Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Clavenna "Our ability to see is one of the greatest gifts we have been given. As a doctor, the opportunity to change the lives of people who have been dependent on glasses or contact lenses provides me and my staff with a great sense of satisfaction. It?s a pleasure to see the joy on my patient's faces each day. I speak from personal experience, as well, having undergone vision correction surgery myself, which has given me a great sense of freedom."

Patient Comments (2)

Dr Clavenna took time to answer all my questions and made sure I was comfortable prior to and during my lasik procedure. Very efficient and a highly skilled doctor. May be a bit pricey but the peace of mind you get is worth it... I wouldn't trust my eyes to anyone else!

My experience with Dr. Clavenna and his staff was nothing short of excellent! Not only do I feel that Dr. and his staff were very thorough, everyone was very pleasant and had a sincere concern for not only my eyes, but my schedule and time in the office as well.
