Our Eye Doctors

Our eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. We know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and we understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Our eye doctors take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

When he isn’t using his eyes to check out your eyes, Dr. Tucker loves digital photography. Any visit to his office includes a view of a few of his favorite shots!
