Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Behforouz "Eyecare with Compassion, Professionalism and Results

The more patients we see and treat, the more we realize that each person that comes to us is truly unique in their needs; each diagnosis is atypical to another and each path of treatment is customized to the individual.

Our practice is built upon a patient-focused approach that integrates the latest advances in ophthalmic technology with the care and expertise of a skilled physician and surgeon.  We believe it is a privilege to be entrusted with the care of our patients' eyes and the overall health of their vision -  and, it is a responsibility we embrace.

Dr. Behforouz and his entire staff continually strive to be the best providers of comprehensive ophthalmic care in Central Indiana."
