The optometrists at Insight Optical specializes in understanding how the human eye works, as well as diseases, dry eye treatment and conditions that affect your vision - many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Our eye doctors understand how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Dr. Derek Feifke and our other Burlington optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
