Many of our clients have common concerns when looking for an eye care specialist. Some of these may sound familiar to you...
"Now that I'm 40, I notice it's harder and harder to read everything from restaurant menus to my kids' homework assignments. My eyes get so tired when I sit down at the computer, I'm missing out on keeping in touch with family and friends online. I used to have some allergy problems once in a while, but now it seems like my eyes are itchy and red almost all the time. I've tried over-the-counter eye drops and readers, but they aren't really working for me anymore. I wonder what's really going on with my eyes, but how do I know where to go for the type of care I might need?"
"My family's moved around so much for my husband's job, we've never had time to build up any kind of rapport with an eye care professional. Both of our children wear glasses, and I can tell I need a new prescription. I'd like to take us all for a check up with someone I can really trust. I'm tired of the 5 minute exams, feeling rushed to pick out frames, and even worse, being sold on products I really don't want or need. I need a place to go for really great service where they actually take the time to hear what I have to say."
"My husband and I are both nearsighted, and now our daughter's suffering with blurred distance vision, too. We're really worried she's going to end up with eyesight as bad as ours! We've heard there are options for slowing down how fast nearsightedness progresses, but my husband's skeptical. I wonder where to go for the right treatment that could really help her. We need a doctor who really cares about our daughter's well-being. I know I need to see someone who will take the time to answer a lot of questions, and we both agree, we don't want to waste time with anyone who can't deliver results as promised."
"My son is really struggling at school due to his vision problem, and it's stressing out the whole family. He has difficulty reading, so his grades are low and he does terrible on tests. Now my wife tells me he's having trouble with other kids teasing him. We're constantly battling with him to finish his homework and try harder with studying, and it's frustrating. He just doesn't seem to be able to learn like the schools expect him to."
"I'm in my 40s now, and I'm worried about my eyesight. I have diabetes and glaucoma in my family history, and I wonder what's going to happen as I age. I've been to see an ophthalmologist, but I felt rushed through the visit. I felt like he didn't really care about my concerns. I know there has to be a better option - a doctor that actually wants to help me. I'd love to see a physician who will actually use their expertise to come up with a plan that can help with my vision health long term."
We work successfully with men, women and children who are eager for a superior experience with regards to eye care.
Although the top quality service and products we provide are ideal for many patients, we may not be a good fit for those who believe "value" equates to the lowest possible prices.
If you're comfortable sacrificing the quality of customer care and products you receive in exchange for a "bargain," we're not likely to be the best option for your needs.
