Optometry | Male | 61 years old

I have been in the practice of Optometry for 30 plus years now and feel that I have mastered the art of refraction (determining eyeglass prescriptions) and I have a vast understanding and knowlegde of eye and vision problems. I love working with people one on one and figuring out each individual's eye and vision concerns. If a specialist is needed, I am very capable of referring a patient to the best specialist for their particular needs. Read more
