Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Marrotte "We use the latest equipment and offer the most advanced materials and techniques to create a Customized care plan for each patient. We offer the widest variety of vision correction options available today, from eyeglasses to contact lenses to Ortho-Keratology Lenses to Laser Eye Surgery Consultation.

Also, most people know very little about maintaining good eye health and vision.  At the end of each exam, we summarize the exam results and outline the proposed treatment plan for each and every patient.  When you understand what is happening and how we are going to treat the problems, it tends to reduce the anxiety and increase compliance."

Was blown away by how Dr. Marrotte was with my exam....first time in a long time a Doctor took the time and initiative to examine my eyes to determine the correct way to fix my problem! I never thought I'd be able to get 20/20 vision out of my lazy eye! THANK YOU! Also correct my Toric lens implant...more

Dr. Marrotte and his staff were very competent, friendly and professional. I ordered two pairs of glasses on a Monday afternoon, and they were ready just two days later! I am very pleased with the glasses, and will definitely go back for my next eye exam.
