Many vision problems begin at an early age, so it's important for children to receive proper eye care from the time they are infants.

    'I love coming to work every day and watching the transformation in our patients. It never ceases to amaze me how being able to see clearly and without pain boosts their confidence and restores independence. So many people are living with limitations due to visual impairment – and might not even know it! Working here with Dr. Anderson has shown me how even the smallest improvement in one’s sight can make a huge positive impact on their lives.”

  • Terry Noble
    'As a child, I had a hard time at school. I had difficulty reading and was labeled a “slow learner.” It was only later revealed that vision problems were at the root of my difficulties. Once I saw an eye care professional and was fitted with corrective lenses, my performance in school excelled. We see these type of success stories every day at Dr. Anderson and it’s one of the many things that makes my career so rewarding!”
