Dr. Arthur Franz III, OD
Our practice is about access to quality care at reasonable costs. We fit special needs contact lens patients, and take the time to get a quality refraction that is comfortable for the patient. Refraction of the eye is not a skill that is learned by memorization or from a manual. It is like tuning a piano by ear. It takes years of practice and lots of experience. The same is true with fitting contact lenses. It is a skill that is honed with practice. I have 35 years of "tuning your vision" with lenses and contacts. I have been certified as a therapeutic licensed optometrist since 1993 when the Louisiana legislature expanded the scope of practice of optometrists. In June, I will become certified in Botox injections for migraines and cosmetic procedures. Also in June I will be certified to perform laser surgery on patients for post operative cataract. I was voted the #1 contact lens practitioner in my class of 150 at Southern College Of Optometry in 1980 and won Bausch and Lomb's "Outstanding Achievement Award." I am a member of Stone Creek Tennis Club and Money Hill Golf and Country Club. I also enjoy photography, golf and travel.
