Understanding Vision

Kids

Pediatrics

Eye care for children is much different from that of an adult and even drastically different than that of a senior adult. A child’s ability to see develops rapidly in the first months of life.

Teens

Teens

If you are a teenager you will be experiencing your own unique visual issues. The teen years often bring about the first signs of inability to see at distances.

Adults

Adults

In your adult years you’ve most likely have learned to deal with your glasses or contact lenses in order to see. Eye care in adults is important in that as our eyes age or vision often worsens.

Seniors

Seniors

By age 65, 1-in-3 Americans have some form of vision-impairing eye disease. It’s vital that seniors get regular eye exams to check for vision conditions that can lead to partial or permanent vision loss.

After my mother in law recommended I see who she would go to for eye exams I never went to anyone else. Dr. Tucker also now sees both my daughters aged 6 and 10 and they cooperate perfectly with him because he is great with kids and you should see his balloon animal talents too. As for the selection in frames and lenses I feel they cannot be beat in price and customer service.

As a college student, I didn't have my primary eye doctor available. I was so relieved when I found them and they took care of me like I've been their client forever! They did a great job and made me feel at home. I also loved their large selection of glasses making finding a new pair a piece of cake!
