Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mahootchi "We believe in helping people achieve their best vision with the best treatments and technology, at a price most can afford.

We don't believe patients should pay extra for testing and surgery that don't make them better.

For example, 95% of our patients see withing two clicks of no prescription (no matter what lens used). We don't charge extra for testing/technology to achieve that if the patients isn't getting a premium lens. 

Compare that to the results at many local places where people pay $300 or more extra for basic implants and results that are no different or better."
