Helping Kids Learn to Read, Every Day.
One of the things that we really believe in is pediatric eye care. Everyone on our team bends over backwards for kids! We do everything necessary to help kids learn to read, and it’s something that we’re really good at.
Kids face many new challenges as they go to school and experience the world. Our office wants to ensure that they aren’t facing additional challenges from their vision.
Our eye doctors perform extensive testing to help us learn about reading challenges that a child may be facing. With over 14 years of experience as local eye doctors in Hawley, PA, we’ve learned how to develop rapport and trust with our young patients.
Working together, we help give kids the tools and confidence they need to succeed.
Advanced Technology Means More Accurate Diagnoses and Effective Treatments
Our commitment to providing the best care, advice, and comfort is based on our understanding and extensive use of advanced diagnostic testing and modern treatments.
By staying on top of our field as it moves forward, we can ensure that we offer Hawley the best in modern eye care from eye doctors they can trust.
