“At a young age I noticed and appreciated the caring personalities of the optometrists who helped me with my eyecare needs. Their compassion motivated me to pursue a profession in Optometry, and I consider it my honor and mission to provide the same level of compassionate care to my patients day in and day out at James Eyecare and Optics Gallery.”
