Our La Porte Eye Doctors and Staff

Why have an eye exam with an eye doctor?

Your eye doctors in La Porte understand how the human eye really works, and also understand diseases and conditions that affect your eyesight. Unfortunately, many eye diseases do not have obvious symptoms, and that’s why an eye exam is so important. In addition, eye doctors know how risk factors and age affect vision over time for old and young patients. Optometrists also understand the benefits of all different types of corrective lenses, including eyeglasses and contacts.

Because you are important to us, our optometrists in La Porte take the time to explain the results of your eye exam. We also listen to what you have to say about your eye care needs, and describe your various treatment options. We encourage you to ask questions and share your health information with us. Having the full picture of you health is vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
