Neighborhood in FocusPearle Vision was founded by Dr. Stanley Pearle over 50 years ago, and one of the principles upon which he founded this business was involvement in local communities. That principle still holds true today. We are not only dedicated to providing eye care to patients that visit Pearle Vision, but also delivering that same genuine eye care to people in the community outside of our eye care center. We engage in settings like schools, senior centers, and other various locations, to help people all across our neighborhood understand the importance of eye care. These are just a few examples of how we live by this promise.

Optical Coherence Tomography Screenings Now Available
Optical coherence tomography is a state of the art non-invasive test that allows the doctor see the layers of the retina in the back of the eye. That's important because it helps with early detection, diagnosis and treatment of many retina conditions including macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease.
