Optometry for the Whole Family: Our Services

Family Vision Clinic Farmington is dedicated to serving both individuals and families, including patients of all ages. Out many services include:

Comprehensive eye and vision exams - Comprehensive eye and vision exams ensure that your eyes are working properly and aren't harboring any lurking diseases.

Pediatric optometry - Pediatric optometry is central to our work. We can check your children's eyes for any issues that might interfere with long-term visual development and coordination.

Senior eye care - Senior eyes may need extra care because of their vulnerability to degenerative diseases such as macular degeneration. We can help keep older eyes as healthy and functional as possible.

Corrective lenses - Could your vision use some help? From eyeglasses and sunglasses to contact lenses (including those "hard to fit" contacts), we can prescribe the ideal corrective lenses for your needs.

Eye disease/disorder treatment - We can diagnose and provide primary care for conditions such as dry eye, eye allergies, infections, injuries, glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic eye disease, and macular degeneration. We can also provide surgical referrals and eye surgery co-management.

    Mara C

    Loved everything about my visit! Friendly staff, answered all of my questions so I could understand the answers. Just awesome!!!


    Dr. Pam and her assistant did a great job making my five-year-old son’s first visit a success. I seriously didn’t think my son would cooperate with them, but with a lot of patience and silliness they won him over. Thank you so much.


    You all are by far the most friendly people I’ve ever been around and even though I didn’t come in a lot, I seem to be greeted with my name every time!
