Our staff may be biased, but we have the best doctors in town! Dr. Loose and Dr. Ott dedicate themselves to Optometry, our practice, our staff, our communities, and most importantly our patients. Their warmth, friendliness, and compassion shine through with everything they do in or out of the office. The friendliness and compassion they have shine through everything they do within and outside of the practice. Educating patients on the importance of yearly comprehensive eye exams along with the prevention and treatment of vision problems are a priority our doctors make time for. They are strong advocates for children's vision and love to explain the differences of eye screenings versus comprehensive eye exams to parents and educators as well as teaching them about early detection and correction of vision problems in children. The passion our doctors share for vision is what encourages our staff to learn more about the optometric field, granting them more confidence to instruct and care for our patients with a higher ethics value and more affinity.
