About us - Eye & I Story

At Eye and I, we wanted to build a practice that allowed us to provide more for our patients.

Having worked in our profession for many years at other work environments, we have experienced the joys that come from helping patients with their vision needs.

Whether it be managing a patient’s eye health or providing vision correction, it was always gratifying for us.

But at the same time, we also felt limited because we knew that we could do more.

More professional eyecare services for more people requiring more specialist care.

We wanted to deliver a complete experience from beginning to end for our patients with one goal in mind:

To make a significant difference for you.

When we can help your child progress well in school and life because they can now see well, when we can help you better manage your eye health or when we can help to improve your quality of life, that is the significant difference we strive for and that is our personal reward.

It is the singular focus of our practice and something we are passionate about every day.

We hope that you enjoy our services as much as we enjoy providing it for you.
