Meet Our Doctors

At EyeCare Specialties of Pennsylvania, we take your eyes seriously, and your eye health is our main priority. We welcome patients of all ages, and our board-certified doctors and other highly trained eye care specialists will perform a comprehensive eye exam and screening to determine your overall eye health and to identify any eye conditions or diseases. Most eye diseases can be treated or managed successfully if the condition is identified or detected early on. Also, eye exams can reveal a range of other undiagnosed health issues like cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes. These undiagnosed conditions can also affect your vision.
