care for both adults and children. Our comprehensive eye examinations check your eyes inside and out for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and all other eye diseases as well as high blood pressure, diabetes and other systemic diseases. Your visual skills and abilities are carefully evaluated and we pride ourselves on the accuracy of our eyeglass prescriptions.

After a thorough eye exam, the experienced staff at the Vision Development Center custom build a vision therapy program that includes one-on-one time with the therapist as well as take-home exercises that use the Socratic Method of building self awareness and confidence. The exercises, which are fun but can be challenging, are chosen based on age, ability and severity of condition.

Take a minute to answer the questions on our Exam Check List. If you answer “yes” to several of the questions, an eye exam is recommended.
