Optometry Services

At Nostalgic Eye Care, Inc, we are pleased to offer a wide range of optometry services for our community! Our experienced optometrist can provide you with thorough eye evaluations, determine if you need corrective lenses and your exact prescription strength, fit you with the appropriate specialty eyewear, and help you pick out the most flattering pair of glasses for your face shape and skin tone.

Our new patient appointments always begin with a comprehensive eye exam. If you are unsure of your family’s eye health history, it’s helpful to research beforehand, so we can better evaluate your own eye health. Visit our online patient center to download supplemental forms you can fill out before your appointment. If you have never had a comprehensive exam, don’t worry! All the tests and exercises are simple and painless.

We can answer your questions about optometry services, our eye care practice, eye health products, and more.

Schedule your eye exam today by requesting an appointment online, or by calling our office.

Specialty Contact Lenses


For those patients with certain ocular and medical conditions, contact lenses provide a distinct opportunity to improve patient quality of life. Specialty contact lenses are indicated primarily for patients with irregular corneas, patients with a high refractive error and if a spectacle correction fails to provide adequate vision. Many vision plans cover or contribute towards specialty contacts in such instances. Specialty contacts may be the answer to improving your quality of life instantly.

Dry Eye Treatment


Dry eye is a multifactorial disease that effects patients of all ages. Dry eye is a prevalent disease in our society but yet still it is under served. We provide a thorough dry eye evaluation and offer several treatment options for patients that suffer from dry eye.

Home-Based Vision Therapy


Studies show that 10 percent of the pediatric population suffer from a binocular disorder. Many binocular disorders may go undiagnosed if a child has never had a comprehensive eye examination. Binocular disorders can hinder a child’s learning ability by causing headaches, blur and causing a child to frequently lose their place while reading. Home-based vision therapy is a cost effective and easy method to treat most binocular disorders.
