At Foster Vision, we facilitate your eye care services by doing our best to schedule appointments on your time available and making sure you get prompt and effective care. Our optometrists provide conscientious, personalized services that include educating you on how to care for your eyes. Our doctors of optometry also takes the time to explain any procedures you need and answer your questions about treatments so that you’re fully aware of the state of your vision and eyes. Whether you’re coming in for a routine eye exam or consultation for eye surgery, you can have full confidence in our optometry care.

Services We Provide

Our full service vision clinic offers a wide range of optometry care services for your entire family. Our services include:

  • Comprehensive adult and pediatric eye exams
  • Prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses
  • Contact lens evaluation and fitting
  • Diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases such as dry eye, macular degeneration, and other eye diseases  
  • Consultation for LASIK surgery
  • Eye emergency treatments

Regular pediatric eye care is a must to ensure your children are seeing as well as they should throughout their childhood. Poor sight puts your kids at a greater risk of accidents and hinders them from doing their best in school. If your child has refractive errors, we’ll make sure he or she gets an accurate prescription for eyeglasses or contacts to correct his or her sight. Our optometrists’ goal is to help you and your family maintain optimal eye health and vision from childhood through the senior years.

As you age, you’re more susceptible to vision changes and eye diseases such as dry eye, macular degeneration, and cataracts. By scheduling annual eye exams, we can catch eye diseases in their early stages when they are easier to treat. Regular eye care is key to preventing vision loss in your senior years.

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

    Yesterday was my very first time ever going here. I saw Marielle and she was absolutely amazing. She is very very sweet and fun to be around. It's a small little clinic, but very welcoming. The assistants were fantastic too. Let's just say, my crawling 1 yr old loved it so much she started walking on her own there. They were just as excited as I was, it was like they instantly became family. I've never felt so welcomes at any eye doctors as I did here.

    Brittany Curry

    Very detailed thorough exams. Friendly caring staff. Dr. Kwon found my husband had a serious eye condition. She found a specialist who would take him immediately. Highly recommend.

    Mary Elliott

    Thorough, efficient, courteous, and fair. I haven't been to an optometrist in close to 8 years... I researched TONS before I came to Foster Vision and am glad I did. They were quick and helped me entertain my kids while I had my eyes examined. (In which I was VERY grateful.)

    Monique Nelson

    Wow! This is an experience. Dr. Kwon is amazing. She explained a lot of different options to me for my contacts and made sure that I had a comfortable pair before I ordered them. She even gave me a couple sample boxes to try out for a few days. She asked all the right questions to make sure I was getting the correct prescription, comfort, practicality, and value. She even handled a problem created by my insurance company. This is an example of how both eye care and customer service should
