Your eye health and vision exam will include the latest in digital retinal imaging, computerized visual field analysis, and wavefront auto-refraction. Our Doctors feel it is important to utilize the latest technology in your health and vision eye exam so that disease can be detected earlier and therefore managed better.
At VisionWorks Optometry we feel that frames are an important accessory in a person's wardrobe. Your glasses accent your style and personality. It is this desire for a unique personal look that inspires us to choose the stylish frames we carry. Your prescription will be filled with the quality, guaranteed, name brand lenses that the team at VisionWorks Optometry wear - and stand behind (pun intended!).
