Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nieto "As a comprehensive ophthalmologist, I believe in the importance of thoroughly evaluating every aspect of the visual system from the tear film all the way back to the macula and optic nerve. I believe that the more thorough the exam the better the care that can be achieved and the better the patient can be educated about their eye health."
