Our Difference

Our eye doctors go the extra mile. Our opticians find the perfect fit.

Your Local Eye Doctor is not an impersonal, corporate brand. In each of our network of eye care practices, you’ll find people who care, committed to providing a personal touch in every visit.

Our eye doctors get to know you and help you maintain your eye health. Our opticians match you with frames and lenses that best suit your needs and preferences. We take care of the important details on the back end so that our doctors and staff can focus on what really matters — You!
