Senior Eye Exams & Services

Living life to the fullest with doctors that care

Alas, our vision tends to change as we transition into our later years. That’s why it’s crucial to schedule an annual eye exam with a skilled licensed optometrist to check for threats to our vision.

Your WeCare partners will make sure you leave our offices with a comprehensive eyecare plan, so you can enjoy your golden years in optimal health and with peace of mind.
