To work together as a team of trained professionals to provide the highest quality eye care and total patient satisfaction through professional service and commitment.
Our Eye Care
Conveniently located in the Bristol County Medical Center, the office has been providing comprehensive eye care including the treatment of eye diseases, infections, and emergencies to the residents of the East Bay and beyond since 1991. We are skilled in the fitting and trouble shooting of all types of contact lenses. Our doctors and staff have over fifty years of combined experience helping people maintain good eye health and to look and see their best.
Our Volunteer Commitment
Each year we assemble a group of 50-70 volunteers to travel to Central America to provide care for the needy. In a week long clinic we will see up to 3,500 individuals free of charge for eye examinations and glasses, eye surgery, dental examinations, hearing aids,and general medical care. We have volunteered domestically with Remote Area Medical in parts of Tennessee and the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. The group has no political or religious affiliations, just people helping people. Our goal is to make life a little easier for children and adults living in very difficult conditions. Since 1987 we have helped over 800,000 people in Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Panama. see Our Giving Back
