We believe the optometrist is the hero of primary eye care, safeguarding their patient’s ability to experience his or her best vision. For many people, an optometrist is the first point of contact into the healthcare system. The eyes offer a window into overall health, and thus this first touch point can be critical for patients getting the care they need for serious conditions.
Optometrists practicing in offices inside our locations are primary eye care specialists. They often catch systemic issues, in addition to providing prescriptions for clearer vision. That’s why National Vision and the independent practices empower ODs to provide comprehensive eye exams that meet or exceed the standards set forth by the American Optometric Association and individual states.
