Education Center

You Are in Good Hands

. . .

Our mission is to exceed your expectations for honest, caring, and technology-advanced eye care.


There are many educational resources online. We prefer to list resources from the American Academy of Ophthalmology and their EyeSmart patient education campaign. The material has been created by eye experts and educators. When EyeSmart articles are not available we link to the AAO EyeWiki page, which are more detailed articles about eye conditions. We also make available videos from a company called Rendia who specialize in medical educational videos.
