Your Dedicated & Caring Provider of Quality Vision Services

Our first practice opened in Ankeny in 1975, since that time we have grown and added 2 additional locations in Altoona and Johnston to better serve our patients.  It allows us to provide the same quality of care and service closer to where you live. When you visit our practice, you’ll be treated to friendly, attentive care and advanced diagnostic technology. 

We offer comprehensive eye exams for children, adults, and seniors and also provide treatment for dry eyes, low vision, and common eye diseases. We stock a varied selection of designer frames from top brands. Our staff are knowledgeable and can help you find exactly what you need—and want!
