Protect your child’s future.

We see many children for their eye care needs from infants to late teens. As a child grows their needs change from a flexible infant’s frame to durability, then style in early teens and possibly contact lenses in the later teen years. We understand children are more aware than ever of style and their parent’s desire for durability; finding the right frame for both is easy when you have a great selection. Whether it is eyeglasses, protective sports eyewear or contact lenses we can help children feel comfortable with their correction and back it with customer service and guarantees that can make children’s eye care cost effective.

Should my kid be wearing protective glasses during sporting events?

If you are concerned by any of these facts, make an appointment for your child.
