“One of my greatest pleasures is to see the bright shining face of one of our young patients who has just discovered the joy of reading, or has just received their first ‘Great Job!’ on a piece of homework – or maybe for the first time in their young life has had the pleasure of Mom or Dad sincerely saying: ‘I’m proud of you’!”
The purpose of this practice is to provide the highest possible quality and extent of Optometric services to every patient. It is equally important that each patient perceive that they are being provided with the best quality of care. To achieve this goal, there are 4 basic criteria that Dr. Lawless and each staff member must constantly strive for:
1) GENUINE CONCERN and care for each patient as a person.

4) EDUCATE our patients and our community on the importance of proper eyecare.
