Louisiana Eye & Vision Center opened its doors in August 2012 with the hopes of offering expertise in medical eye care and unbeatable quality eye glass lens technology. We chose to embark on this adventure in the Buggy Capital of the world for two reasons: this was both of the doctor’s home towns and the small rural town had no other options within 30 miles in all directions. We turned a previous dental clinic into a patient first, expert technology based, high quality product producing office with the top-notch customer service and convenient eye care to all ages. This office offers an advanced diagnostic piece of equipment that is not found anywhere’s else in the parish; it is used for diagnosing, monitoring and aiding in the treatment of blinding eye diseases such as, macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.
