Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrist in Glassboro, NJ, takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describes your options and listens to your eye care needs. As maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which is vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
