We are proud to be a full service Optometric office. We offer comprehensive eye care for the whole family, beautiful eyewear, emergency eye treatment, and contact lens examinations.


Comprehensive Eye Examinations

At EYESEE Vision Care, your doctor will not only determine your best and most comfortable eye glasses prescription, they will assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate the overall health of your eyes. Using the latest diagnostic technology your doctor will screen for evidence of diseases such glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eye syndrome, cataracts and others.

Medical Eye Care

Our doctors care about preserving sight. At EYESEE we take a special interest in diagnosing, treating, and managing eye diseases. If you need to be checked for cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, have concerns for glaucoma, dry eye or macular degeneration, do not hesitate to contact us.

If after hours please call the office so that you can be directed Dr. Soave’s cell phone.

Pediatric Eye Exams

The American Optometric Association recommends a child’s first eye exam at 6 months of age. Unless otherwise recommended, their next exam should be scheduled at 3 years of age and again before kindergarten.

A vision screening at school or the pediatrician’s office is not the same as a comprehensive eye exam. Even if your child passes a vision screening, a comprehensive eye exam is important to test the complete visual system. Dr. Soave and the staff of EYESEE Vision Care is trained and equipped to handle patients of any age. A pediatric eye exam may look significantly different from an adult eye exam. We also pride ourselves on having a large selection of eyeglasses suited for kids.
