We consider ourselves to be Dr. Jones’ “right arm” in giving our patients the professional level of eye care we strive to maintain in our office. We want to provide them with today’s best quality of eye care in a friendly and caring environment. We also strive to maintain a current knowledge of the latest materials and techniques available. Our office is proud to have encouraged many of our employees and friends to seek optometry, opticianry, and related fields as careers. One of our own employees received her doctoral degree in Optometry. Our current staff have degrees in Education, Criminal Justice, Music, and Nutrition.
