Your Eye Clinic in Columbus, Ohio

Good eyecare is important for children and adults alike. For children, this ensures their success throughout school and in their extra-curricular activities. The eyes are the window into the world of learning, and sharp vision means sharp learning.

Good eyecare for adults is essential to be sure that sight-threatening diseases that begin to creep up as you get older can be caught and treated successfully before damage can be done to your vision.

Our team of eye doctors with 85 years of combined experience will be able to help you with comprehensive eye exams, pediatric eyecare and treatment for eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy. We also provide Lasik and refractive surgery co-management for those who are ready to throw away their eyeglasses or contact lenses for good.
