featured services what we offer

Comprehensive Eye Exams

Routine eye exams are a vital aspect of preventive eye care. Without routine eye exams, vision issues often go undetected since most eye disorders don't have clear symptoms.

Advanced Technology

STC Optometry is fully equipped with up-to-date and technologically-advanced equipment allowing our Doctors to provide you with the best care possible.

Contact Lens Fitting & Training

If you’ve never worn contact lenses before, it can seem a bit intimidating. After all, you’re inserting something into your eye! Let’s ease your mind about the first step – your contact lens exam. This post will walk you through what’s involved in a contact lens.

Treatment and Management of Eye Diseases

Our Doctors have obtained extensive training in order to diagnose, treat, and manage eye conditions such as cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. 

Eye Infections & Emergencies

If you are experiencing a medical emergency during office hours, please call our office immediately.

Surgery Co-Management

We specialize in providing co-management for Lasik, PRK, and Cataract procedures.

Myopia Management

Myopia is a common condition that tends to begin in childhood or teenage years, where the eyeball is longer than normal and leads to the image being focused in front of the retina. 

Clearer Vision, Brighter Futures for Kids!
