Doctors J.D. Springston, Ashley Springston, Tim Troutman and Andrew Fischer rely on years of experience and training to treat and manage ocular medical conditions, as well as determine glasses and contact lens prescriptions. Our doctors regularly attend continuing education classes to keep them up to date with current developments in detection and treatment of eye diseases.  They also work closely with local ophthalmology teams when referrals, surgeries, or more specialized treatment is needed.  If you are in need of an eye exam or consultation, come in for a visit and see why our patients have remained so loyal over the years!

Professional Eyecare offers a separate optical boutique, Eyewear Designs. Our eyewear consultants provide you with the best customer service.   The consultants will inform you of all your eyewear options, including frame, various lens materials, and coatings that are available.  Our approach is to allow you to have all the information on options so that you can make the most informed decision on what will best fit your visual needs as well as your budget.
