Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Spindel "For many of us, good vision is our most precious gift. As we grow older, we experience changes in our vision that are perfectly normal. These changes can often be managed with glasses or contact lenses. However, some visual changes can only be treated by employing the appropriate medical or surgical techniques. It is my goal to provide you with the finest care in a personalized environment."

Patient Comments (1)

I am no stranger to eye exams, due to a Connective Tissue Disorder. My first visit with Dr. Spindle was the best exam, by far. He was extremely thorough.
