Hate the Air Puff Test? Drops? Excess Paperwork?

Hate the Air Puff Test? Drops? Excess Paperwork?

We do too. So we eliminated those parts of an eye exam everybody dislikes and replaced them with the latest technology. In other words, we let our patients’ design how an eye exam is to be done – with your comfort and experience at the forefront.
