The Laster Eye Center Difference
The Laster Eye Center Difference means that we treat you like family because we’re a family business. Dr. Laster and his professional staff consider your vision to be the most important issue when you walk into our office.
At Laster Eye Center we want to be certain that your vision is the clearest it can possibly be and protected as much as it needs to be. If that means new glasses, contacts, or sunglasses, we’ll make sure you get what you need and work with your insurance company the entire time.
Your appointment starts with your eye examination
Your vision is precious, and Dr. Laster will ensure your eye appointment includes a comprehensive eye exam tailored to your individual needs.
Dr. Laster is known for his exceptional diagnostic skills and treatment of various eye conditions including conjunctivitis, glaucoma, dry eye, AMD and astigmatism.
Laster Eye Center is ready to test for and treat various eye conditions because eye care is not only our business; it’s what we care the most about. We have diagnosed and treated patients with degenerative eye diseases at very young ages, allowing them to make lifestyle changes that could be the difference between vision and blindness.
When it comes to the latest vision technology, we spare no expense. If we believe there is a technology that has the potential to improve the sight of our patients, we will get it.
