At Island Eye Care our philosophy is simple.

Listen to the patient.

As a licensed Optometrist, I provide thorough eye examinations to assess your visual needs and determine the best possible solution. My eye care services and optical products are tailored to each individual. I employ the latest in eye wear design, prescription lens technology, and contact lenses to deliver the clearest, most comfortable vision possible. I also offer the ultimate in clear, comfortable vision, CUSTOM LASIK, through my affiliation with TLC Laser Vision Centers.

In addition to my comprehensive approach to eye care, my opticians specialize in premium prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses. Island Eye Care is an authorized dealer for OLIVER PEOPLES, l.a. Eyeworks,, Alain Mikli, Silhouette, Paul Smith, prodesign:denmark, BLAC/Denmark, OGI, Kazuo Kawasaki, KAENON, and Ray Ban.

As your eye doctor I am committed to excellence in serving your eye care needs. I know how much your eye health and appearance can mean to the quality of your life.

I look forward to being part of your health care team.
