With over thirty years experience under the leadership of Dr. Jay C Grochmal, we specialize in LASIK, cataract surgery, and glaucoma procedures.

We are a full-service ophthalmic & optical center; every patient’s eye care needs can be treated at our office. Our dedication to eye care extends beyond our own community. Our mission is to provide compassion and service also to those in need outside of the United States. We are also concerned about and have served patients in developing countries that cannot afford quality eye care. As a result, our doctors have made several trips to Third World countries to provide this much needed service.
