Welcome to the Family Eye Care Center

Our staff are committed to superior eye care. Thorough eye exams determine the health of the eyes and the optimal treatment to improve vision. Regular eye examinations are key in preventing vision loss from common eye diseases and vision impairments that include myopia (near sightedness), hyperopia (far sightedness), and astigmatism.

Our dispensary is well equipped to provide treatment services like glasses and contact lenses. The optical has a wide range of frames from classic designs to high fashion in a wide price range to fit all budgets. The lenses and coatings used are high quality products that include such names as Nikon and Crizal.
