These are two common eye conditions that are growing among the population. Cataracts are highly common in people 50 and older. We can monitor your cataracts and let you know when it may be time for you to get corrective cataract surgery. This surgery gets rid of cataracts permanently so that you see better. We also treat dry eye, a condition that many people get from looking at screens or from certain medications and medical conditions.

What Our Patients Are Saying

  • Lost my glasses at the beach & was able to stop in at Visionary Eye Care the next morning. Everyone was very sweet and aware of the urgency of the situation and worked quickly to get me a pair of glasses that would work for me for the rest of my vacation. They saved the day! Thank you Visionary!

  • I had my eyes checked originally in July, and recently decided to switch to contacts. Dr. Nguyen and his staff made the transition easy! And the follow up to recheck everything was just as smooth! Very professional and sweet admin ladies at the front desk to welcome you!! Definitely recommend this practice.

  • This is my second time visiting this office and both times I have been very happy with the service. From the time I walked in the door to when I left, every one was so polite and professional. Dr. Nguyen is wonderful and I appreciate that he takes the time to listen to concerns. I did not feel rushed at all and he made sure I didn’t have any unanswered questions before leaving.The gentleman that helps fit you for glasses is so pleasant as well (so sorry I do not remember his name).Overall just a great experience!

  • Took my 9 year old for his first eye exam and it went great. The Dr and his staff are very good with kids. The Dr explained everything as we went along, and answered all of my questions in detail.My son said that he liked them and that it wasn't bad at all. Highly recommend Visionary Eye Care!
