Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Stewart "To put it simply, we treat patients with the "old" golden rule.  If I don't want it for myself or my family,

I don't want you to have it either.   Accurate prescriptions don't feel as good as overdoses, but they allow

improvement over time, especially when the CAUSE of the symptom (like fixing the near, when the symptom is distance blur)

is treated with expertise, and the patient is made part of their own program of improvement.  Habits matter--I call it "eyegiene.""

Dr. Stewart and his staff go above and beyond in service. Glasses or contacts have always come in on time. Any problems were taken care of promptly and efficiently. Dr. Stewart has been available for emergencies and doing my annual check-ups for 10 years now. Efficiency accompanied by courtesy is a rare combination in today's business world, this business has both a rarity.
