We continue to strive to meet that goal for you today. We are your old-school optical craftsmen/women who know about optics and love modern style. We enjoy discussing your individual vision needs and how glasses and contact lenses can meet your needs. Heidi and Raymond and Carey are licensed opticians and contact lens fitters with over 60 years of experience combined.
